Bridgewater to miss all of 2017 season?

According to a report from Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is likely to miss the entire 2017 National Football League season, as he continues to rehab his injured knee.

Bridgewater suffered the injury during a non-contact drill, dislocating his knee and tearing his anterior cruciate ligament.

The report states the average recovery time for this type of injury is 19 months, placing Bridgewater's return all the way back to March 2018.

According to a new report from Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, Bridgewater is "likely" to miss all of the 2017 season, too.




Bridgewater's salary cap number for next season is $2.18 million, and the Vikings must decide by May 2 whether they plan to pick up his 2018 option for about $12.5 million. The Vikings, after starting the season 5-0, finished the year at 8-8 and missed the playoffs.

Minnesota went 8-8 this year with Sam Bradford under center, who they acquired via trade. Minnesota might have to navigate life without Bridgewater for at least one more season.

Bridgewater, 24, was taken with the final pick of the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft out of Louisville.
