Teddy Bridgewater a full participant at practice

Both Eric Kendricks and Anthony Barr were held out of practice Thursday, as the Minnesota Vikings injury report is littered with defensive injuries. On offense, there’s good news -- Teddy Bridgewater was a full participant at practice. But that doesn’t mean he is through with the NFL's concussion protocol.

Bridgewater’s teammates say he seems to be the same old Teddy, and it's a huge relief to get their quarterback back on the practice field after Sunday's scary hit by the Rams’ LaMarcus Joyner.

All of the guys on offense echo the same thing -- they have full confidence in backup quarterback Shaun Hill, but obviously they want their starter back.

Bridgewater continues to go through the NFL concussion protocol. Provided he doesn't have a setback, hopefully he can be cleared for Sunday against the Oakland Raiders.
