Bridgewater doesn't practice again, status for Thursday remains unclear

Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater didn't practice on Tuesday, despite telling reporters that he continues to improve in advance of Thursday's Vikings-Packers game at Lambeau Field.

Earlier in the day the rookie said he wouldn't put a percentage on his chances of playing and he will do what's best for the team, according to Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press.

Bridgewater sprained his left ankle late in the fourth quarter of Minnesota's 41-28 victory over Atlanta on Sunday. The cause for concern grew when he was carted off the field into the locker room. A few minutes later he was carted back onto the field, where he was a spectator for the rest of the game.

On Monday, he seemed to hint that he would be capable of playing.

"It's going to be very difficult, but it's something that happened in college," Bridgewater said Monday, via ESPN. "When I was in college [in 2012], I got hurt on a Saturday and had the University of Rutgers on a short week, on a Thursday also. I think in this situation, I'm just going to have to put extra time in the training room, spend as much time as I can around the facility and in the training room, try to get ready for Thursday."

He also said "it will" be fun to play at Lambeau Field. Read into that all you want...

Greenway unlikely to play

Zimmer told reporters that outside linebacker Chad Greenway, the team's leading tackler five consecutive seasons, will not practice again today. He missed last week's game with a broken hand and broken rib, although the rib injury was the reason he was sidelined.

Defensive back Captain Munnerlyn missed Monday's practice with an illness. He revealed today that it was food poisoning.
