Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater was carted off the field with a head injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

After Bridgewater crawled out of his pocket, he ran up the field. He dived for a first down but didn’t move after hitting the lawn. It is unclear what exactly happened. He appeared to have been hit in the lower back by a Bengal defender.

Bridgewater briefly left Denver’s 28-13 win against the Los Angeles Chargers on November 28 with a shin injury sustained in the first quarter. He returned to the game after half-time to help the Broncos achieve a pivotal victory in their quest for the playoffs.

It was the second time this season that he left a game with an injury. He suffered from concussion in the first half against the Baltimore Ravens on October 3, which kept him out for the remainder of the competition.

The Broncos have cleared Bridgewater for their next game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he hasn’t missed a start this season.

Denver acquired the Louisville product from the Carolina Panthers in March. He’s stabilized the Broncos offensive with solid play below the middle, and he’s thrown 2,954 yards, 18 touchdowns, and completed 67.6 percent of his tries in 13 games this week.

Drew Lock will take over the quarterback for the time being. The Missouri alum has attempted just 28 passes without touchdowns and two interceptions this season. He had 3,953 yards of passing and 23 touchdowns in 18 starts from 2019 to 2020.
