Created: 08/05/2014 2:34 PM

Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner met the media on Tuesday morning. No shock that the "A" topic was rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and how much he'll play in Friday's preseason game vs. Oakland.

"We need to Teddy to play with the first (offensive) line," Turner said. "He needs to play to get through that first time out."
