@Andrew_Krammer Sounds like Teddy Bridgewater got a handful of first-team reps today. Easing him in, seeing how things go on a pitch count
@christomasson #Vikings WR Adam Thielen on Teddy Bridgewater back: “(Looked) good. He’s the same old Teddy. It was fun to have him out there.''
@christomasson Kyle Rudolph on Teddy B practicing today: “I thought he looked like Joe Montana He was excited He was smiling, bringing energy to practice."
@christomasson #Vikings WR Adam Thielen said that Teddy Bridgewater has been in all the team meetings since the start of OTAs and that impresses him.
@christomasson Kyle Sloter on Teddy “He was getting some reps with the 1st team It looks like they’re trying to get him ready to play Case is the guy..now"
@christomasson #Vikings QB Kyle Sloter on Teddy Bridgewater: “I thought he looked great… From what I heard, he looked like the old Teddy.’’

We got 10 players dinged up. The list keeps growing.
4 starters didn't practice today.

Thats a lot of starters that are dinged up. Seems like Barr is on the list quite a bit. Good thing we have some LB depth.

Correction: Diggs was on the field but didn't practice. He probably doesn't play.

Excellent article. Thanks for posting.

They've also been money in the red zone.

Imagine if we had a healthy Floyd at DT.

Have we ever had a healthy Floyd for any amount of time?

#Vikings LB Anthony Barr wasn't fined for the hit that injured Aaron Rodgers -- but was fined $9,115 for head-butting Davante Adams.

I didn't see that. I hope that's not how he got a concussion...
