Broncos’ Teddy Bridgewater carted off field with head injury after taking scary hit vs. Bengals
Bridgewater was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for further examination
Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was injured and sidelined during their 15th week losing 15-10 against the Cincinnati Bengals. In the third scene, the veteran caller jumped to the right and jumped forward trying to pick up the floor first, but was hit on the back and fell on his head.
Medical personnel removed Bridgewater’s face mask and he was tied to a cart. The Broncos announced Bridgewater was in full swing and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital as a warning of what the team described as a head injury.
After the game, Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Bridgewater would stay in hospital overnight for a re-examination and that everything had gone well so far.
Here’s the play Teddy Bridgewater was hurt on.
The cart is coming out for him.
Thoughts and prayers up for the #Broncos QB 🙏

Drew Lock replaced Bridgewater under the center, threw a touchdown pass to lead Denver on his first drive but stopped all the way.
Bridgewater completed 12 of 22 passes in 98 yards before leaving the game. The 29-year-old is in the middle of his first season with the Broncos after spending last year with the Carolina Panthers.
