Yesterday, Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer told us that quarterback Teddy Bridgewater’s knee surgery went well yesterday morning.
Now the Vikings have released more details from head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman, who reports that the dislocated knee Bridgewater suffered on Aug. 30 tore multiple ligaments, not just his ACL. The knee surgery was performed by Dr. Dan Cooper at the Carrell Clinic in Dallas.
“I was able to be present in Dallas, support Teddy and observe the entire procedure,” Sugarman said in a statement. “The repair was excellent and gives Teddy every reason to be very optimistic. Teddy already began the rehab process yesterday, will return to Minnesota to continue on the road to recovery very soon and looks forward to getting back on the field.”
