According to Tom Pelissero of 1500 ESPN Radio, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Greg Childs went down screaming during practice after suffering what looked like a leg injury.
“Greg Childs screamed in pain as he hit the ground and left the field on a cart after suffering an apparent leg injury in the Minnesota Vikings’ practice on Saturday night inside Blakeslee Stadium,” reported Pelissero.
“The rookie receiver was leaping for a deep ball thrown by McLeod Bethel-Thompson when he hit the ground hard and untouched, with cornerback Corey Gatewood trailing the play. Childs’ left knee appeared to take the brunt of the impact, but he initially grabbed his right knee as he rolled to his side.
“Childs immediately began screaming and four members of the Vikings’ medical staff, including head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman, rushed to his side. He eventually was lifted onto a cart and left the field, raising a hand briefly to acknowledge fans yelling to him from the stands,” wrote Pelissero.
Childs has been impressive at times during camp so far, it would be unfortunate if ends up missing the entire season. We’ll just hope and pray this is nothing more than a scare.
