“I just want to see where he’s at,” head coach Mike Zimmer said Monday. “How he’s moving, things like that. I hear he’s moving good. I hear he’s throwing the ball good. But that’s all I do is hear. We’ll just go about it and see how it goes.”

Bradford’s return to practice doesn’t mean he’s on track to play anytime soon. The Vikings would still need to activate him off injured reserve and they’ve already got two healthier quarterbacks ahead of him on the depth chart in starter Case Keenum and backup Teddy Bridgewater.
