Teddy Bridgewater's MRI Good News For Vikings

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

We've been waiting to hear about the results of the MRI on Teddy Bridgewater's left foot, and it sounds like the answer is one that Minnesota Vikings fans will be very happy with.

Bridgewater twisted his left foot attempting to dive into the end zone during the fourth quarter of Sunday's 41-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. He limped off the field and was eventually taken to the locker room for x-rays. The x-rays came back negative, indicating no broken bones, but the MRI could potentially show something else.

However, Mike Zimmer just announced at his press conference that Bridgewater's MRI came back "clean," and the team is hoping that he will be able to go on Thursday night in Green Bay. Zimmer also said during his press conference that Bridgewater is feeling much better today than he did after the game on Sunday.

Bridgewater is coming off what might be the most impressive first start for a rookie quarterback in team history. He completed 19-of-30 passes for 317 yards (a team record) and led six scoring drives in helping the Vikings get their record to 2-2 on the season.

With the short turn-around before the game in Green Bay, we'll probably have more of an idea of Bridgewater's "official" status in the next day or two.
