Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is questionable for Thursday night’s game at Lambeau Field with a sprained ankle, but several reports indicate that he is not likely to play.
The rookie, who sprained his left ankle on a fourth-quarter run Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons, said Tuesday he’s “much further ahead” of where he was after Sunday’s game, adding that his ankle feels “pretty good.”
ESPN’s Adam Schefter says the signs are pointing to Bridgewater not playing.
Mike Zimmer said in a radio interview Wednesday that the Vikings would give themselves until Thursday on a Bridgewater decision.
“We will see how Teddy Bridgewater is doing tomorrow,” Zimmer said in the interview. “It’s a long season, so we don’t want to put him at risk.”
If Bridgewater is unable to start, Christian Ponder would make his first start of the year against the Packers.
