Reports: Vikings believe Bridgewater will be ready to go after Week 6

Bridgewater is on the PUP list through Week 6, then anything is possible.

Lost in the shuffle of Sunday's Sam Bradford injury news were a couple of good news reports on Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. 

In the second half of the video below, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says: "I'm told, while he is on the PUP list right now, he is expecting a midseason return. He will be healthy enough for a midseason return."

That report was later seconded by Jay Glazer on Fox Sports. 

According to NFL.com, once removed from the PUP list (after Week 6), the Vikings would have three weeks to activate him or put him back on the PUP list for the rest of the season.
