Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater: Return this season not ruled out

Bridgewater (knee) stands a chance of being cleared to return at some point during the upcoming season, Matt Vensel of the Star Tribune reports.

Bridgewater still has a long way to go to return from last year's catastrophic knee injury, but being cleared to throw passes to teammates and participate in individual drills has encouraged many with his progress. While he still can't go through team drills, run full speed, plant or cut on his left leg, or absorb contract to his knee, Bridgewater's 2017 campaign hasn't been written off yet. Without a timetable for Bridgewater's return, though, Sam Bradford will remain Minnesota's starter for the foreseeable future.
