Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater went 670 days without dressing for an NFL game. That streak came to an end Sunday when the he was back on the sideline for the Vikings game against the Washington Redskins.
Bridgewater has been out for more than a year after he dislocated his left knee and torn multiple ligaments in his left knee during the 2016 preseason. There was even some doubt that he would ever play football again.
But on Sunday Bridgewater made his long-awaited return from the devastating injury and become very emotional on the sideline, as he wipe away tears of joy before his first game back.

Bridgewater will take on a backup role to Case Keenum on Sunday, but head coach Mike Zimmer will likely want to see how Bridgewater reacts to live snaps at some point this season.
