Player Outlook
In August, Bridgewater joined Detroit, where he'll be the No. 2 quarterback behind Jared Goff. He has limited Fantasy value and is not worth drafting in most leagues. In 2022, Bridgewater was the No. 2 quarterback in Miami, but he struggled with injuries and was unable to help at times when Tua Tagovailoa was hurt. Bridgewater appeared in three games where he attempted at least 19 passes, and he scored more than 12 Fantasy points just once over that span.

  • Lions' Teddy Bridgewater: Plans to retire after season

    Bridgewater said in an interview with Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press posted Saturday that he plans to retire after the 2023 season. After joining Detroit on a one-year, $3 million deal this offseason, Bridgewater has seen light usage behind starting quarterback Jared Goff. The 31-year-old's lone appearance of the season came back in Week 5, when he took three snaps at the tail end of a win over Carolina. Barring Goff missing time due to injury over the final three games or getting rested in Week 18 if the Lions' playoff position is solidified, Bridgewater looks as though he may have already seen the last of his extended NFL action. Since entering the league as a first-round pick of the Vikings in 2014, Bridgewater has completed 66.4 percent of his passes for 15,120 yards, 75 touchdowns and 47 interceptions while adding 844 yards and 11 scores on the ground across 79 career games with Minnesota, New Orleans, Carolina, Denver, Miami and Detroit.

  • Lions' Teddy Bridgewater: Gets Saturday start

    Bridgewater is slated to start Saturday's preseason game against the Jaguars, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Per Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site, coach Dan Campbell noted this week that he didn't plan on playing the team's starters, so Bridgewater will have an opportunity to solidify his standing behind top QB Jared Goff, with Nate Sudfeld and Adrian Martinez on hand to follow Bridgewater on Saturday.

  • Lions' Teddy Bridgewater: Joins up with Detroit

    The Lions and Bridgewater agreed to terms of a contract Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Behind Detroit's starting quarterback Jared Goff, there previously wasn't much experience on the depth chart between six-year pro Nate Sudfeld, 2023 third-round pick Hendon Hooker (knee) and rookie UDFA Adrian Martinez. Bridgewater himself has 65 starts for five different teams in his career, including two for the Dolphins last year. In five appearances overall in 2022, he completed 49 of 79 passes (62 percent) for 683 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. Bridgewater will slot in as Goff's top backup moving forward.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Suits up Sunday

    Bridgewater (finger/knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bills. Bridgewater approached the Dolphins' postseason opener listed as questionable after practicing in a limited fashion this past week as he continues to work his way back from a dislocated pinkie issue on his throwing hand. While Bridgewater is in uniform against Buffalo on Sunday, he's slated to back up Skylar Thompson, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. Meanwhile Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) -- who last saw game action in Week 16 -- is still sidelined.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Expected to suit up as backup

    Bridgewater (finger/knee) is expected to be active for Sunday's playoff opener against the Bills, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The signal-caller, who continues to work his way back from a dislocated pinkie issue on his throwing hand, is listed as questionable for the contest after practicing in a limited fashion this week, but Schefter relays that Bridgewater is in line to back up Skylar Thompson on Sunday, with Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) still out. Official confirmation of Bridgewater's availability will arrive when the Dolphins' inactives are posted ahead of the team's 1:00 ET kickoff.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Remains limited at practice

    Bridgewater (finger/knee) remained limited at practice Thursday. While Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's wild-card round game against the Bills, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com relayed Wednesday via coach Mike McDaniel that the Dolphins were preparing for Skylar Thompson to draw the start at QB for the team this weekend, with Bridgewater still working his way back from a dislocated pinkie on his throwing hand. Look for added details regarding Bridgewater's status to arrive Friday, but chances are he'll end up being officially listed as questionable by Miami.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Active, but won't start

    Bridgewater (finger/knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets. While starting in place of Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) in last week's loss to the Patriots, Bridgewater exited early with a dislocated right pinky finger. Because of that injury along with a lingering knee issue, Bridgewater never managed anything more than limited participation in practices Wednesday through Friday, prompting head coach Mike McDaniel to name third-string quarterback Skylar Thompson the Week 18 starter with Tagovailoa still sidelined. McDaniel noted, however, that Bridgewater progressed from the dislocated finger faster than anticipated, so he'll at least get the opportunity to dress and could even play if Thompson struggles or exits early with an injury more serious than Bridgewater's. The Dolphins also brought up another quarterback (Mike Glennon) from the practice squad and are making him active Sunday, so it's unclear if Glennon or Bridgewater will represent Thompson's direct backup.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Will be backup Week 18, if active

    Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said Bridgewater (finger/knee) has a chance to be active Sunday against the Jets, but he would be available only in a backup capacity behind starter Skylar Thompson, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN reports. McDaniel confirmed that Thompson will draw his second start of the season Week 18 with Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) ruled out and with Bridgewater having been limited in practice this week while he recovers from a dislocated pinky finger on his throwing hand. Bridgewater has reportedly made substantial progress in his recovery, but he clearly isn't 100 percent healthy, given that he almost certainly have gotten the starting nod over Thompson for this must-win game if that were the case. If Bridgewater isn't cleared to handle the backup role, the Dolphins will likely elevate Mike Glennon from the practice squad to serve as Thompson's understudy.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Remains limited in practice

    Bridgewater (finger/knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Though Bridgewater's limited listing doesn't represent any change from Wednesday, observers during the media-access portion of Thursday's session suggested the quarterback was able to do more than he did a day ago. Most notably, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post relays that Bridgewater was throwing the football significantly farther than he did Wednesday, indicating that the veteran signal-caller is still in play for the starting assignment Sunday against the Jets with head coach Mike McDaniel having all but ruled Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) from returning to the lineup Week 18. The Dolphins will likely wait until after Friday's practice to decide whether Bridgwater or rookie Skylar Thompson will get the starting nod this weekend.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Status hinges on gripping ability

    Bridgewater, who was diagnosed with a dislocated right pinky finger after exiting last week's 23-21 loss to the Patriots, hasn't been ruled out from starting Sunday's regular-season finale with the Jets, though his playing status will depend on whether he can grip the ball well enough to comfortably and accurately throw the football, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Dolphins are proceeding with Bridgewater and Skylar Thompson as their options at quarterback this week with a playoff spot at stake, as head coach Mike McDaniel has already dismissed the possibility of Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) starting Sunday even if the signal-caller clears the five-step protocol before the weekend. When healthy, Bridgewater has worked ahead of Thompson, but before being handed another starting nod, Bridgewater will need to prove during practices Wednesday through Friday that his finger injury isn't an issue. If Bridgewater fails to make enough progress as the week rolls along and isn't fit to start or dress as Thompson's backup, the Dolphins will likely elevate recent practice-squad signee Mike Glennon to step in as the understudy to Thompson.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Broken finger likely

    Bridgewater likely sustained a broken finger on his right hand during Sunday's loss at Miami, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. With Tua Tagovailoa out indefinitely due to a concussion, Bridgewater got the start at quarterback for the Dolphins on Sunday, completing 12 of 19 passes for 161 yards, one touchdown and one interception while gaining six yards on his only carry before his exit in the second half. It's unclear if Bridgewater will be able to play through the injury, but Skylar Thompson is on hand in the event the former joins Tagovailoa on the sideline.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Hurts finger Sunday

    Bridgewater was forced out of Sunday's game against the Patriots with a right finger injury. Before exiting the contest, Bridgewater completed 12 of 19 pass attempts for 161 yards with a TD and a pick. In his absence, Skylar Thompson is in at quarterback for the Dolphins, with Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) inactive Sunday.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Set to start versus Patriots

    With Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) out Sunday against the Patriots, Bridgewater will draw the start at QB for the Dolphins in Week 17, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports. The report indicates that Tagovailoa continues to progress through the concussion protocol, but he'll be out this week, at a minimum, with coach Mike McDaniel noting that the quarterback will continue to be evaluated on a "day-to-day basis." This Sunday, Bridgewater will be facing a New England defense that is allowing an average of 213.1 passing yards per game to date, but working in his favor from a fantasy perspective is that he'll have a pair of explosive wideouts (Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle) to throw to, while the Patriots are dealing with some injury issues in their secondary.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Poised for Week 17 start

    Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said Wednesday that the Dolphins are planning to have Bridgewater start Sunday's game against Patriots after Tua Tagovailoa was diagnosed with a concussion, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports. Tagovailoa is following the NFL's five-step concussion protocol for the second time this season, after he previously suffered a brain injury in the Dolphins' Week 4 contest against the Bengals before going on to miss the team's next two games. Given Tagovailoa's recent history, the team will presumably proceed cautiously with him and prepare Bridgewater to make his second start of the season. Bridgewater last saw game action in relief of Skylar Thompson in the Dolphins' loss to the Vikings in Week 6, when he completed 23 of 34 pass attempts for 329 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Potential Week 17 starter

    Bridgewater is expected to receive the majority of the quarterback reps with the first-team offense during the Dolphins' first Week 17 practice Wednesday after head coach Mike McDaniel confirmed Monday that Tua Tagovailoa entered the concussion protocol following Sunday's loss to the Packers, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. McDaniel noted that it's too soon for the Dolphins to name a starting quarterback for this weekend's game in New England, but at this point, Bridgewater may be trending toward the assignment, per Furones. The veteran signal-caller had been dealing with a knee injury in recent weeks, but Bridgewater was in uniform this past Sunday as Tagovailoa's backup.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Won't suit up again

    Bridgewater (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the 49ers. Bridgewater is now slated to miss his sixth consecutive contest as a result of the knee injury he sustained back in Week 6 against the Vikings. Rookie Skylar Thompson is in line to serve as Tua Tagovailoa's primary backup quarterback this weekend in San Fransisco.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Limited at practice Wednesday

    Bridgewater (knee) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game at San Francisco, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Bridgewater has been held out of five consecutive games with a knee injury, but his participation at practice signals that he may be nearing a return from his extended absence. Were the veteran signal caller to miss Week 13 at the 49ers though, rookie seventh-rounder Skylar Thompson would once again be set to serve as Tua Tagovailoa's primary backup.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Not available for backup duties

    Bridgewater (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, is expected to be inactive this week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Bridgewater was a limited participant in Friday's practice after a chronic knee issue flared up on him, and while the injury isn't considered a serious one, the Dolphins are inclined to err on the side of caution with the veteran signal-caller by keeping him out this week. Rookie seventh-round pick Skylar Thompson will likely step in for Bridgewater as the backup to starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Takes step forward in protocol

    Bridgewater (concussion) will be on the field for limited, non-contact participation at Thursday's practice, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Bridgewater was present for Wednesday's practice, but he didn't take part in any on-field work and was instead limited to light aerobic activities off to the side. His ability to mix into non-contact drills suggests he's advanced to either the third or fourth phase of the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. Head coach Mike McDaniel has already ruled out the possibility of Bridgewater starting a second consecutive game this weekend against the Vikings even though top quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) won't play, but if he's able to put in a full practice Friday, Bridgewater could be cleared to serve as rookie Skylar Thompson's backup Sunday.

  • Dolphins' Teddy Bridgewater: Departs Sunday's game

    Bridgewater suffered an elbow injury and is under evaluation for a concussion during Sunday's game at the Jets. On the play in which Bridgewater was called for intentional grounding while getting taken to the ground by Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner in his own end zone, the quarterback visited the sideline tent before making his way to the locker room. Per Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald, Bridgewater was accompanied by an unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant, but it remains to be seen if he'll be ruled out. Rookie seventh-round pick Skylar Thompson took over under center with Tua Tagovailoa already in the concussion protocol.
