When news began to spread of a serious knee injury to Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater on the afternoon of August 30th this past summer, the hope for many was for this kid to be okay. When Bridgewater went down to the ground that day at practice, the Vikings’ medical staff immediately knew that this was no ordinary football injury.
The fact that an ambulance had to be called to get the quarterback to a hospital minutes after the injury initially occurred should tell someone just how serious it was.
The hope for Minnesota and their young quarterback is that he will make a full recovery and eventually return to the field one day to throw his first regular season touchdown in U.S. Bank Stadium. That is just a hope for now because no one truly knows if Bridgewater will ever be able to make it back onto the football field.
