Minnesota Vikings rookie Lewis Cine was carted off the field after suffering a gruesome injury to his left leg

Minnesota Vikings rookie safety Lewis Cine suffered a gruesome left leg injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Cine was taken off the field on a cart, quickly ruled out for the rest of the game and transported to a hospital for further evaluation, according to the NFL Network broadcast.

The Vikings’ first-round pick in this year’s draft, Cine was slowed during training camp and early this season by a knee injury and had thus far been limited to special teams.

Cine suffered the injury while covering a punt with 1:08 left in the first quarter Sunday. Replays at the stadium showed Cine’s leg bending unnaturally. Vikings doctors quickly placed an air bag over the leg before he was carted off the field.
