Today is a busy day at Winter Park and not in a good way. Upon the news breaking that Teddy Bridgewater suffered what seemed to be a major injury in practice, the Vikings also announced the release of respected veteran John Sullivan and a number of other players. Shortly after, at about 4:00 PM local time, head coach Mike Zimmer held a press conference on the Bridgewater injury situation.
The moment was a significant one as it will either mark the beginning of the end for a highly anticipated 2016 season, or define Zimmer’s ability to overcome adversity and rally his team to a successful outcome and Coach of the Year considerations. All of that depends, of course, on how this team weathers the storm.
