Teddy's back! Vikings activate Bridgewater, Bradford to IR

Vikings activate QB Teddy Bridgewater, move Sam Bradford to IR

Bradford underwent an arthroscopic procedure Tuesday in which Dr. James Andrews "cleaned up" his left knee but found no major damage, according to ESPN.

The Minnesota Vikings have taken quarterback Teddy Bridgewater off the physically unable to perform list, adding him to the active roster for the first time since he badly injured his left knee during practice more than 14 months ago.

After being activated from the team's reserve/PUP list, Bridgewater wasn't even limited in his first practice back.

It's unclear exactly what the nature of Bradford's injury is; in mid-September, it was reported that the Vikings believed he had a bone bruise, and with Andrews and team doctors deeming his knee stable, it remains a mystery, at least publicly, as to why he's been on the shelf for so long.

Case Keenum, who was been filling in for Bradford, will remain the starter when the Vikings visit the Washington Redskins on Sunday following the team's bye week. He was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list to start the season, before being cleared to return to practice on October 16.

Week 5 against the Chicago Bears is the last time quarterback Sam Bradford played in a game for the Minnesota Vikings. Bridgewater was rushed to a Level 1 trauma hospital out of fear that he could lose the lower part of his leg after dislocating his knee and tearing multiple ligaments, including the ACL.

The Vikings' 2014 first-round pick tore his ACL and dislocated the left knee during a late August practice past year.

A second second opinion portends an ominous situation for Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford.

Bradford came over from the Eagles previous year in a trade after Bridgewater's injury.
