Teddy Bridgewater 911 call indicates dislocated knee
When Teddy Bridgewater went down with a non-contact injury at Tuesday’s Minnesota Vikings practice, you knew automatically that the injury was serious. Another sign of the gravity of the injury came from the team’s decision to call 911 for an ambulance to have the quarterback taken away.
Though the extent of the injury is not yet known, we do know the Vikings suspected Bridgewater dislocated his knee.
As shared by the Star Tribune’s Colleen Kelley, the audio from the Bridgewater 911 call indicates the Vikings felt the QB had a dislocated knee.
Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer cancelled practice for the rest of the day after the injury. He said players were devastated, and another report said the injury was so nasty it had Vikings players puking.
Zimmer did not share much about the injury except that it was “significant” and potentially season-ending. He also called it a “freaky” thing.
Bridgewater, a first-round pick in 2014, was preparing to lead the Vikings for the third season.
