Gordon fielded the punt inside the Vikings 10, headed upfield and was immediately met by two Packers. As he planted his left leg to change direction, one of the Packers 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 coach Brad Childress went out to check on him.
Gordon had to lifted by several Vikings staff members on to the cart, and a host of 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.
