Vikings make it official, activate Teddy Bridgewater, put Sam Bradford on IR

Vikings to activate Bridgewater after year and a half Report: Bridgewater to be activated, Bradford may end up on IR

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is back on the team's active roster after a 15-month absence.

One of the biggest roster moves in the National Football League was made on Wednesday when the Minnesota Vikings activated quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and sent Sam Bradford to injured reserve.

Bridgewater was placed on the PUP list to start the season, and he returned to practice October 18, the first day he was eligible.

But given the play of Case Keenum and the potential rust on Bridgewater's game, the Vikings are only a few poorly timed losses away from having to make some uncomfortable decisions.

Zimmer said "no one knows" when asked if Bradford will play again.

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. "So hopefully we'll be able to get him back when he gets healthy". "So we just keep going from there and see how this thing plays out".

Keenum replaced Bradford in the Bears game and led Minnesota to a 20-17 victory, and he's won each of his four starts since then.

It is unclear if or when the Vikings will turn to Bridgewater.

"I'm going to be boring and give you the same answer", Keenum said. "He's moved well, thrown the ball well, good accuracy".

Whenever Bridgewater becomes more comfortable, he could reclaim his old starting job.

The Vikings believe another team would pick up Sloter if they waived him in an attempt to get him on the practice squad.
