Vikings rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was not at practice on Monday. He’s nursing an ankle injury suffered in the 41-28 victory over the Falcons on Sunday.

Quarterback Christian Ponder received ­first team reps in Bridgewater’s absence with practice squad quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson serving as his backup. Head coach Mike Zimmer said he was hopeful Bridgewater would play on Thursday against the Packers.

Along with Bridgewater, linebacker Chad Greenway and cornerback Captain Munnerlyn were not at practice. Greenway missed Sunday’s game with broken hand and a rib injury. Munnerlyn missed practice due to an illness.

Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon (ankle) and cornerback Josh Robinson (hamstring) were limited.

Linebacker Michael Mauti (foot), wide receiver Rodney Smith (hamstring), linebacker Brandon Watts (knee) and fullback Jerome Felton (knee) were listed on the injury report but were full participants.
