The "significant knee injury" that Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater suffered Tuesday sounded bad from the start, and now more details are coming to light.

A 911 call made from the Vikings' Winter Park facility identifies the injury as a "dislocated knee"; you can listen to the call in the media player above.

Bridgewater was taken away in an ambulance. The Vikings said he was sedated and set to have an MRI to reveal any possible further damage to his left knee. Coach Mike Zimmer said he's spoken to the 23-year-old's mom.

Teammates were visibly distraught as they exited the field, some seen cursing. A small group remained behind, huddled around Bridgewater in prayer as team athletic trainers tried to get him stabilized.

All indications were that it was very serious, and the team later confirmed that Bridgewater had dislocated his left knee and announced he'd also torn his ACL.
