Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater injured his ankle in a victory over the Atlanta Falcons, but the MRI has come back negative.
The Minnesota Vikings played their first game with rookie Teddy Bridgewater as a full-time starting quarterback, and he looked impressive while leading them to a 41-27 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
However, the quarterback suffered an ankle injury toward the end of the game and was taken out of it. This was unfortunate for the Vikings since they are scheduled to face the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night, giving the team less time to rest.
Luckily for the Vikings, Bridgewater’s MRI came back negative, and they are optimistic that he can return to the field on Thursday. This will be a huge relief for the Vikings offense, which has been able to move on without running back Adrian Peterson.
Here is a tweet from the official SportsCenter Twitter account.
