A sloppy Sunday practice and Monday off day are all but forgotten after a newsworthy Minnesota Vikings practice this afternoon. Speculation ruled the airwaves, with fans and the media anxiously anticipating Teddy Bridgewater’s return to the field. Bridgewater wasn’t the only player to resume practices, though, as the Vikings welcomed a few needed names to the huddle on Tuesday.
Joining Bridgewater were Shaun Hill, Eric Kendricks, Sharrif Floyd, Matt Asiata, and Matt Kalil, as well as a tight end fighting to make his way onto the final 53-man roster. Rhett Ellison, who missed all of training camp while rehabbing a torn patellar tendon, was activated off the PUP list and returned to practice for the first time this offseason.
Xavier Rhodes, who left last week’s game with a hamstring injury, missed his third straight practice. Anthony Harris and Scott Crichton accompanied him on the sidelines with undisclosed injuries.
