Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has been cleared to return to practice, coach Mike Zimmer announced Monday.
Bridgewater has been sidelined since August 2016, when he dislocated his knee on a non-contact play in practice. Dr. Dan Cooper, who performed surgery on Bridgewater’s knee after the injury, reportedly cleared him to begin practice on Wednesday.
The Vikings now need to decide of they will take Bridgewater off the PUP list, which means there will be a three-week period where they assess if he will be promoted to the active roster or placed on injured reserve.
For now, Case Keenum is expected to retain starting duties, with former starter Sam Bradford continuing to recover from a bone bruise in his left knee.

Titans kicker Ryan Succop kept the Titans in the game amid their early offensive struggles with five field goals. Succop also broke the NFL record for consecutive field goals under 50 yards with his first field goal of the game. The mark is now 47 in a row.
