The Minnesota Vikings have had trouble remaining consistent under center thus far into the 2017-18 campaign. While expected to feature at least three different quarterbacks before all is said and done, the Vikings most recently welcomed back the injured Teddy Bridgewater, who was notably cleared to return to practice earlier in the week.

“We still don’t know where it’s going to go, where that’s going to lead to,” Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said, via TwinCities.com. “But I think everybody feels good for him because they know what kind of kid he is and how hard he’s worked.

“He’s probably not going to play this week, so we need to put the brakes on things a little bit.”

As a result of his now infamous return, Bridgewater has continued to receive some early praise from his Vikings teammates.

“I thought he looked like Joe Montana,’’ said Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph. “He was excited. He was smiling, bringing energy to practice.’’
