Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Greg Childs was carted off the practice field Saturday after suffering an apparent knee injury, according to a report from Dan Wiederer.

The Vikings selected Childs in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft and were possibly counting on him opening the season as a starter while Jerome Simpson serves a three-game suspension. While the extent of the injury is still unknown, initial reports say Childs suffered significicant injuries to both knees and will likely miss the 2012 season.

The injury would be the second major knee injury Childs has suffered in less than two years. He tore his patellar tendon in October of 2010 while he was playing at Arkansas.
