Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater missed all of the 2016 season when he tore his ACL and dislocated his knee during the preseason.
According to a new report from Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole, Bridgewater is likely to miss all of the 2017 season, too. Doctors have informed the Vikings that Bridgewater’s knee injury typically takes 19 months to heal, according to Cole’s report. Best-case scenario, then, would be a March 2018 return.
Bridgewater is just 24, and he led the upstart Vikings to the playoffs last year. However, missing two straight seasons could put his career in jeopardy.
