Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater expected to start Thursday vs. Packers
The rookie was carted off the field on Sunday after injuring his ankle injury during the Vikings' 41-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. In the game -- Bridgewater's first career NFL start -- the quarterback completed 19-of-30 passes for 317 yards. He also rushed for 27 yards and a touchdown.
Zimmer said Bridgewater is doing "a lot better" today and the MRI he had Sunday came back clean.
After the game, Bridgewater told NFL Network he had sprained his ankle.
Bridgewater was the 32nd overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft. The Vikings are 2-2 this season.
