The Sports Gods have not graced us UofL fans with much good news these past 2 weeks, but they have chosen to grace us with some today.
Teddy Bridgewater, per ESPN reporter Chris Mortensen, has been cleared to return to practice for the Vikings.
That’s not the end of the good news. Per Ian Rapoport, the national insider for the NFL Network and NFL.com, the Vikings are looking to activate Teddy this week or next week from the Physically Unable to Perform list. The Vikings anticipate Teddy will play this year, according to Rapoport. There is no mention of what game is being targeted for Teddy’s return.
Finally, some great news for UofL fans. We all love Teddy and can’t wait to see him on the field again.
We have an update from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.
Teddy gets to start practice Wednesday! The great news got even better in regards to Teddy. Here’s hoping we UofL fans get to see him in game action soon.
The last few weeks have been rough. There’s no hiding it. Today, some of the Cardinal football players sent out some tweets reminding everyone why we cheer for them and why they deserve our unwaivering support.
Cardinal forever, Cole Hikutini, was promoted to the active roster for the San Francisco 49ers. Congrats to Cole!

Unfortunately, UofL lost the football game against Boston College. It hurt. It was terrible. However, there was just a glimmer of goodness in all the gloom. That glimmer was Lamar Jackson.
Lamar once again put up insane numbers, as he nearly always does. He threw for 332 yards and 2 TDs and rushed for 180 yards and 3 TDs. That’s a total of 512 total yards and 5 TDs by himself!
Lamar is a special talent that we UofL fans may never see the likes of again. Take a look at his highlights below courtesy of the ACC Digital Network and GoCards YouTube accounts. Enjoy the art that Lamar has wrought on the field.

While the score wasn’t what UofL fans wanted, there were positives to come out of the game last night. Lamar Jackson had a record breaking game against NC State. Kelly Dickey (@RealCardGame) detailed what records Lamar broke.
