05/24/17 - QB Teddy Bridgewater, who hasn't played or practiced sustained a career-threatening injury to his left knee last August, is back throwing footballs. Tuesday, the Vikings posted video on their website of the 24-year-old quarterback dropping back and throwing passes.
A day later, General Manager Rick Spielman gave an update on Bridgewater, calling his progress "very encouraging" while declining to give any kind of timetable for his return. Spielman spoke to reporters during an OTA practice. Bridgewater, who hasn't spoken to the media since sustaining his injury, wasn't there. Spielman said Bridgewater had a doctor's appointment. "Part of the rehab process you saw (Tuesday) was that (Bridgewater) is able to drop back and throw the ball," Spielman said. "He is not cleared for practice, so I want to make that perfectly clear. But he's working extremely hard in his rehab and we'll continue to monitor his progress."
05/01/17 - QB Teddy Bridgewater was told on Monday that the Vikings will not pick up the fifth-year option for the 2018 season. The Vikings decided to decline the $12.198 option on Bridgewater, according to the Pioneer Press. Bridgewater, who dislocated his left knee and tore the ACL during a late August practice, is rehabbing and trying to make it back from the catastrophic injury.
He has been participating in voluntary conditioning work with teammates. Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said last week there is still no timetable for the 24-year-old Bridgewater to resume a full workload of football activities. The Vikings could still re-sign Bridgewater but they do not appear willing to guarantee his 2018 salary.
01/27/17 - QB Teddy Bridgewater will likely miss the entire 2017 season due to his horrific leg injury suffered five months ago, according to Bleacher Report. The website reported that doctors have told the Vikings that Bridgewater's knee injury will require 19 months to heal. Bridgewater dislocated his left knee and tore the ACL during a late August practice.
09/09/16 - QB Teddy Bridgewater had a successful knee surgery on Thursday, the team announced. "Teddy Bridgewater had his left knee surgically repaired yesterday," Eric Sugarman, the Vikings' director of sports medicine and head athletic trainer, said in a statement released Friday. "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." Bridgewater underwent the operation to repair the ACL in the left knee that he also dislocated on Aug. 30 during practice. He will be sidelined all of this season and his availability for the 2017 campaign will be determined at a later time.
