Bridgewater dodges nearly every question about his shoulder


Teddy Bridgewater isn't giving in when reporters beg him for answers about his health.

Bridgewater returned to throwing at practice on Tuesday, but he didn't throw the ball down the field leaving many wondering if the Vikings were just easing him back from the sore shoulder ESPN reported that Bridgewater had.

The questions a smiling Bridgewater deflected to head coach Mike Zimmer included:

  • Was there a set plan this week to limit your throwing?
  • Was your shoulder sore last week?
  • Can you do everything you need to do physically?
  • Do you lobby with Zimmer to let you play?

Bridgewater did say "of course" when asked if he expects to play this Sunday against San Diego and that he feels "very good."
