Vikings Announce Full Extent Of Teddy Bridgewater's Injury

The Vikings have announced the full extent of Teddy Bridgewater's injury.

Minnesota's starting quarterback suffered a dislocated left knee and a complete tear of his ACL. There is also other ligament damage.

Here's the Vikings statement on his injury. It comes from Vikings Director of Sports Medicine and Head Athletic Trainer Eric Sugarman.

Teddy Bridgewater suffered a non-contact injury today at practice. The injury was quickly identified as a dislocated knee. The injury was stabilized, and he was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment and evaluation. After undergoing an MRI, it was determined that Teddy suffered a complete tear to his ACL and other structural damage. Fortunately, there appears to be no nerve or arterial damage. Surgical repair will be scheduled within the next few days. Although the recovery time will be significant, we expect Teddy to make a full recovery. I would like to thank all of the medical professionals and our athletic training staff for all of their help today. Teddy has already displayed the attitude needed to overcome this injury and attack his rehab.

Here's to a full recovery for Teddy.
