LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It's been a long, quiet period for Teddy Bridgewater since dropping out of the spotlight following his catastrophic knee injury in the 2016 preseason.

There have been murmurs that he would never return to football, or that he might have to sit out the upcoming season, as well. Through all of that, Bridgewater has granted no interviews.

Earlier this week, Minnesota Vikings general manger general manager Rick Spielman, from the NFL's annual meeting in Phoenix, told The Minneapolis Star Tribune, "As far as a timeline, I know he was in last week and continuing to rehab with our medical staff and (Vikings trainer) Eric Sugarman. I can tell you there is no one I've seen other than Adrian (Peterson) when he came back from his ACL that has worked as hard as Teddy is working. And this is more significant than just an ACL."

Bridgewater backed that up a bit himself when he posted the following video on his private Instagram account.

Spielman said of Bridgewater, "Teddy is incredible with the attitude and work ethic that he's put in to get back on the field as quickly as we can."

That, of course, is no surprise. Given the dearth of news on Bridgewater, it's good to see him back on the field again, even in a limited way. Clearly, he has a ways to go. He's wearing a heavy brace on his left leg. 

The team has given no timeline for his recovery. No one, really, has spoken much at all about the injury in an official capacity since the weeks after it happened.

But at this point, his fans will take any progress they can get, and seeing him flash across the screen and throw a pass is the most positive news they've seen in a while.
