On Tuesday afternoon The Minnesota Vikings posted a video that showed former Louisville Cardinal QB Teddy Bridgewater making what appears to be serious progress.
During a non-contact drill in the Vikings training camp last year Teddy suffered a complete tear to his ACL and other structural damage. Shortly after the injury, the Vikings said their starting quarterback is expected to make a full recovery, but reports later surfaced stating that there’s no way to know how he’ll recover or if he’ll ever be the same.
In late March a video surfaced on Twitter that showed Bridgewater dropping back and throwing. The video that the Vikings shared on Tuesday shows basically the same thing, but Bridgewater looks even more comfortable.

As you can see, Bridgewater is wearing a brace and a sleeve on the knee that was injured last summer. Vikings general manager Rick Spielman says Bridgewater has not been cleared to practice, but this is certainly a good sign.
