Speaking to the press on Monday, Broncos head couch Vic Fangio said Bridgewater has been released from the hospital and is now recovering at home.
“He’s been released. He’s home, and he’s resting comfortably. He sounded a lot better this morning than he did last night. Last night, he just sounded really tired,” Fangio said.
Bridgewater now enters the NFL’s concussion protocol, which means he could be out from a number of weeks.
