Mike Zimmer on Teddy Bridgewater's knee: Vikings' doctors saw a problem

ORLANDO, Fla. — Vikings coach Mike Zimmer on Tuesday mourned Teddy Bridgewater’s free-agent departure like it was a death in the family, revealing how the team moved on from its former franchise quarterback because he had not fully recovered from his devastating August 2016 knee injury.

Addressing media at the NFL owners meeting, Zimmer said Bridgewater appeared to be progressing when he returned to practice in October, enough for the head coach to have the quarterback back up starter Case Keenum the final eight weeks of the 2017 season.
