Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater tried to run for a first down but had to be carted off after a scary scene in Denver left him looking out cold.
Teddy Bridgewater won the starting quarterback job for the Denver Broncos this offseason and has proven to be the solid veteran anyone should’ve expected. However, he was part of a scary scene in Denver on Sunday as his team hosted the Bengals.
In a close dogfight with Cincinnati in the second half, Bridgewater was trying to overcome a slight deficit. With the play breaking down, the quarterback took off to try and get a first down and dove past the line to gain.
When he did so, however, Bridgewater landed awkwardly and was left motionless on the turf, seemingly knocked out cold. The Broncos had to bring out the injury cart for him to take the quarterback off the field.
