Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was cleared to return to practice after suffering a nasty knee injury in August of 2016. With no physical limitations holding him back, it was observed by rookie quarterback Kyle Sloter that Bridgewater looks to be back in normal form.

This is fantastic news. At several points during Bridgewater’s 14-month recovery process, it was speculated that he may never be healthy enough to play professional football again.

Clearly, Bridgewater has made tremendous strides and doesn’t look like a quarterback who has been sidelined for over a year.

Next, the Vikings will have some decisions to make. They have a three-week window to determine whether to add Bridgewater to the 53-man roster, or place him in injured reserve. Though, with quarterback Sam Bradford’s return in to action in question, the team may be leaning towards getting Bridgewater on their roster.

In the meantime, the Vikings will continue to lean on Case Keenum as the starter.
