Teddy Bridgewater has been placed on the PUP list.

It's been over a year since Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater went down with a devastating knee injury.

In the days following the injury, it was unclear if Bridgewater would ever play in the NFL again, and while the outlook is now optimistic, he's still going to have to wait at least a few more weeks before he can potentially take the field.

According to Ian Rapoport, Bridgewater will remain on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list as we enter the NFL season.

So while Bridgewater will be out for at least the first six weeks of the season, it's encouraging that the Vikings haven't ruled out playing him this year.

The Vikings will also have an interesting decision to make at the quarterback position moving forward.

Bridgewater is under contract for next season, while starting QB Sam Bradford's contract is up after this year. Whether they decide to let Bradford walk or not will likely depend on the health of Bridgewater.
