Sankey underwent surgery on his torn ACL last week and has begun rehab, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Sankey was waived and reverted to injured reserve following the tearing of his right ACL in the Vikings' preseason opener. With rehab already beginning, Sankey should be able to recover in time for the start of the 2018 season, but a serious injury like this could put his future in the NFL in serious jeopardy.
Sankey (knee) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Sankey tore his right ACL in the Vikings' preseason opener and was waived two days later. Fortunately, he should have plenty of time to recover in time for the 2018 campaign. Second-year running back Bronson Hill was signed to take his place on the roster.
Sankey (knee) was waived-injured by the Vikings on Saturday.
Sankey will presumably clear waivers and revert to the Vikings' injured reserve. The team picked up running back Bronson Hill in a corresponding move.
Sankey sustained a torn ACL during Thursday's preseason win at Buffalo, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Vikings held out Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon on Thursday, providing Sankey with a window in which to impress the coaching staff. Sankey received four carries for 14 yards and gathered in four of five targets for 15 yards before suffering a knee injury, which has been revealed to be season-ending. Injured reserve is almost certainly in the 2014 second-round pick's future.
Sankey (knee) was seen on crutches after Thursday's preseason game and will be sent for an MRI on Friday, Andrew Krammer of The Star Tribune reports.
Sankey got into the mix Thursday with Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon sitting out, but he only saw four carries before suffering the knee injury. He had a brace on his knee in addition to being on crutches in the Minnesota locker room following Thursday's tilt. Friday's MRI should shed some more light on the exact nature of Sankey's knee injury.
