Bad news today out of Vikings camp - QB Teddy Bridgewater suffered a non-contact knee injury. The team cancelled practice after just 25 minutes, players were seen praying around Bridgewater and looked very upset and stressed, some even slamming their helmets. An ambulance came to the practice facility.BREAKING: Teddy Bridgewater suffered dislocated knee & completely torn ACL. No nerve damage.

Shaun Hill is currently the backup QB on the roster. He filled in for Matthew Stafford in 2010 and Sam Bradford in 2014, when they went down with injuries. He threw for 24 touchdowns and 19 interceptions during those 18 starts, gaining over 4,300 yards and completed better than 62% of his 645 attempts.
The Vikings will have some options, should they want to go a different direction. They can trade for Colin Kaepernick , Mark Sanchez or sign recently cut Zach Mettenberger .
No matter what happens in Minnesota, without Teddy Bridgewater, Adrian Peterson, Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell and Kyle Rudolph all take a hit in fantasy football. Jerick McKinnon could see a bunch more carries.
