Broncos QB Teddy Bridgewater strapped down and carted off after scary head injury

Yahoo Sports

Teddy Bridgewater has been through so much already in his NFL career. Seeing him get carted off, strapped to a backboard, was a scary sight Sunday afternoon.

Bridgewater suffered a head injury in the third quarter of the Denver Broncos' game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was down for a while before being carted off in front of the quiet crowd. The Broncos lost 15-10 to severely damage their playoff hopes, but the concern was for the popular Bridgewater and his health.
On the play he was injured, Bridgewater ran for the first down and dove, extending the ball. When he was in the air he was shoved forward and landed hard on his shoulder, neck and head. He dropped the ball when he hit the turf and was motionless for a few moments.

Bridgewater suffered a concussion earlier this season but didn't miss a game. On Sunday he was replaced by Drew Lock, who threw a touchdown to Tim Patrick on his first possession.

The Broncos announced during the game that Bridgewater had movement in his extremities but was being taken to a hospital as a precaution. After the game, they announced that he would remain hospitalized overnight for evaluation, but that everything had "checked out well."

I read 2 Glove Teddy was released from the hospital earlier this morning and placed on Concussion protocol. This is concussion #2 for the season ... gotta monitor that.

The team has announced that Teddy is doing well though.
