Teddy Bridgewater throws with teammates as rehab continues

He’s still far from being cleared to practice, but Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater continues to do more and more.

According to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Bridgewater was throwing with the other quarterbacks during individual drills as he continues his rehab from last year’s knee injury.

And while the healthy ones resumed practicing, Bridgewater was on the side without with athletic trainers, taking drops while attached to a resistance band. It was the first time he’s been spotted on the field by the media since Aug. 30, when he suffered a dislocated knee and torn ACL during practice.

“He’s one of the leaders in our locker room, so having him out here is definitely motivation to everybody,” Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs said. “It’s inspiring to see a guy back out here giving it everything he’s got, rehabbing and training real hard. Seeing him out here is definitely an added inspiration.”

Bridgewater hasn’t spoken to reporters since the injury, and there’s still no timetable for his return.

But every step he takes is one in the right direction.

    Meanwhile, people in Wisconsin are googling how to spell Wisconsin.

    He sounds very determined. Hope he makes it back all the way, either with the Vikings or somebody else. Good story.

    The guy needs to hang it up before he is irreparably injured for life.

    Good Luck Teddy, A great teammate, and for the multitude of TROLLS that comment on more Vikings stories than their own team, (usually from Green Bay)… Go Sexually Penetrate Yourselves!

    really hope he’s able to get back on the field. that being said I don’t think he’ll ever be better than a middle of the pack QB

    Seems to be taking a LONG time to recover… What gives?

  7. myspaceyourface says: Jun 1, 2017 9:39 AM

    One of the good guys.
    Hope he makes a full recovery.

    If, and it’s still a big if, Bridgewater comes all the way back and unseats Bradford in camp, where would you rank the Bradford deal among “Worst trades of all-time”?

    And everyone, including you Florio, was certain this guy would never play again. Keep up the hard work teddy!

    Rehab is one thing, but avoiding pass rushers with absurd speed is a whole different paradigm. Hope he doesn’t try to come back too soon and end his career with a worse injury.

    Teddy! Teddy! Teddy!

  12. blowfishes says: Jun 1, 2017 10:19 AM

    Can’t help but like this kid!

    Hope the rehab continues to go well.

    So the façade continues. These phonies so called “concern” for teddy is as empty as their trophy case. When the time comes, they’ll toss him in the dumpster quicker than a rotting piece of Lutefisk. Has anyone taken note on what they did to AP?

  14. filthymcnasty3 says: Jun 1, 2017 10:59 AM

    I wonder if Teddy bumped into Michael Floyd in rehab?

  15. h0metownzero says: Jun 1, 2017 11:02 AM

    Great kid. I sure hope that no more of his appendages fall off.

  16. floriosnuts says: Jun 1, 2017 11:12 AM

    It’s just crazy that he got so badly hurt at a practice. Just nuts. What a freakishly rough injury. Could happen to anybody I suppose.

    You mean sticking w/all day throughout all his off the field issues?
    Nice try, Sucka.

    Bless his heart

  20. truthbetold109 says: Jun 1, 2017 12:26 PM

    I genuinely like Teddy and wish him well.

    If he does make it back I hope he plays well. If not, the vikings trolls may terrorize his family like they to Christian Ponders pregnant wife. The woman said she was afraid to leave her house and doesn’t remember her time in Minny fondly.

    @mikejune

    Tied with the Herschel Walker trade.

  22. wafflestomp says: Jun 1, 2017 1:23 PM

    I sincerely hope Teddy makes a full recovery and regains his starter status in Minnesota for years to come.
    Almost as much as I hope the Spielman/Zimmer combo lasts as long as humanly possible.

    Hey, Teddy
    Hey, Teddy
    Don’t you want to come to my OTA?

    What did we do to AP? The only people who turned against AP are those who didn’t like his child abuse. Are you saying Minnesotans are phonies because we don’t approve of beating children in today’s age? Well now we know what kind of person you are.

    Meanwhile you continue making blanket statements about the people here whom you’ve never met and know nothing about while you yourself have nothing positive to say about Teddy. Seems like you have a daily habit of saying stupid things.

    Nowhere near as bad as the John Hadl trade.

    The Vikings have told him they were not going to extend his contract. Remember they said the same thing to Corderryl?
    He is working to be a backup for someone else. After this season he is done in minny
    They have their QB for the next 8 years in Bradford.
