Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in concussion protocol after injury on Sunday

Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater remains in the NFL’s concussion protocol after losing 23-7 to the Baltimore Ravens just before halftime on Sunday.

Asked how Bridgewater’s preparation week would go, coach Vic Fangio told TODAY: “He’s in protocol so the medical people will be in charge of it.”

Bridgewater was injured when he was hit by the Ravens outside linebacker Odafe Owe. Fangio believed that the fine should have been imposed.

Drew Lock was 12 of 21 for 113 yards and an interception in the second half.

“I think that was like the rest of our offense,” Fangio said. “We weren’t good aggressively throughout the game. It can be tough (to go into halftime), obviously, when you’re thrown out there in the cold, but he should be able to do it. “

According to the NFL, Bridgewater must go through a five-step process to return to practice and play. After Bridgewater is approved by Broncos doctors, he must also be cleared by an independent neurological consultant who is approved by the league and the NFLPA and is not affiliated with any club. Until that happens, he cannot practice or play.
