MANKATO – The intensity elevated during Tuesday afternoon’s practice with the Vikings holding several periods with full contact and live tackling. During 11-on-11 goal-line competition, the first-unit defense excelled with nose tackle Letroy Guion providing two impressive stops in the trenches, the first for a 2-yard loss on Toby Gerhart followed quickly by a stop of Matt Asiata for no gain.

I'm pulling for Childs just on a human level. Whether he can make the team and contribute is another thing. But you have to respect a kid who is working so hard at such a long shot.

Because of the severity of Childs injuries I am hoping there are ways of being able to just stash him away for another year and let him heal, work out, and prepare. From what I have read however Childs would not want any of that. I think he wants to go for it right now. A little scary because it's my understanding that the tendons that connect his knee caps to his shin bones were tore loose. It's the nature of "ruptured tendons". From someone like me with a lack of medical knowledge I would just call that a major bad injuries.
