Report: Teddy Bridgewater Will Likely Miss Entire 2017 Season

It's reportedly very likely that Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater will miss the entire 2017 season as he continues to recover from his knee injury.

According to a report from Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is likely to miss the entire 2017 NFL season, as he continues to rehab his injured knee.

Bridgewater tore his ACL and dislocated his knee back in August 2016, while planting to throw a pass during practice. Doctor reportedly told the team he'll need another 19 months to recover, meaning he'll likely miss his second consecutive season after sitting out all of 2016.

The 24-year old threw for 3,231 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2015, leading the Vikings to the playoffs where they fell to the Seahawks 10-9.

Minnesota went 8-8 this year with Sam Bradford under center, who they acquired via trade. Despite a hot 5-0 start, the Vikings missed the playoffs.
