EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (KMSP) - Minnesota Vikings head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman released the following update on quarterback Teddy Bridgewater:
“Teddy Bridgewater had his left knee surgically repaired yesterday. The procedure was performed by Dr. Dan Cooper at the Carrell Clinic in Dallas, TX. The knee dislocation resulted in Teddy needing a multi-ligament reconstruction. I was able to be present in Dallas, support Teddy and observe the entire procedure. The repair was excellent and gives Teddy every reason to be very optimistic. Teddy already began the rehab process yesterday, will return to Minnesota to continue on the road to recovery very soon and looks forward to getting back on the field.”
Teddy Bridgewater dislocated his knee and tore his ACL during practice on Aug. 30. The Vikings say the 23-year-old faces a long road of rehabilitation, but is expected to make a full recovery.
