On Teddy Bridgewater post-exam today: Vikings will activate him this week or next week. They expect him to play this year. Amazing recovery.
Related players: Case Keenum, Sam Bradford
This updates a story we had earlier today. This is a little more definitive in terms of the team activating him and expecting him to play this season. The Vikes will have three weeks after he practices to make a decision, which Week 10 after the Week 9 bye seems to add up right now. Like the previous story said, no one will have an idea how Bridgewater will respond to a hit until a game situation, but it's looking like the Vikes are thinking he's going to play at some point this year.

Week 6 vs. Green Bay Packers
The quarterback carousel continues in Minnesota as Case Keenum is expected back under center this week. Sam Bradford started last week's game against the Bears, but didn't look healthy enough and was eventually benched. In his absence, Keenum threw for 140 yards with 1 touchdown.
Outside of the game versus a depleted Bucs defense, Keenum hasn't done a lot with his playing time this season. He could struggle again this week in a somewhat difficult matchup against the Packers. Green Bay has only allowed two multi-touchdown games against quarterbacks this season, and have held all passers under 260 yards this season.
Keenum is a middle-of-the-road option at QB this week. He'll be a somewhat safe choice, but unlikely to have a big performance.
