“Highly unlikely” Teddy Bridgewater plays this week

NFL: DEC 19 Bengals at Broncos

Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater spent Sunday night in a Denver hospital after suffering a concussion against the Bengals and the team said he was doing well when he was discharged on Monday morning, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be playing this week.

Head coach Vic Fangio called it “highly unlikely” that Bridgewater will be in the lineup against the Raiders. It’s the second time that Bridgewater has been in concussion protocol this season and the trip to the hospital illustrates the level of concern that the Broncos had about his condition on Sunday.

Drew Lock will step into the lineup while Bridgewater recovers. Lock was 6-of-12 for 88 yards and threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Tim Patrick, but also lost a fumble with the Broncos in the red zone with a chance to take the lead.

“Saw a couple good throws,” Fangio said, via Mike Klis of KUSA. “Couple others that were off target just a little bit. But hopefully with a week’s worth of practice, he’ll be much better prepared.”

That’s a better review than Fangio gave Lock after his last appearance and the Broncos will be looking for even more improvement this week.

  1. If the Raiders can STACK 3 wins against the Browns Denver and Indy it should be enough for the 7th and final wildcard position regardless of the Charger game…Maybe a chance but i dont believe the Raiders are well coached up enough to complete this journey…or our offensive coordinator will deliver another game in which the fans can guess his play calling—soo predictable!

  2. Was this the second time he was knocked out this season? He should probably just go on IR, if not retire, and thank me in 30-40 years.

  3. Don’t worry, the NFL will just delay the game until your starting QB is ready to play.

  4. Why bother. The broncs will be lucky if they win one more.

    looks lie 7 wins for the year and Vic returns to Defense Coordinator somewhere
