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.

We discuss some of those items as well as what we want to figure out about this new behemoth of a stadium.

Crystal Balling the Fringe Vikings Guys [PODCAST]

90-man rosters are like an episode of Game of Thrones: Not everyone is going to make it.

But what lies ahead for some of these fringe Minnesota Vikings players that are likely to be cut in the next two weeks? I do my best Miss Cleo (RIP) impression and look into my magic ball to see the future of these players. Some of their futures include football. Some include being a manager at HuHot.

All that and other “CALL ME NOW.” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Minnesota Vikings Teddy Bridgewater Injury

Teddy Bridgewater has a mysterious and sudden shoulder injury. Matt Kalil bowed out of practice Sunday. Brandon Fusco has a neck. Who the heck knows about Mike Harris. Sharrif Floyd and Eric Kendricks are perpetually banged up. Jarius Wright has a calf. Tre Roberson has a broken hand. Xavier Rhodes has a hamsting. WHAT IS HAPPENING?! WHY CAN WE NOT HAVE NICE THINGS?

Austin Belisle (@austincbelisle) of Vikings Territory joins me again to talk Teddy, preseason, and Vikings as we mercifully rumble towards the regular season.

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