Teddy Bridgewater set for limited practice Thursday

Dolphins quarterback Teddy Bridgewater worked on the side with trainers at Wednesday’s practice and he’s set to take another step back toward being cleared from the concussion protocol.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Bridgewater is set to take part in practice on a limited basis on Thursday. Going through that practice is the next phase of the protocol and Bridgewater will be on track to being cleared ahead of Sunday’s game against the Vikings if all goes well.

Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said on Wednesday that the Dolphins plan to start Skylar Thompson at quarterback this weekend. If Bridgewater is cleared, he is expected to serve as the backup.

Bridgewater did not report concussion symptoms during or after last Sunday’s loss,  but is going through the protocol because a spotter found him to be unstable after a hit by Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner and the changes made to the protocol as a result of the handling of Bridgewater’s teammate Tua Tagovailoa called for Bridgewater to be subject to its guidelines for returning to play.

Tagovailoa is also making his way through the protocol and practiced as a limited participant on Wednesday. He will not play this weekend.

  1. I’d still like to see the film of Teddy appearing “unstable.”

    Good Luck Skylar, LIGHT ‘EM UP!

    Miami cheating…They’re doing this to clear Tua to try to sneak it through.


    The irony of a Pats fan constantly crying about cheating…

  3. If Teddy didn’t sustain a concussion how is he not clearing the concussion protocol? This makes no sense.

  4. An unaccountable spotter in the press box gets to determine that the starting quarterback has to leave the game after one play, and that carries on into the next week to affect his availability for the next game. Does the NFL really want someone who thought he saw a quarterback “stumble” to have the power to remove that quarterback from two games?

  5. So why can’t Teddy start on Sunday? And don’t give me “he hasn’t practiced all week”. Your backup should start over a rookie late round pick. But I guess we are to believe the Dolphins, again, when they tell us their QB was never concussed.

  6. Any other game but this I would be rooting for TEDDY to get in and do real well. I suspect TEDDY will start the second drive.
