Minnesota Vikings Preseason: Bishop Sankey Suffers Injury Against Buffalo Bills

He suffered what appears to be a knee injury in the third quarter

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Just after the second half of the Minnesota Vikings’ preseason opener got underway, the Vikings had another player suffer what appears to be a significant injury.

Running back Bishop Sankey, who had looked good in his time on the field against the Buffalo Bills in this evening’s opener, went down with what appears to be a right knee injury and needed to be helped off of the field.

The injury came at the conclusion of a nice 14-yard run for Sankey. That was the longest run of the evening for the Vikings. Sankey had also caught four passes for 15 yards on the evening.

The injury appears to be to Sankey’s right knee, and he needed to be helped off of the field by the Vikings’ training staff.

This comes on the heels of a shoulder injury suffered by cornerback Trae Waynes on the second play of the game. Still no update on how seriously Waynes might be injured.

When we get further updates on the injury to running back Bishop Sankey, we will bring it to you right here.
