Twyman’s wounds were superficial, so he did not require surgery.
“Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Jaylen Twyman was one of several victims wounded during a shooting in Washington, D.C., today,” the Vikings said in a statement. “We have been in direct contact with Jaylen and his family, and we are extremely thankful Jaylen is expected to make a full recovery. At this time, we will defer any further comment to the proper authorities.”
The Vikings drafted Twyman in the sixth round.
