Teddy Bridgewater Injury: Panthers QB Exits After Brutal Hit Warrants Ejection

Atlanta's Charles Harris was the player ejected


Teddy Bridgewater is going to be a bit sore in the morning.

The Carolina Panthers’ starting quarterback exited the game in the third quarter of the team’s “Thursday Night Football” contest against the Atlanta Falcons.

He was ruled as “questionable to return” after clearing concussion protocol, per team reporter Myles Simmons.

Bridgewater’s injury came after a brutal hit from Falcons pass-rusher Charles Harris. Harris was ejected for the hit on Bridgewater, who was going to the ground with his back turned to Harris, and was seen having trainers rub his neck on the FOX broadcast.

P.J. Walker replaced Bridgewater for the remainder of the drive, which concluded with a field goal to cut Carolina’s deficit to 19-17. Bridgewater was seen throwing passes on the sideline shortly after, but did not return for the following drive.
