Now that Bridgewater has been cleared, the team has three weeks to decide whether or not to place him on injured reserve. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has been cleared to return to practice, ESPN.com reported , citing a source .

And the base itself sustained major damage.

The attacks come after the White House has given Gen. John Nicholson, the top commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan, "more authority to attack the Taliban, more warplanes and drones to mount punishing airstrikes - and a few thousand more American troops to advise the Afghans", as NPR's Tom Bowman reported earlier this month.

After the attack, Afghan security forces said that they had launched air and ground operations in 17 provinces that had killed 102 insurgents.

Taliban fighters then assaulted the facility, setting off several hours of fighting that killed almost every Afghan soldier there and wounded nine.

Eighty people were killed and 300 wounded in attacks on Tuesday in Afghanistan's southeast - the bloodiest day in the war-torn country in nearly five months.

The attacks targeted a police compound in the southeastern city of Gardez, capital of Paktia Province bordering Pakistan, and a security compound in the neighboring province of Ghazni.
