Teddy Bridgewater has a long way to go, but a video uploaded to Vine Wednesday afternoon shows some encouraging seconds of Bridgewater running through an agility drill.

Unfortunately the video and photos originally posted showing the workout have been removed. So you'll have to trust us when we say Bridgewater looked a little ginger while doing the ladder drill.

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is on record saying Sam Bradford deserves to go into training camp as the starting quarterback.

“I think Sam has played great this year. I think he’s earned the right to be the starting quarterback,” Zimmer said. “Right now, all I’m worried about is Teddy getting better. He comes in here every single day and busts his rear-end. I just want him to to better. We’ll worry about all those other things later.”

The only logical way Bradford isn't the 2017 starter is if Bridgewater is 100 percent recovered from his left knee injury and he blows Bradford away in training camp.

But ESPN's Ben Goessling notes that it seems likely the Vikings will exercise Bridgewater's fifth-year option, even though it will likely come with a price tag north of $11 million.

Bridgewater suffered a dislocated knee and torn ACL during a non-contact drill at practice on Aug. 30.
