The Vikings released a statement on Bridgewater’s surgery from head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman:

Bridgewater had his left knee surgically repaired yesterday. The procedure was performed by Dr. Dan Cooper at the Carrell Clinic in Dallas, TX. The knee dislocation resulted in Teddy needing a multi-ligament reconstruction. I was able to be present in Dallas, support Teddy and observe the entire procedure. 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.

The Vikings announced that they’ve re-signed quarterback Brad Sorensen to take Bridgewater’s place on the active roster.

Bridgewater’s adviser, Abe Elam, said Bridgewater is out of the hospital, per Tom Pelissero of USA Today.


As early as April 2013, Bridgewater was seen as one of the top prospects for the 2014 NFL Draft, alongside Jadeveon Clowney and Johnny Manziel.

Reports said that, had he been eligible for the 2013 Draft, he most likely would have been the first quarterback taken.

On September 12, Bridgewater made his Broncos debut on the road against the New York Giants, completing 28-of-36 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns in a 27–13 season-opening victory.

She’s also notably a published fiction author. Her first books are a series of children’s stories called “Little Bear Teddy: Big Dreams Come True.”

Cardona has kept a low profile and remained unseen by the public eye. Her first book was published in 2017, with its follow-up dropping three years later in 2020.

In an interview with Carolina Blitz, Cardona says she came up with the idea for “Little Bear Teddy” in 2016, after “the real Teddy had his unfortunate injury.” She’s referring to an injury her boyfriend Teddy Bridgewater suffered in preseason 2016 that resulted in a torn ACL, dislocation of the knee joint and other structural damages.

She wrote the first draft of the children’s book while she waited with Teddy in the hospital. The second book in the “Little Bear Teddy” series, “Big Change,” was inspired by changes in Bridgewater’s career and an unexpected thyroid biopsy in Cardona’s own life.
