The Minnesota Vikings won the NFC North and made the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and they were looking to do much of the same this year. However, they could be in trouble after quarterback Teddy Bridgewater went down with what looked to be a serious injury during practice Tuesday.
During the team’s practice, Bridgewater went down with a non-contact injury to his knee. He immediately grabbed his left knee and some reporters said that teammates could be heard cursing aloud after the injury.
Bad scene. Bridgewater down in pocket grabbing left knee. Players freaked out, swearing and praying. Immobilized. Practice halted #Vikings

The Vikings then reportedly ended practice after just 25 minutes on the field. An ambulance pulled up as Bridgewater was being attended to.
Teddy Bridgewater is entering his third season in the NFL and was looking to have another big year. He has thrown for 6,150 yards and 28 touchdowns, while rushing for 401 yards and four touchdowns.
This is certainly not what the Vikings needed going into the season. They may have to go with Shaun Hill or rookie Joel Stave going into the season.
