Bridgewater is still sidelined after dislocating his knee and tearing the ACL in practice on August 30, 2016. In May head coach Mike Zimmer said "I'm probably more optimistic now about him potentially playing than I have at any point in time. But he still has a long way to go." Bridgewater threw some passes in individual drills at OTAs and Matt Vensel from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune did not rule out a return to the field in 2017.

Summary

If Teddy Bridgewater starts the season on the PUP list for the first six weeks of the season, the Vikings retain his rights without using the fifth-year option. Add the fact that Sam Bradford is due $17 million in 2017 and there have been no talks of a contract extension the quarterback battle of Bradford and Bridgewater could be interesting near the end of the year. There is no time table for Bridgewater right now as he suffered a torn ACL and a dislocated knee and the Vikings have been rather quiet on his recovery. (May 22)

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater may start season on PUP list (Fri Jul 21, 07:06 PM) - Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) likely will start the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Ben Goessling.

Our View: We've been saying this for weeks. Not only do they want to be super cautious with the future of their franchise, there's a monetary aspect to this. They are unlikely to keep Sam Bradford around due to the massive cap hit he represents next year, and if Bridgewater does not play this season they can preserve the fifth year of his contract. That gives them another year at a cheap price and more time to build up the offense of line and the rest of the offense to help Bridgewater out.

Vikings | No brace for Teddy Bridgewater (Thu Jul 13, 02:17 PM) - Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) has been working out without a brace on his surgically repaired knee. The extent of Bridgewater's workout regimen and timetable has not been fully disclosed, however, and he could begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Our View: This is great sign, but we're still wondering how hard the team will push him to start. They have Sam Bradford, who should improve after an entire offseason of work with the team after doing well in 2016 considering he parachuted in at the last minute. This is all worth watching, but don't be shocked if Bradford starts the season under center or if Bridgewater doesn't see the field this season.
