Vikings RB Bishop Sankey Has Torn ACL, Out For Season


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that an MRI on Vikings RB Bishop Sankey’s knee revealed a torn ACL, which means he’ll miss the entire 2017 season.

The Vikings will likely place Sankey on injured reserve and add someone to their roster in the coming days.

Sankey, 24, was taken with the No. 54 overall pick in 2014. He was in the third year of his four-year, $3.843 million contract and set to make a base salary of $769,408 in 2016 when he was cut loose coming out of the preseason last year.

Sankey played for the Patriots and Chiefs last year before eventually signing on to the Vikings’ practice squad. Minnesota brought him back on a future/reserve contract this past January.

In 2015, Sankey appeared in 13 games for the Titans and ran for 193 yards on 47 carries (4.1 YPC) to go along with 14 receptions for 139 yards receiving and two total touchdowns.
