Teddy Bridgewater Reportedly Suffered A Serious “Non-Contact” Knee Injury During Practice

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater suffered an apparent non-contact injury to his left knee during Tuesday’s practice.

According to Brian Murphy of the ST. Paul Pioneer Press, Bridgewater fell down in the pocket and instantly grabbed his left knee. Many players began to “freak out, swearing and praying.”

ESPN’s Ben Goessling reported that the injury occurred on a non-contact play and practice was immediately stop, 25 minutes short.


Bridgewater was nursing a sore shoulder earlier in Training Camp that forced him to miss the team’s second preseason game, but the injury proved to be minor. Bridgewater had also had a great camp, per reports and was making major strides.

Losing Bridgewater would put a major dent in the Minnesota Vikings Super Bowl aspirations.
