Spielman Says Bridgewater’s Status Still Being Determined

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman says the organization has not yet determined whether to activate quarterback Teddy Bridgewater from the physically unable to perform list next week.

Spielman told reporters that Bridgewater will be evaluated again following practice on Monday. Spielman will discuss the situation with coach Mike Zimmer, the medical staff and Bridgewater’s surgeon before a final call is made.

The deadline for adding Bridgewater to the 53-man roster is Wednesday, the end of the 21-day window that opened when he rejoined the team for practice on Oct. 18.

Bridgewater suffered the dislocation and ligament tears in his left knee in practice on Aug. 30, 2016.

Case Keenum took over at quarterback after Sam Bradford experienced left knee trouble following the season opener.
