Coach Zimmer Expects Bridgewater to Play Against Oakland
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has passed his first post-concussion test.
Coach Mike Zimmer said Monday he believes Bridgewater "will be good to go" when the Vikings play at Oakland this weekend.
Bridgewater's injury occurred in the fourth quarter Sunday when St. Louis cornerback Lamarcus Joyner hit him with his shoulder, causing his head to bounce off the turf. Bridgewater didn't return to the game, but he was in good spirits afterward as he greeted his teammates coming off the field with a victory.
Zimmer said cornerback Terence Newman has also passed his first post-concussion test after a head injury forced him out of the game Sunday. Linebacker Anthony Barr had X-rays for an injury to his left arm, but Zimmer said he should be fine.
