MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Minnesota Vikings cornerback Charles Gordon was carted off the field in the second quarter against Green Bay after a gruesome ankle injury while he was tackled at the end of a punt return.
Coach Brad Childress said Gordon needed to have a pin inserted into his leg, indicating a bad break, and he's undoubtedly lost for the remainder of the season.
``Sorry to see him go, and go like that,'' Childress said.
Gordon was in the locker room on crutches after the game, wearing hospital scrubs.
Gordon fielded the punt inside the 10, headed upfield and was immediately met by two Packers. As he planted his left leg to change direction, one of the defenders rolled up on the leg and the ankle gave way. He lay motionless on the turf while athletic trainer Eric Sugarman rushed out to see him.
Several teammates took a knee to say a quick prayer, and even Childress went out to check on him.
f Packers rushed over to greet him just before he was driven back to the locker room.
Gordon is in his third season out of Kansas and is the Vikings' top punt returner in addition to being their nickel cornerback.
