Done. Crying or Very sad

Two sources tell ESPN 1500 Twin Cities that Vikings rookie WR Greg Childs is "almost surely" done for the year after suffering a "significant" injury to both knees during Saturday's camp practice.

The Vikings fear Childs tore both patellar tendons. It's a devastating, career-threatening blow for a player who labored through a patellar tendon tear as a senior in college and fell at least two rounds in the draft because of it. The Vikings were hoping Childs would secure the first-team split end job in suspended starter Jerome Simpson's three-game absence, but they'll have to turn elsewhere now. They may explore the free agent or trade market at receiver. The organization has soured on Michael Jenkins, and remains desperate for a wideout capable of stretching the field.

I picked him up in a few leagues so I'm really unhappy to hear this. Really sucks for the kid.

Quote :
According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Vikings are operating under the assumption WR Greg Childs (torn patellar tendons) "may never play a meaningful down in the NFL."

Poor kid.
