Bridgewater is still sidelined after dislocating his knee and tearing the ACL in practice on August 30, 2016. He has posted videos of himself dropping back and throwing the ball in March and running agility drills in May of 2017. 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."

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 meets with doctor (Wed May 24, 05:09 PM) - Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) recently had a positive meeting with his doctors and has received clearance to progress in his rehab and start moving from side-to-side.

Our View: Bridgewater was dropping back and throwing in drills this week for the Vikings. It seems like he's making good progress as he comes back from the horrific knee injury that eliminated his entire 2016 season. Even in a best case scenario, Bridgewater is likely to only be a reserve behind Sam Bradford.
