The Minnesota Vikings got some good news, as an MRI came back negative on rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's left ankle.
Bridgewater sprained the ankle during Minnesota's 41-28 victory over Atlanta on Sunday. Bridgewater had a stellar first start, throwing for 317 yards and rushing for a touchdown. He was complimented on offense by running backs Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon, who gashed the Falcons repeatedly.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer addressed reporters about Bridgewater's MRI and said that there's a chance he could be ready for Thursday night's game against Green Bay.
After the game, Bridgewater claimed he'd be fine and ready to go for Thursday night against the Packers. He looked good against a poor Atlanta defense in Week 4, but the Pack present a much tougher challenge in Week 5. Bridgewater could make for a decent QB2 option this week if he's in the lineup. Reports say he did not practice Monday with Christian Ponder getting the first team reps.
