Return man Will Blackmon sustained what appeared to be a significant left knee injury on a second-quarter kick return.
Blackmon was down for several minutes after Vikings linebacker Kenny Onatolu tackled him with 4 minutes, 54 seconds remaining in the half. At one point, seven people — two doctors, four athletic trainers and an equipment man — were attending to him as he lay on the field.
When he got up, Blackmon had to be helped to the sideline and couldn’t put any pressure on the leg. After the game, he was on crutches and said he’d been told not to speak with reporters.
