“Wrong place, wrong time,” Twyman’s agent Drew Rosenhaus tells Schefter. “In talking to him today, he’s going to be OK – that’s all that matters. We’re thankful he’s OK. He will make a full recovery.”

According to Schefter, the Vikings have been apprised of the situation involving Twyman, who was in a car when he was shot.

Schefter adds that Twyman suffered superficial exit wounds and will not need surgery. Beyond that, X-rays were negative and the anticipation is that he will make a full recovery.

Twyman, 21, was selected with the No. 199 overall pick in the sixth round by the Vikings. He agreed to a four-year, $3.7 million contract with the Vikings.

During his college career at Pitt, Twyman recorded 57 tackles, 11 sacks, and two pass deflections over the course of 21 games.

We wish him the best and a full recovery from here.
