During Wednesday's NFC coaches breakfast at the Annual League Meeting, coach Mike Zimmer was asked by The Minnesota Star Tribune how Bridgewater might be handling the prospect of not having a future with the Vikings.
"I'm sure he knows he'll play somewhere, if not in Minnesota," Zimmer said.
He added: "The biggest thing again is just trying to get (Bridgewater) healthy and go from there. I want Teddy. I don't want him going somewhere else."
When asked Wednesday if he thinks Bridgewater will ever be able to play again, Zimmer replied: "I honestly have no idea."
Bradford's current contract is up after this year and the team has until May to decide on exercising a fifth-year club option on Bridgewater.
"There really is no other plan (for the future at quarterback) until Teddy gets healthy," Zimmer told The Star Tribune. "It's when he gets healthy, we'll worry about it. We don't know when it's going to be. If he comes in tomorrow and is 100 percent, which he won't, but if he did, then we'd have to adjust things. But right now we don't know when he's going to be ready."
