According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Teddy Bridgewater will undergo surgery on Thursday to repair the torn ACL and other structural damage in his left knee.
The Vikings at this time believe Bridgewater will eventually make a full recovery and resume his NFL career, a source said, but more will be known after the surgery is completed.
Bridgewater suffered the season-ending injury without contact in a Vikings' practice last week.
The Vikings moved to replace the third-year quarterback by trading with the Philadelphia Eagles for Sam Bradford, a transaction costing Minnesota two draft choices, including their first-round draft pick in 2017 and a conditional fourth-rounder in 2018.
Here’s hoping this is step one of a full and (relatively) speedy recovery process for Teddy.
