    So very sorry to hear this. I really like him and my son's fiance is a huge Vikings fan so I've kind of been following them. Hope for the quickest recovery possible but he obviously has a long road ahead of him.

    No idea... Pretty crazy. Only thing I can think is that his knee dislocated and that tore the ACL. But still, with no contact that's hard to imagine.

    Bet he had a partial tear before. Just a guess. And I hope he gets all the surgery and rehab behind him and comes back stronger than ever.

    No one is giving up a first rounder. Not even in a desperate time like this.

    My understanding of a dislocated knee (not just a dislocated kneecap) is that all ligaments must tear. Is that true? Is that what the "other structural damage" is referring to?

    Hate it for Teddy, the Vikes, and the NFL.

    AJ might be worth a Super Bowl for the Bengals if Dalton gets hurt. You want to trade away a Super Bowl? You want to rely on Wenning if Dalton gets hurt? I don't understand why everyone wants to trade AJ. I keep him as long as I can if I am the Bengals.

    Prayers for a full and speedy recovery for Teddy.

    I thought Bridgewater would have a huge year. I hope recovers and comes back better than ever. I hope Zim can find a qb to replace him.

    I'm a huge AJ fan. I'm not on the trade AJ bandwagon. If it were up to me, I'd let Andy roll through this year then hand the keys to AJ.

    However if Andys going to be the man for the foreseeable future, why not get something for AJ before he walks and the Bengals get nothing except maybe a compensation pick.

    You can't be serious.

    Probably a discussion for another thread.

    However, I think it should be considered.

    I think that happens a lot more often than people realize.

    I have no evidence of it, but I do believe I had some type of slight tear in mine 4-5 months before I fully tore it and just had no idea.

    Source confirms tibiofemoral dislocation, ruptured ACL for Bridgewater. "Trainers may have saved his leg and career by quick action."
