Bridgewater suffered the season-ending injury last Tuesday, shortly after practice began at Winter Park. The Vikings quickly canceled practice as the quarterback was taken away in an ambulance.
A few hours later, an MRI revealed a complete tear of his ACL, plus other structural damage to his knee, but fortunately, no nerve or arterial damage.
While there is no way to predict a timeline on a possible return, Bridgewater issued a statement last Thursday saying, "I come from amazing DNA, I watched my mom fight and win against breast cancer. We will, as a team, attack my rehab with the same vigor and energy. My faith is strong, my faith is unwavering and my vision is clear. My purpose will not be denied."
