The Minnesota Vikings have mostly kept Teddy Bridgewater’s recovery from a severe knee injury under wraps since he went down in practice last August. But on the first day of OTAs, the team’s official twitter account released video of Bridgewater throwing and taking drop backs – with his knee covered by a large brace.

Earlier this offseason the Vikings declined Bridgwater’s fifth-year option, though he could have his contract roll to next year if he stays on the PUP list for the first six weeks of 2017.
Bridgewater’s progress will be closely monitored throughout the season as current starter Sam Bradford’s contract runs out at the end of this year.
