Teddy Bridgewater Injury

It’s a dark day for Minnesota Vikings fans as Teddy Bridgewater suffered what appeared to be a serious non-contact knee injury Tuesday at practice. Serious enough that an ambulance was called in and practice was cancelled after only 25 minutes. Sam Ekstrom (@SamEkstrom) phoned in from Winter Park to give us the details on the the ground and I examine how the Vikings quarterback position (Shaun Hill, Taylor Heinicke, Free Agent TBD), the offense, and overall season outlook shifts with Teddy out.

All that and other “Dammit” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Teddy Bridgewater Injured at Vikings Practice

Luck has seemingly run out for the Minnesota Vikings. Reports from multiple media members at Tuesday’s practice indicate a potentially serious injury for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. According to those in attendance, Bridgewater crumpled to the crowd twenty minutes into practice, effectively ending the session.

Trainers rushed to Bridgewater’s side and immediately checked on his leg. Sam Ekstrom reported that Bridgewater’s teammates reacted with “swearing” and the “slamming of helmets,” a sign that the non-contact injury could be of the season-ending variety. It’s too early to confirm, but an ambulance arrived shortly after the incident and Mike Zimmer will reportedly speak to the media soon, per Matt Vensel.

I just finished stuffing my face full of this dish and as this site’s unofficial taste tester, it gets my full approval! This might be the best idea Vikings Territory has ever had (at least my stomach thinks so).

Enjoy this week’s dish!

Here at Vikings Territory, we love to celebrate the victories experienced by our fine collection of contributors, even when it brings a certain amount of sadness due to their departure. In the case of Adam Patrick, however, we are lucky enough to be touting his success story without that bittersweet goodbye having to take place (yet).

Adam Patrick, and his lovely wife of “Danielle’s Dish” fame, recently embarked on the journey of a lifetime when they packed everything up and jaunted across the country from New York State to San Diego to begin a new adventure together in a new city.

Since landing in San Diego, Adam has been able to leverage the football prowess he puts on display here at VT every day, and land two new gigs with big outlets you are sure to recognize.

There is plenty of action regarding the Vikings new cycle in recent days, and we’re keeping up with it all, but my love for weekly schedules dictates that now is the time to take a look around the NFC North to see what our biggest enemies are up to.

Packers First Round Pick Falling Behind

The Green Bay Packers used the 27th overall pick to select UCLA defensive lineman Kenny Clark earlier this year. Since then, circumstances have prevented him from getting fully caught up on the rigors of life in the NFL.

First, the NFL rule preventing draft picks from attending team activities while school is still in session prevented Clark from reporting to Green Bay’s offseason program in June. He attempted to utilize technology such as Skype, according to ESPN‘s Rob Demovsky, to keep up with what his coaches wanted him to know.

Then came the back injury.
