Report: Teddy Bridgewater likely to miss entire 2017 season

Teddy Bridgewater is unlikely to see the field in 2017, according to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole.

Bridgewater, who suffered a devastating knee injury prior to the start of the season, underwent reconstructive surgery to repair a torn ACL and other ligaments following the freak incident.

According to Cole, doctors have informed the Minnesota Vikings quarterback that the recovery time for his injury is at minimum 19 months, putting him out until Spring of 2018.

An official timetable for Bridgewater's return has not been set by the team, although head coach Mike Zimmer explained that his primary focus with the young quarterback is making a full recovery. All signs point to Sam Bradford remaining the Vikings' starting quarterback in 2017.
