Zimmer: Teddy Bridgewater is 'trying to get ready to play'

Mike Zimmer Says Teddy Bridgewater Trying to Get Ready to Play After Knee Injury

If Bridgewater starts the season on the physically unable to perform list, he would be eligible to come off after six weeks.

"He's a really good athlete, and obviously he's got some extra value being able to be an extra back, but he's been good on getting to the linebackers and delivering a punch when he gets there", Zimmer said.

"But we're just trying to get the guys in there that can play, and I figure if we're playing 30 percent base, it's a chance to get him in the game more", the coach said.

"It was nice to have everybody out there for the first time", left guard Alex Boone said after Sunday's 32-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers at U.S. Bank Stadium.

"Everybody sees it, " McKinnon said. He's still being a team leader. "That's something I'm contemplating right now".

53 - Number of players the Vikings have to have on their roster by Saturday at 3 p.m. (CT). As for Tuesday, four didn't practice. If Rudolph's injury carries over to the regular season, the Vikings could end up keeping David Morgan, Carter and Bucky Hodges on the roster.

Also from practice: Datone Jones, Anthony Harris and Emmanuel Lamur all did not participate.

The Vikings have spent training camp weighing their options at center, giving both Nick Easton and Pat Elflein plenty of time with their first-team offense. In the battle to start at center between rookie Pat Elflein and Nick Easton, Zimmer told NBC sideline reporter Michele Tayofa at halftime Sunday he had made up his mind without naming the victor. As they conducted their final practice of the preseason Tuesday, it sounded as though the Vikings have concluded their competition. In 2015, Bridgewater had led the Vikings to their first division title since 2009 and had been selected to the Pro Bowl.

Zimmer loves third-year defensive end Danielle Hunter but said there's still one thing he must improve.

In what might have been the first and only time the starters will play together before the September 11 season opener, the presumed starting line got 15 snaps before coach Mike Zimmer started subbing players in.

Rashod Hill is in line to be the swing tackle, backing up starter Riley Reiff on the left and Mike Remmers on the right. "To me, that's the next step in the development". Zimmer said it doesn't matter which side Hill plays, "it's about being consistent with the things he's doing".
