Teddy Bridgewater injury update: Panthers QB leaves game with apparent right knee injury

Teddy Bridgewater limped to the locker room late during the Panthers’ Week 10 game against the Buccaneers.

Trailing by multiple scores in the fourth quarter, Bridgewater was crushed in the pocket by a defender he didn’t appear to see coming. The pass-rusher hit Bridgewater low, right around his knees. Bridgewater’s right knee appeared to bend inward, and Bridgewater was slow to get up. 

Panthers head coach Matt Rhule had “no update” on Bridgewater’s status in his postgame press conference.

Bridgewater eventually walked off the field before going with trainers to the locker room with about four minutes remaining in the game against the Buccaneers. The injury occurred to the opposite knee from the one that Bridgewater had seriously injured earlier in his career.

Although the Panthers were blown out by Tampa Bay, Bridgewater got off to a fast start, completing his first 12 passes. Overall, he was 18-for-24 for 136 yards with two touchdowns and an interception before exiting the game. Bridgewater also had a rushing touchdown.

Bridgewater was replaced by backup P.J. Walker, who starred in the AAF before joining Carolina. The Panthers are back in action next Sunday in Week 11 against the Lions.
