Teddy Bridgewater doesn't deny he could have lost leg in horrific injury

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 17:12:07 GMT

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater’s leg injury in practice last season was one of the freakiest in recent NFL memory, and it was also one of the scariest. Bridgewater spoke with the media at Vikings camp Thursday and did not deny he could have lost his leg after the injury. Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press tweeted that Bridgewater didn’t deny he was in jeopardy of losing his leg and spoke about the effort to “save” his leg.



Teddy Bridgewater's return: 'I know it's going to happen'

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 21:49:35 GMT

Minutes after Teddy Bridgewater's left knee dislocated beneath him, the result of one bad step on a routine drop-back during practice nearly a year ago, the Minnesota Vikings quarterback was hustled into an ambulance. Head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman went with him. Bridgewater's promising NFL career was hanging in the balance.



As others loom, Vikings get Griffen extension done early

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 21:42:55 GMT

Everson Griffen's contract status was not the most pressing for the Minnesota Vikings. Griffen signed a four-year extension with the Vikings on Wednesday, a new deal that would keep the two-time Pro Bowl defensive end under the team's control through the 2022 season. Griffen has 48 sacks in seven seasons with the Vikings, who drafted him in the fourth round in 2010 out of USC.



Teddy Bridgewater confident he will be able to return eventually

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 20:06:06 GMT

Nearly 11 months to the day since he sustained a major knee injury in the Minnesota Vikings' final preseason practice, Teddy Bridgewater still doesn't know when he'll be cleared to practice or when he'll be ready to return to a NFL game. In his first news conference since tearing multiple ligaments and dislocating his left knee last Aug. 30, Bridgewater struck a hopeful tone, saying his doctors haven't called the injury career-ending and crediting his mother Rose Murphy's battle with breast cancer for giving him the strength to take on an arduous rehabilitation process. The Vikings put Bridgewater on the physically unable to perform list Wednesday, and a return date remains unclear for the quarterback. Coach Mike Zimmer admitted, however, that the initial prognosis for Bridgewater's knee was bleak and said Bridgewater has "done a remarkable job" getting back to the point where he is now.



Teddy Bridgewater Placed on PUP List to Start Training Camp

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 23:41:03 GMT

Teddy Bridgewater will open training camp on the physically unable to perform list, the Minnesota Vikings announced Wednesday. Late last August, Bridgewater suffered a knee injury during training camp that included a torn ACL along with other damage, and he was forced to miss the entire 2016 season. The Vikings then traded for Sam Bradford from the Philadelphia Eagles in early September to take over the starting duties with Bridgewater out for the year.



2017 NFL Preview: NFC North

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 11:13:01 GMT

The Packers made it to the NFC Championship game last season and have won this division in five of the last six seasons. Detroit also made a rare postseason appearance in 2016, while the Vikings finished at 8-8. The NFC North will be matched against the AFC North next season. This cold weather division is usually closely contested and three teams hold playoff aspirations. Green Bay is currently the heavy favorite, while Detroit and Minnesota should be in the mix for a wildcard spot. Final division standings projection: 1. Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers is the best quarterback in the NFL and does not appear to be slowing down any time soon. Their offensive line came together last year, allowing



Former Viking great struggles with memory loss after years of hard hits

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 12:04:00 GMT

(KMSP) - A new study shows an alarming rate of degenerative brain disease among American football players, especially those who played in the NFL. The study, published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, looked at the brains of 202 deceased football players. Out of the 111 former professional players tested, only one did not test positive for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive neurodegeneration associated with repetitive head trauma. “You have to realize this is one study,” said Dr. Uzma Samadani who herself is nationally renowned for her research into sports related brain injury. Samadani warns that the results of this



Vikings sign DE Everson Griffen to extension

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 17:59:53 GMT

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have signed two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Everson Griffen to a contract extension. Griffen's deal was done Wednesday, when veteran players reported to training camp at Minnesota State University in Mankato. Griffen's previous contract, which was signed in 2014, had two years remaining. Griffen has 48 sacks in seven seasons with the Vikings, who drafted him in the fourth round in 2010 out of USC. His tenure is the second longest on the team. Since becoming a full-time starter in 2014, Griffen has 30½ sacks, the fifth most in the league during that span. © 2017 KARE-TV
