Vikings HC Mike Zimmer mentioned that they won’t activate QB Teddy Bridgewater from the PUP list until he’s ready to play.

“No, he won’t come off the PUP list,” Zimmer said, via “He’s going to practice, but he has 21 days and he’ll stay on the PUP list until he’s ready to play.

We’ll take it one day at a time just like we did for the last 14 months,” Zimmer said. “… He hasn’t practiced in 14 months, we’re not going to dose him out tomorrow or Wednesday.”

  • Zimmer said he doesn’t know if QB Sam Bradford will practice Wednesday, but he’s feeling “pretty good.” (Chris Tomasson)
