Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater passed his first concussion test and will likely play against the Oakland Raiders in Week 10, head coach Mike Zimmer told reporters Monday.

Bridgewater left Sunday’s 21–18 overtime win against the St. Louis Rams in the fourth quarter, after sustaining a hit to the head. 

With Minnesota ahead 18–15 early in the quarter, Bridgewater scrambled to the left to gain five yards. As he slid down, Rams safety Lamarcus Joyner delivered a hit to his helmet. Bridgewater laid down with his eyes closed before being helped off the field.

Joyner was flagged for unnecessary roughness on the play, and after the game, Zimmer called the hit cheap.

NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the league won’t suspend Joyner for the hit on Bridgewater, but he could face a fine.

The Vikings (6–2) will travel to face the Raiders (4–4) at O.co Coliseum on Sunday at 4:05 p.m. ET.
