K.J. Osborn Leaves Vikings Game at Falcons with Concussion


ATLANTA — The scene was scary and supportive.

Vikings receiver K.J. Osborn made an incredible adjustment to the football and secured the catch for 13 yards after a bobble. As he was going to the ground he was hit from the front by Dee Alford and the back by Jeff Okudah. Alford's helmet hit Osborn's facemask.

Osborn was motionless on the field after the collision.

Receivers Brandon Powell and Jordan Addison were near Osborn. Addison waved to the Vikings sideline as left guard Dalton Risner ran forward to check on Osborn.

Multiple carts were driven on the field as Vikings and Falcons players took a knee. Every player who was dressed out and many who weren't left the bench area to show their support for Osborn.

Medical personnel tended to Osborn, who sat upright on one of the carts as teammates came by to shake his hand and give him hugs.

Justin Jefferson, who is on Injured Reserve, was among the players who went over and hugged Osborn, who was ruled out of the game with a concussion.

Osborn was the second Vikings player to leave the game with a concussion in the first half. Rookie Jaren Hall left his first career start early in the first quarter after a hit stopped his run at the Atlanta 1-yard line.
