After suffering a head injury on Sunday (December 19), Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has been released from a Denver-area hospital.
On Monday (December 20), the Broncos announced on Twitter that Bridgewater "is doing well," and "will enter the NFL’s concussion protocol."
The quarterback was carted off the Broncos' field after he sustained a head injury when diving for a first down in the third quarter of the Bronco's Sunday game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
According to Yahoo! Sports, when Bridgewater "was in the air he was shoved forward and landed hard on his shoulder, neck, and head. He dropped the ball when he hit the turf and was motionless for a few moments."
While the Broncos announced during Sunday's game that Bridgewater had "movement in his extremities," they said he was being taken to a hospital as a precaution.
Following the game, the team tweeted that the QB would "stay at the hospital overnight for further evaluation," but noted that everything had "checked out well."
Bridgewater's latest concussion marks his second of the season.
