Teddy Bridgewater started Sunday’s game at the New York Jets in place of Tua Tagovailoa, who is nursing a concussion.
Well, Bridgewater lasted only one series and is now out of the game.
Bridgewater was hit on a blitz by Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner as he threw. The pass was flagged as intentional grounding and got the Jets a 2-0 lead.
But more importantly Bridgewater got knocked from the game — at least for now.
Bridgewater went to the blue medical tent and then to the locker room to be evaluated for a head injury and elbow injury.
[Update: Bridgewater has been ruled out of the game. He passed the tests administered by doctors but due to the new adjustment to the concussion protocol and based on what the spotter saw, he was ruled out.]
Of his 14 starts for Denver last season, Bridgewater suffered two concussions.
The Dolphins are now playing seventh-round draft pick Skylar Thompson at quarterback. Their new backup quarterback is receiver Cedrick Wilson.
Thompson, you must know, had 5 TDs without an interception in the preseason
