Vikings might shut down Sam Bradford to make room for Teddy Bridgewater

And Bridgewater, who hasn't played since suffering a torn ACL in August 2016, was elevated from the physically unable to perform list Wednesday, the last day the Vikings could do so.

The Vikings faced a deadline on Wednesday at the end of the three-week window that opened when Bridgewater resumed practice with the team.

Case Keenum, who was been filling in for Bradford, will remain the starter when the Vikings visit the Washington Redskins on Sunday following the team's bye week. "Hopefully we'll be able to get him back when he gets healthy". "So we just keep going from there and see how this thing plays out".

Teddy Bridgewater has officially been added to the Minnesota Vikings active roster for the first time in 15 months, marking a significant step forward for the young quarterback.

It is unclear if or when the Vikings will turn to Bridgewater.

In a vacuum, Bridgewater is the better quarterback - he has a solid, accurate arm and is a mobile threat to both find space in the pocket and pick up the first down with his legs, making him a tough matchup for opposing defenses.

"I'm going to be boring and give you the same answer", Keenum said.

Whenever Bridgewater becomes more comfortable, he could reclaim his old starting job.

"He's done excellent", Zimmer said of Bridgewater's practice performance. He's completed 63.9 percent of his passes and thrown seven touchdowns to just three interceptions.

Griffen stretched with the team at the start of practice Wednesday, wearing a stocking cap rather than a helmet.
