Teddy Bridgewater was at the Winter Park training facilities on Monday, just days before he’s scheduled to undergo surgery.
According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Bridgewater will undergo surgery Thursday to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament and other structural damage in his left knee. The non-contact injury caused Bridgewater’s knee to dislocate Aug. 30 during a routine practice drill.
To take Bridgewater’s place, the Vikings traded for quarterback Sam Bradford on Saturday by sending a 2017 first-round pick and conditional 2018 fourth-round pick to Philadelphia. The team has not said whether Bradford or Shaun Hill will start Sunday in Tennessee, though the tentative plan this weekend was for Hill to lead the offense.
The Vikings, Bridgewater’s agent and his adviser did not immediately return requests for confirmation.
