According to a recent report from Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will likely miss the entire 2017 season.
Bridgewater suffered a catastrophic knee injury a week before the 2016 season opener. The injury, sustained on a non-contact play during a normal practice session, included a torn ACL and a full knee dislocation. Fortunately for Bridgewater, the injury did not result in nerve damage to the knee, which could have been worse for the quarterback’s long-term playing prospects.
In the video published by Bleacher Report, Cole reported:
“Doctors told the team that the shortest recovery time for that type of injury has been 19 months. Based on that timeline, Bridgewater won’t be recovered until March 2018 in the best case scenario.”
