Teddy Bridgewater May Just Sit Out the Entire 2017 Season
Many months after suffering a major non-contact knee injury, Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is still recovering and learning that he may not be able to play at all in 2017. It is still early to speculate his status for 2017, but sources are saying that there is a good change he will not be back to full strength in time to start next season, or even play at all.
The Vikings were able to pick up quarterback Sam Bradford via trade with the Philadelphia Eagles to fill the gap at quarterback. He will still be under contract through 2017.
Bridgewater did win Ed Block Courage Award last December.
"It's an honor to win this award, especially as my teammates made the selection," Bridgewater said. "2016 has been amazing for me. Everyone looks at an injury as a negative. It has helped me spiritually and mentally even with me already being an extremely positive person."
