Teddy Bridgewater had suffered a huge hit in week nine against Lamarcus Joyner of the St. Louis Rams.
The end result of the hit lead to Bridgewater being knocked out with a concussion which was caused by an elbow to the helmet during Bridgewater’s slide attempt.
Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said for any further update, Bridgewater would have to undergo concussion protocol in order to play in week 10 against Oakland.
On November 9, Teddy had passed all concussion protocol and was able to play Sunday’s game against the Raiders and started as well.
Bridgewater participated fully on Thursday November 12, with assistance making sure he wouldn’t pass out, or overdo anything that can cause a more serious injury.
During his absence for the remainder of the game against the Rams last week, backup quarterback Shaun Hill stepped in and led them to victory.
This week against the Raiders with Bridgewater back in, the Vikings came out on top 30-14. He went 14 of 22 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown as he threw for 63 percent.
Bridgewater looks to improve during practice this week as they take on Green Bay on November 22. He had a slight ankle injury during the game against Oakland, but nothing too serious, and should practice with no problem the whole week.
