After 15 months from dislocating his knee, the Minnesota Vikings have activated quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. He returns to an improved offense, with a revamped offensive line, and a wide receiver group who are performing well. Bridgewater will back up Case Keenum against the Washington Redskins, but the hope is Bridgewater will take back the starting job.
Conversely the Vikings also placed quarterback Sam Bradford on Injured Reserved. Bradford played one game this season against the New Orleans Saints, in a fantastic performance. Bradford had knee problems shortly after, and was shut down for several weeks. Bradford tried to return to action against Chicago, but his ailing knee forced him to the bench.
The Vikings are in first place in the division, and having competent quarterback play will help them for a playoff push.
