The Vikings returned to the practice field Wednesday with one quarterback up and a handful of starters still down.
Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater rejoined his Vikings teammates on the practice field for the first time in nearly 14 months, starting the 21-day window in which the Vikings have to evaluate him before needing to activate or stash him on injured reserve.

However, five players were not practicing at the start of Wednesday’s session open to reporters: quarterback Sam Bradford (knee), receiver Stefon Diggs (groin), linebacker Anthony Barr (concussion/ankle), receiver Michael Floyd (hamstring) and guard Nick Easton (calf). Barr is in the concussion protocol.
Bradford, Diggs and Easton, who missed Sunday’s win vs. the Packers, have not practiced since suffering (or reaggravating) injuries during the Vikings win in Chicago on Oct. 9.
Three defenders were limited Wednesday for the Vikings: cornerback Xavier Rhodes (shoulder), safety Andrew Sendejo (groin) and cornerback Mackensie Alexander (hip).
For the Ravens: WR Breshad Perriman (concussion), CB Jimmy Smith (Achilles), OT Ronnie Stanley (mouth), TE Benjamin Watson (knee), RB Terrance West (calf), TE Maxx Williams (ankle), G/C Matt Skura (knee) and LB Tim Williams (thigh) did not practice Wednesday. WRs Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) and Mike Wallace (back) were limited.
