We're a month and a half from the one-year anniversary of Teddy Bridgewater's gruesome knee injury and nobody outside of the Vikings knows, or will publicly say, what the plans for Bridgewater are.

But on Wednesday Bridgewater posted pictures of himself without a knee brace during a workout in the rain.

The trio of photos are the first of Bridgewater without a big brace on his left leg during workouts. Still, the photos don't tell any part of the story about his current or future status with the Vikings. All we know is that Bridgewater joined the team for some passing drills during organized team activities and mandatory minicamp, which the Vikings said was part of his rehab and that he still hadn't been cleared to practice.

“He did do some drop backs yesterday and was throwing the ball,” Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman said May 24. “Again, very limited on what he’s able to do at this point but it’s progress.”

It's been nearly two months since Spielman provided the update and it'll likely be another two weeks before Spielman gives another status report on his quarterback when the Vikings report to training camp the week of July 23.
