The Minnesota Vikings will be giving their keys to their franchise back to their first round draft pick. Teddy Bridgewater has said that he’s 100 percent healthy now.

He has been dealing with a minor sprained ankle, and he sat last week, because the team was on a short week. The team was dismantled by the Green Bay Packers, 42-10, on Thursday Night Football.

First-year head coach Mike Zimmer believed Bridgewater could have played last week if the team had a regular week. In addition, the franchise signal-caller is expected to start this Sunday against the Detroit Lions.

The 21-year-old played in two games this season. He has gone 31 of 50 for 467 yards, including one 300 yard passing game. In addition, he has contributed 11 rushing yards for 54 yards and a touchdown.
