Vikings Had Concerns About Teddy Bridgewater's Knee

Mar 28, 2018 8:39 AM

The Minnesota Vikings had concerns about Teddy Bridgewater's knee following a postseason medical evaluation.

Mike Zimmer was asked at the NFL owners meetings about his perspective on the health of the quarterback and what he witnessed after Bridgewater returned to practice this past November.

"The reports I'd get back from the medical people weren't as positive as I was about it," Zimmer said. "That's kind of how it came down is that his knee wasn't as ... he still has some recovery to do. When I watched him in practice, he moved well, I didn't see limitations, but, from what I was told, there was some."

The Vikings allowed Bridgewater to walk in free agency and he signed with the New York Jets.

Bridgewater dislocated his knee during a noncontact drill on Aug. 30, 2016.
