Teddy Bridgewater almost had his leg amputated after the gruesome left leg injury he suffered during the 2016 preseason. He could have died if it wasn’t for the quick response of the EMS staff on the field. The injury was so bad that it reduced many of his teammates to tears.
Many said that his career was likely done, and after hearing accounts of his leg essentially folding in half, it was hard to credibly doubt them. Bridgewater has been on the rehab grind since the injury, and yesterday he proved his doubters wrong by returning to Vikings practice for the first time since going down.
It’s unknown how far he is from actually being ready to play in a game, or if he’ll be a part of Minnesota’s future plans, but it’s hard to bet against the guy. Most wouldn’t have made it this far.
Good to see you back out there, @teddyb_h2o!
