Teddy Bridgewater suffered what sounded like an absolutely horrific leg injury in Vikings practice on Tuesday, and he’ll almost certainly be out for the entire season with a torn ACL and a dislocated knee. As more details emerge about the incident, however, it could have been much, much worse.
If you want to visualize what a tibiofemoral dislocation looks like on an X-ray, don’t say we didn’t warn you. Doctors said Bridgewater didn’t have any nerve or arterial damage, and considering the severe bone displacement associated with the injury, we’re stunned that he avoided such issues.
Remember, this was a non-contact injury, so from the information we have, Bridgewater’s knee essentially exploded just from him running around.
