Vikings Injury Update: Teddy Bridgewater misses practice


By on 9/30/2014 10:00:00 AM

In the Minnesota Vikings first practice in preparation for Thursday night's divisional match up with the Green Bay Packers, newly appointed quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was not able to participate. As reported by Pro Football Talk, many teams do not actually practice on Monday during a short week, but it appears the Vikings did.



Bridgewater, a first round pick in the 2014, assumed the starting duties this week after Matt Cassel was lost for the season in week three. He played exceptionally well Sunday in the Vikings victory over the Atlanta Falcons, but had to leave late in the game after he injured his left ankle. X-rays and an MRI came back negative so he is dealing with a sprain, which is good news. The bad news is he has just a handful of days to prepare for the Packers on Thursday night.

With two more days of prep and recovery before the game, Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer is hopeful that Bridgewater will be good to go Thursday and said he felt a lot better on Monday, according to USA Today. If he is unable to play, Christian Ponder will be forced into action against the Packers.
