Vikings head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman released a statement Friday saying Teddy Bridgewater has already started rehabbing his left knee.

Bridgewater's surgery was Thursday and the Vikings are "very optimistic" that he'll make a strong recovery.

"Teddy Bridgewater had his left knee surgically repaired yesterday," Sugarman said. "The procedure was performed by Dr. Dan Cooper at the Carrell Clinic in Dallas, TX. The knee dislocation resulted in Teddy needing a multi-ligament reconstruction. I was able to be present in Dallas, support Teddy and observe the entire procedure. The repair was excellent and gives Teddy every reason to be very optimistic.

"Teddy already began the rehab process yesterday, will return to Minnesota to continue on the road to recovery very soon and looks forward to getting back on the field."

Bridgewater tweeted Thursday: "Thanks for the thoughts & prayers. I'll be back!"
