He was clutch in relief of Bradford against the Bears, completing 17 of 21 passes with a touchdown and a passer rating of 110.3 in a little more than a half of football. He spent a whole bunch of his own money trying everything to get back and it just didn't work out.
Bridgewater suffered a serious knee injury during a practice, in August 2016, that put him on the sidelines.
Per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer didn't rule out Bradford returning in the playoffs.
Mortensen says Andrews had previously shared that Bradford's knee is structurally sound, and nothing he saw during Tuesday's procedure would indicate anything different.
Keenum has already been announced the Vikings starter on Sunday against the Redskins, but moving forward it's possible Minnesota decides to hand the reigns back to Teddy Two-Gloves whenever he's ready to go.
ESPN reported that Bradford visited Dr. James Andrews in Florida on Tuesday to have his ailing left knee reevaluated. Nothing else was working, and we just had to try something.
Bradford saw Andrews on September 22, but it was determined then that surgery was not needed. The quarterback's contract with the team ends at the conclusion of the 2017 season and he will be a free-agent during the upcoming offseason. "So we just keep going from there and see how this thing plays out".
"It's disappointing", Zimmer said.
"He hasn't had training camp", Zimmer said. "He's moved well, thrown the ball well".
