And Teddy goes down!
The Minnesota Vikings lost quarterback Teddy Bridgewater for the season today. Bridgewater went down 30 minutes into practice with a knee injury that was later revealed to be a torn ACL. It was serious enough that Bridgewater got an ambulance ride.

It’s not as if Bridgewater is some all-time great. Mediocre is the word we’d use to describe him, but the Vikings are clearly better with him than without him.
Their backups are Shaun Hill and Joel Stave.
Hill’s last extensive action was with the Rams in 2014, when he started eight games. He threw for 1,657 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions.
We told you the Vikings were cursed this season.
Fittingly, the injury happened in a non-contact drill.
