Teddy Bridgewater was cleared to return to Minnesota Vikings practice this week 14 months after suffering a horrific knee injury. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer on Wednesday tried to temper any expectations related to Bridgewater’s remarkable return by opting to “put the brakes” on any speculation on how things would play out in the coming weeks.

Bridgewater not only was cleared to practice, a report surfaced Wednesday that the quarterback will have “no limitations” moving forward.

Zimmer also cautioned against any belief that even the Vikings know what to expect out of Bridgewater after such an extended absence.

Bridgewater, Zimmer said, must prove one things above all else before taking any semblance of a next step.
