140929-news-now-mccarthy-300GREEN BAY — Minnesota QB Teddy Bridgewater injured his ankle in his first NFL start Sunday against Atlanta, but Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy said during his Monday press conference that his team will prepare as though the rookie signal caller will be starting again on Thursday night.

“I would think he’s going to play,” said McCarthy, who added that he watched a recorded TV broadcast of Sunday’s Minnesota-Atlanta game after he returned home from Chicago and then watched the coaches’ tape of the game Monday morning.

“I thought he played well. I was told he feels pretty good, and the tests were negative. We’ll plan for Bridgewater.”

Reports out of Minnesota are that Bridgewater’s ankle injury is not serious. He threw for more than 300 yards in leading the Vikings to a victory that evened their record at 2-2, same as the Packers.

Packers DL Josh Boyd (knee) and LB Sam Barrington (hamstring) were added to Green Bay’s injury report. The team will practice on Tuesday.
