Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was carted off the field after taking a scary hit while diving for a first down during the Broncos’ 15-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for further evaluation, but was released this morning and is now in concussion protocol.
Broncos head coach Vic Fangio told reporters on Monday he’s “relieved” that Bridgewater is doing well after the scary sequence Sunday.
“He sounded a lot better this morning than he did last night. Last night he just sounded real tired,” Fangio said, via Troy Renck of Denver7. “This morning, I just spoke to him, he sounded much better.”
While Bridgewater is on the road to recovery, Fangio said it was “probably highly unlikely he plays this week” when the Broncos take on the Las Vegas Raiders in Sin City.
