Teddy Bridgewater Suffered a Dislocated Knee And A Complete Tear His ACL

Teddy Bridgewater is in for a lengthy recovery from his knee injury.  The Vikings released a statement on his injury which was diagnosed as a dislocated knee and a completely torn ACL.

Teddy Bridgewater suffered a non-contact injury today at practice. The injury was quickly identified as a dislocated knee. The injury was stabilized, and he was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment and evaluation. After undergoing an MRI, it was determined that Teddy suffered a complete tear to his ACL and other structural damage. Fortunately, there appears to be no nerve or arterial damage. Surgical repair will be scheduled within the next few days. Although the recovery time will be significant, we expect Teddy to make a full recovery. I would like to thank all of the medical professionals and our athletic training staff for all of their help today. Teddy has already displayed the attitude needed to overcome this injury and attack his rehab.

A huge loss for the Vikings and a huge injury for Bridgewater.
