Week 9 NFL Injury Roundup: Murray, Bridgewater evaluated for concussions
Sunday November 8th, 2015

Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater left Sunday’s game against the Rams in the fourth quarter after a hit to the head and is being evaluated for a concussion.

With Minnesota ahead 18–15 early in the quarter, Bridgewater scrambled to the left to gain five yards. As he slid down, Rams safety Lamarcus Joyner ran up and delivered a hit to his helmet. Bridgewater laid down with his eyes closed before being helped off to the locker room.

Joyner was flagged for unnecessary roughness on the play. After the game, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer called the hit cheap.

Before leaving, Bridgewater was 13 of 21 for 144 yards on the day with an interception.
