Teddy Bridgewater is set to return to his starting quarterback with the Carolina Panthers this weekend after missing a game with a knee injury.
That’s what head coach Matt Rhule revealed on Wednesday, according to The Athletic. The 28-year-old center should therefore be in charge of the team’s offensive unit against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
Bridgewater missed most of the 2016 and 2017 seasons with a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament while wearing the colors of the Vikings.
In 10 games this season, the Floridian has completed 72.1% of his passes for gains of 2,552 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also suffered 7 interceptions. The Panthers have a good 4-7 record for third in the NFL National Association’s Southern Section.
