Nasty injury for Vikings' Gordon

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota punt returner Charles Gordon was just taken off the field on a cart after what appeared to be a nasty, serious injury to his left leg.
Gordon's left leg seemed to give way as he was tackled by the Packers' Desmond Bishop at the Vikings' 10-yard line. The injury was announced only as an ankle injury, but judging by the speed the Vikings' medical staff raced on the field, I think it's safe to say it's pretty serious.
Aundrae Allison likely will return punts the rest of the way, and Benny Sapp will replace Gordon as the Vikings' nickel back.
We'll update you when we have more information on Gordon's condition.
