Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater made his first visit to Vikings practice since undergoing surgery to repair his left knee last week.

Bridgewater is out for the season since he tore his ACL and dislocated his knee during a non-contact injury on Aug. 31.

According to ESPN, Bridgewater was at the facility with his advisor Abe Elam.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer told the Pioneer Press Bridgewater was in the training room chatting with some players. All indications are the quarterback remains in good spirits since the injury.

"I just stopped in and said hi to him," Zimmer told the newspaper. "He's good. He was laughing and joking around."

The Vikings beat Tennessee to open the season with Shaun Hill starting at quarterback last week. They will play their home opener at U.S. Bank Stadium Sunday night and have not announced who will get the start at quarterback.
