Teddy Bridgewater has already suffered a devastating knee harm as soon as in his profession, finishing a comeback for the ages in turning into one of many NFL’s greatest surprises this season. The Carolina Panthers rallied round their quarterback after Atlanta Falcons defensive finish Charles Harris took a shot at Bridgewater’s head/neck space and knee whereas he was on the bottom after being tripped by fellow Falcons defensive finish Dante Fowler Jr. Harris was ejected from the sport with an pointless roughness penalty.

Bridgewater left the sport with soreness in his neck and shoulder space and headed to the blue medical tent. Bridgewater was subsequent seen on the sideline after leaving the medical tent with trainers who have been engaged on his neck. After lacking the remainder of Carolina’s offensive collection, Panthers backup quarterback P.J. Walker returned to the sphere for the subsequent collection for just a few snaps earlier than Bridgewater returned to the sport to take again over because the starter.
P.J. Walker, the XFL star from this previous spring, entered the sport for Bridgewater and accomplished a move try because the Panthers netted a area aim on the drive.
The hit definitely caught the attention of superstars across the league, with the principle one being Bridgewater’s former teammate Michael Thomas. Bridgewater and Thomas have been teammates in New Orleans the previous two seasons.
Bridgewater seems set now to complete the sport for Carolina.
