Teddy Bridgewater suffered a “significant (left) knee injury” in Tuesday’s practice at Winter Park, according to Mike Zimmer, but the coach said the team did not yet know the extent of the injury suffered by the quarterback.
Bridgewater reportedly did not take a hit before falling to the ground after he dropped back to pass and planted his foot. Players gathered around Bridgewater and some began to pray. An ambulance was brought in to transport the third-year quarterback to the hospital.
ESPN reported that trainers rushed to Bridgewater’s side and began inflating an aircast, as Bridgewater held his leg. Zimmer said Bridgewater was sedated and was undergoing an MRI as he spoke at a press conference around 5 p.m. eastern time. We'll continue to update.
