Teddy Bridgewater has been through so much already in his NFL career, so it wasn’t shocking to see that everybody was so frightened to see him injured on Sunday. Bridgewater suffered a head injury in the third quarter of the Denver Broncos’ game against the Cincinnati Bengals and had to be strapped to a backboard and carted off.
On the play he was injured, Bridgewater ran for the first down and dove, extending the ball. When he was in the air, he got hit and was pushed faster towards the ground where his head slammed on the ground. He was unconscious for a minute before coming to.
Hours later, the head coach would release a health update on Bridgewater.
“QB Teddy Bridgewater will stay at the hospital overnight for further evaluation, but so far everything has checked out well, per Coach Fangio.”
Bridgewater suffered one of the worst injuries in recent memory, when he blew out his knee on a freak accident in practice. Reports at that time stated he could’ve lost his leg.
Bridgewater battled to make it back in the NFL, shine with the Saints and be named Broncos starter this season after a training camp competition with Lock.
Hopefully, he can come back from this as well.
