EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater  left practice this afternoon with a non-contact leg injury.

The team announced tonight that Bridgewater suffered a dislocated knee and a full tear of his ACL.

The 23-year old will miss the entire season.

Bridgewater was taken to a hospital by ambulance on Tuesday afternoon shortly after going down in a non-contact drill. His left leg was immobilized in an air cast and players huddled around him in prayer after he crumpled to the turf. 

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer ended practice after Bridgewater went down.

Losing Bridgewater is a crushing loss for a team coming off of an NFC North division title that expected to contend for a Super Bowl appearance this season.

The Vikings have 36-year-old veteran Shaun Hill as Bridgewater's primary backup.
