Teddy Bridgewater sends awesome tweet on anniversary of leg injury

Teddy Bridgewater

It took Teddy Bridgewater nearly four years after his devastating leg injury to convince a team he is worthy of being a full-time starter, and the quarterback has clearly kept that in perspective.

Sunday marked exactly four years since Bridgewater suffered one of the most gruesome leg injuries in NFL history while in training camp with the Minnesota Vikings. The 27-year-old sent a great tweet that illustrated how far he has come.

The doctor who performed the surgery on Bridgewater’s leg called the injury “horribly grotesque.” He provided a detailed description of the injury two years ago that showed just how hard Bridgewater worked to be able to take the field again.

Bridgewater had an incredibly long road to recovery, but he proved with the New Orleans Saints last year that he deserves another shot. Panthers head coach Matt Rhule recently raved about Bridgewater’s leadership. Everyone should be rooting for him to have success as Carolina’s starter.
