Greg Childs injures both knees
Childs, drafted in the fourth round of the 2012 draft, was injured Saturday night after he jumped to catch a ball thrown slightly behind him. The ball bounced away and Childs landed awkwardly.
The 6-foot-3 Childs initially clutched his right leg, but a team of medical officials also examined his left leg. Eventually, four men lifted him, his legs fully extended, onto a cart.
Childs also tore the patella tendon in his right knee in October 2010. The Vikings had been excited about his size and potential.
