Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater sprained ankle on Sunday against the Falcons in his first career start. X-rays were negative, as Peter King of TheMMQB.com noted during Football Night in America.
Next up, an MRI.
Per a league source, the MRI is being conducted tonight. It’ll give the Vikings a clearer picture as to whether Bridgewater will be available when the Vikings face the Packers in only four nights, on Thursday Night Football.
Bridgewater completed 19 of 30 passes for 317 yards. He added 27 yards on the ground, including a 13-yard touchdown run.
If Bridgewater can’t play on Thursday night, Christian Ponder will get the start for the 2-2 Vikings. The Vikings have no other quarterbacks on the roster.
And it’s not as if plenty of experienced quarterbacks are hanging around right now.
