Just seven months ago some people were saying Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater might never play in the NFL again.

Back then CBS Sports reported, “As one doctor who’s worked with NFL teams said this week, ‘If he didn’t make it back, it wouldn’t surprise me. This is a bad injury, about the worse knee injury a player can have.'”

That diagnosis was very understandable considering when Bridgewater’s injury was first reported it was reported that if not for the top work done by the team’s trainers he could have lost his leg.

Bridgewater, however, seemed very determined to come back following the injury, saying, “In order to have a testimony, you have to have a test. I come from amazing DNA, I watched my mom fight and win against breast cancer. We will, as a team, attack my rehab with the same vigor and energy. My faith is strong, my faith is unwavering and my vision is clear. My purpose will not be denied.”

And now it appears that he is a man of his word as just this week Bridgewater was spotted on the practice field throwing passes at the Vikings’ OTAs.

That, right there, is pretty darn impressive.

While there is no guarantee Bridgewater will be back for the start of the NFL season, or even play at all this year, just the fact that he has made it back this far so quickly is a huge win for him.
