Teddy Bridgewater cleared to return to practice

Finally some good news.

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Minnesota Vikings Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time since the summer of 2016, Teddy Bridgewater has been cleared to return to practice.

Bridgewater, who was coming off a Pro Bowl season in his second year as an NFL QB, dislocated his left knee and tore multiple ligaments during a practice on Aug. 30, 2016. He has not practiced or played since, but it appears that’s about to change.

This news means Bridgewater will likely be taken off the Physically Unable to Perform list. Once that happens, Minnesota will have a 21-day window in which they can either activate him or place him on injured reserve.

With Sam Bradford now dealing with a knee injury, the possibility of seeing Teddy back on the field in 2017 suddenly seems real.

All the best to Teddy.
