Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater suffered a gruesome injury last year that kept him off of the field for the entire 2016-17 NFL season.
Bridgewater suffered a torn ACL and dislocated knee during a practice and he has spent his time working overtime to make his way back to the field. Unfortunately, it seems like he still has some time until he is ready to test out his repaired knee.
According to a report from Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer believes Bridgewater will open training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.
“I think so, but again I haven’t seen him,” Zimmer said.
Placing Bridgewater on the PUP list gives Minnesota some extra flexibility.
If the quarterback is healthy enough to contribute throughout training camp or the preseason, he can be activated at any time. If he remains on the PUP list to start the regular season, however, he would be forced to miss the first six weeks of the year.
Regardless of when he is activated, Vikings fans will be excited to see their promising young signal-caller returning to action.
