A long time coming.
Teddy Bridgewater’s long road back to an NFL field is about to come to a fulfilling end.
The Minnesota Vikings are set to activate the 2014 first-round pick, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
Bridgewater has not played since the team’s Wild Card loss to the Seattle Seahawks in January 2016. He suffered a gruesome knee injury in training camp the following summer, which not only nearly ended his career but almost cost him his leg.
The former Louisville star has been back at practice for nearly a month.
Teddy Bridgewater will be activated to @Vikings 53-man roster and team is discussing whether Sam Bradford goes to IR, per team sources.

The Vikings are 6-2, with one of the top defensive units in football. The team has survived with backup Case Keenum at quarterback, as Sam Bradford has missed time with a knee injury of his own.
Can Bridgewater come back and spark the team? It would certainly be an awesome story.
