On Sunday, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was knocked unconscious after taking a shoulder to the head from St. Louis Rams defensive back Lamarcus Joyner.
It was a frightening scene, but there is some positive news for the Vikings.
According to a report from Pro Football Talk, Bridgewater passed his first concussion test on Monday and appears to be on track to play for this coming weekend’s game against the Oakland Raiders.
“I think he will be ready to go,” head coach Mike Zimmer said.
Providing further positive news, Zimmer also stated that Bridgewater could return to practice as soon as Wednesday if he is able to avoid further headaches.
