Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will most likely miss the entire season after suffering a torn ACL at practice on Tuesday.
"After undergoing an MRI, it was determined that Teddy suffered a complete tear to his ACL and other structural damage," the club confirmed in a statement.
"Fortunately, there appears to be no nerve or arterial damage. Surgical repair will be scheduled within the next few days.
"Although the recovery time will be significant, we expect Teddy to make a full recovery.
"Teddy has already displayed the attitude needed to overcome this injury and attack his rehab."
When asked if there is any hope Bridgewater could play this season, coach Mike Zimmer said, "it doesn't look good right now".
Bridgewater went down with the injury 30 minutes into the team's practice session yesterday.
