The man who has declared that he’ll be the steal of the draft could have his rookie season stolen from him.
Vikings receiver Greg Childs, a fourth-round pick in April, was carted off the practice field with an apparent leg injury suffered during an intra-squad scrimmage Saturday night.
Per Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com, Childs “screamed in pain” after hitting the ground following an attempt to catch a deep pass. He was “awkwardly twisted” with a defensive back on the way down.
A quartet of Vikings staff members rushed to Childs, who suffered a torn patella tendon in 2010.
After the scrimmage, coach Leslie Frazier said he had no information about Childs’ injury.
