Vikings' QB Bridgewater to practice this week

(TSX / STATS) -- EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers are tied atop the NFC North, but for the first time in a quarter century or so, it's the Vikings who are stronger at quarterback.

On Monday, as the Packers were dealing with Aaron Rodgers' possible season-ending broken right collarbone, Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer announced that former starter Teddy Bridgewater will begin practicing after nearly 14 months of rehab following his horrific left knee injury suffered a week before the 2016 season.

"It's great," Zimmer said the day after the Vikings knocked Rodgers out of the game midway through the first quarter of a 23-10 victory at U.S. Bank Stadium. "He's worked extremely hard - obviously not only him, the training staff, the doctors, (strength and conditioning coach) Mark Uyeyama, all those guys have done a great job with him, trying to rehab him and get him ready to practice. It's a great deal for Teddy, and we'll take it one day at a time, just like we have the last 14 months."
