Monday's day off for the players was accompanied by relatively good news for Bridgewater. He's cleared the first step of the NFL's concussion protocol, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.
"He passed his first test, so he should be good to go, I think," Zimmer said of Bridgewater. "He hasn't passed all of his tests yet, but he's passed one."
We're still early in the game but it's at least positive news. There are still more steps to clear, of course, before Bridgewater can return to practice.
