The Packers have a short turnaround to prepare for the Vikings on Thursday night.
So they’re not going to waste much time game-planning as if Christian Ponder might play.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he’s working with the assumption that rookie Teddy Bridgewater will be back, after leaving with a sprained ankle last week.
“I would think he’s going to play,” McCarthy said, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “My family taped the game for me, so when I got home last night I watched the TV copy. I thought he played well, and watched the game on the coaches’ copy this morning and was told he feels pretty good. The tests were negative. We’ll plan for Bridgewater.”
All the tests on the Vikings quarterback were negative, but he was held out of practice Monday.
