Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater suffered a concussion after taking a blow to the head from St. Louis Rams cornerback Lamarcus Joyner during the Vikings' 21-18 overtime win Sunday.

Joyner was penalized for the vicious hit, which occurred after Bridgewater had given himself up with a slide early in the fourth quarter.

Veteran clipboard-holder Shaun Hill took over at quarterback while Bridgewater went to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion. The team later announced he suffered a concussion and would not return.

Bridgewater completed 13 of 21 passes for 144 yards, an interception and a rushing touchdown before exiting.

Blair Walsh kicked a 40-yard field goal in overtime to give the Vikings the win.

Joyner can expect a FedEx delivery notifying him that he has been fined for an illegal hit.
