Bridge-Wilkinson has been forced to miss The Bantams' last five games and he has now been told to rest entirely for a week - after having his leg fitted in a brace.
City boss Colin Todd admits the situation is providing him with somewhat of a conundrum, but he is hopeful that it can be solved in the next couple of weeks.
''It has been over three weeks now for a very minor ligament problem,'' Todd told the Bradford Telegraph & Argus.
''He's had it X-rayed and scanned and the specialist said there was very minimal discomfort there.
''It's disappointing he hasn't made the improvement we were looking for so I have decided, along with the physio, that he has a week off in the hope that he comes back ready.''
