The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings were back in town this week to start the first of three sets of Organized Team Activities before mid-June's mandatory mini-camp. Tuesday's practice lit #VikingsTwitter ablaze with video of Teddy Bridgewater taking snaps. I pontificate about that along with several other OTA talkers. Later in the show, we bring in Joshua Johnson (@DFF_Cog) to talk some fantasy implications about the young Vikes. Plus a clip of Matt Vensel (@MattVensel) of the Star Tribune and I chatting about Mike Zimmer's absence from OTAs due to his 8th eye surgery and both his short and long-term prospects with the team.

It's a dark day for Minnesota Vikings fans as Teddy Bridgewater suffered what appeared to be a serious non-contact knee injury Tuesday at practice. Serious enough that an ambulance was called in and practice was cancelled after only 25 minutes. Sam Ekstrom (@SamEkstrom) phoned in from Winter Park to give us the details on the the ground and I examine what the Vikings quarterback position (Shaun Hill, Taylor Heinicke, Free Agent TBD), the offense, and overall season outlook shifts with Teddy out.
