Teddy Bridgewater’s road back to football is going to be a tumultuous journey but it’s one that sports fans are hoping for.
The Minnesota Vikings quarterback dislocated his knee and tore his ACL in late August. It’s an injury that created shockwaves around the NFL and changed the makeup over Vikings and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Minnesota placed Bridgewater on injured reserve shortly after his injury and his timetable for a return is unknown for the 2017 season.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter proved an update on the Vikings QB on Sunday.
“Teddy Bridgewater continues to rehab in Minnesota and he is making progress. Two months after he dislocated his knee, Bridgewater is making strides and Vikings officials are pleased with where he is at,” Schefter said on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown. “But other doctors around the league know that there are no guarantee that Bridgewater will be able to return to the type of quarterback that he was if he makes it back to the NFL at all. As one doctor who has worked with NFL teams said this week, ‘if he didn’t make it back it wouldn’t surprise me. This is a bad injury about the worst knee injury a player can have.'”
Sam Bradford has filled in nicely for Bridgewater. Yet we all want to see Bridgewater bounce back from his gruesome knee injury. It’ll be a shame to see the young QB’s career cut short after just a couple years due to a severe knee injury.
