More bad news is coming out of Minnesota as it seems like Minnesota Vikings quarterback and former University of Louisville star quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will likely miss the 2017 season. It is expected for Teddy’s injury to take 19 months to fully recover. Since he suffered his injury in Vikings practice last August, that would put the time of his return roughly around March of 2018.

Bridgewater suffered the injury during a non-contact drill, dislocating his knee and tearing his anterior cruciate ligament. It was so severe, that if the Vikings medical staff had not acted so quickly, the long-term damage could have been far worse. Several Vikings players dropped to their knees and were getting sick.

There’s really no other way to fully describe this situation other than it just completely sucks. While at Louisville, Teddy was a favorite among Cardinal fans, and from all indications, he made the same impression on Vikings fans. Hopefully by March of 2018 we’ll have some good news when it comes to Bridgewater’s road back to playing again.
