Charles Gordon Becomes the Joe Theisman of Punt Returners

Josh Alper

by Josh AlperIn the first half of today's 28-27 win over the Packers, the Vikings lost punt returner Charles Gordon to a nasty leg injury. Gordon fielded a Derrick Frost punt and was immediately snowed by Desmond Bishop of the Packers. His ankle got rolled up under Bishop and, well, the lower part of the leg isn't supposed to turn quite as far as Gordon's did.

Here's a video, courtesy of Pro Football Talk. A warning, if you're not the sort of person who thought "When Harry Met Sally" was a bit too violent, don't watch it.
