Teddy Bridgewater is predicted to be activated to the Vikings roster this week, which might give Minnesota choices underneath middle.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Bridgewater is predicted to come back off the bodily unable to carry out listing earlier than Wednesday’s deadline, in accordance with a supply knowledgeable of the state of affairs.
The Vikings, nonetheless, may follow Case Keenum at quarterback till he falters. According to Rapoport, we should not be stunned if Keenum retains the beginning gig. Minnesota is cautious of eradicating Keenum in favor of Bridgewater, who hasn’t performed a recreation since January 10, 2016.
Keenum has performed properly in the course of the Vikings’ four-game successful streak forward of their Week 9 bye. The 29-year-old is finishing 63.9 % of his pbades on the season and earned 6.9 yards per try, with seven touchdowns to 3 interceptions.
Keenum’s rapport with Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs ought to present confidence for the NFC North division leaders heading right into a Week 10 tilt at Washington.
Sticking with Keenum would give Bridgewater extra time to get again right into a groove after the devastating knee harm worn out all of 2016 and had some questioning whether or not the previous first-round decide would ever play once more within the NFL.
With Bridgewater set to come back off the PUP listing, the Vikings could have a call to make on their QB depth chart. Minnesota at present has Keenum, Sam Bradford, and rookie Kyle Sloter on the roster. Adding Bridgewater to the combo would seemingly necessitate a transfer.
Bradford, who has missed six video games and remains to be coping with a knee concern, could possibly be the odd man out. Rapoport reported, nonetheless, no resolution has been made whether or not to close down the staff’s opening-day starter.
