Vikings’ Bridgewater Says He Feels 100 Percent Healthy
EDEN PRAIRIE (AP) — One of Teddy Bridgewater's goals is to make his absence from the field last week a one-game blip.
The Minnesota Vikings sure missed their rookie quarterback in the 42-10 loss at Green Bay, but Bridgewater is back on track this week and ready to return Sunday against Detroit. He said Wednesday he feels 100 percent healthy after spraining his left ankle in his first NFL start Sept. 28 against Atlanta.
Bridgewater said he doesn't think he has to prove anything about his durability. But he acknowledged his desire for career longevity, to be the starter "for 10-plus years."
