Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will be spending the night in a Denver hospital after suffering a head injury in Sunday’s 15-10 loss to the Bengals.

Bridgewater was taken from the field to an ambulance after slamming face-first into the ground while diving for a first down at the end of a third quarter run. Bridgewater had movement in his extremities and the team said the trip to the hospital was precautionary.

Per the team, Bridgewater suffered a concussion and checked out well on a CAT scan and other tests. It’s the second concussion that Bridgewater has suffered this season and he returned without missing a game after the first one.

Bridgewater was 12-of-22 for 98 yards before being knocked out on Sunday.

  1. Glad he’s okay. Hope he really considers the risks of continuing to play. He’s a competitor. He’s a professional. He’s also got a history. Best of luck to him.

  2. Considering the risks of continuing to play, chue? Yeah, $20mil per after this season should be worth the risk. A 67% completion rate and a 3:1 TD to INT ratio will get him that contract whether we think he’s good or not.
