Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater released a statement after being released from the hospital, where he was recovering from a season-ending knee injury. It’s incredible. Of note, he wrote it and not a public relations advisor or member of a PR staff.
I want to thank the Wilf Family and the entire Vikings organization, all of my teammates, friends, Eric Sugarman and the amazing Vikings athletic training staff and the fans who have sent me messages and wished me well. Your thoughts and prayers mean a lot to me and have helped me in this difficult time. There are great players and great leaders in our locker room who are going to fight to the end to reach the goals we set for 2016. I will be there mentally, physically and in spirit to support them accomplish those goals.
In order to have a testimony, you have to have a test. I come from amazing DNA, I watched my mom fight and win against breast cancer. We will, as a team, attack my rehab with the same vigor and energy. My faith is strong, my faith is unwavering and my vision is clear. My purpose will not be denied.
There’s no doubt that Bridgewater is an incredible person, but this seals it.
