The Minnesota Vikings received a huge blow to their season before it has really gotten a chance to begin.

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater suffered a “significant” left knee injury in Tuesday’s practice. Coach Mike Zimmer told reporters that “it doesn’t look good right now,” though the severity of the injury hasn’t officially been determined.

Bridgewater is still undergoing tests at a hospital, according to USA Today.

ESPN reported that the injury occurred after a non-contact play. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

According to the Pioneer Press, Bridgewater might have suffered a dislocated knee. WTXF-TV reported that Bridgewater’s knee was “flailing around.”

All-in-all, it doesn’t look good for Bridgewater or the Vikings right this moment and it would be a miracle if he didn’t have to miss the rest of the season.
