Packers return man Blackmon injured


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Green Bay Packers kick returner Will Blackmon had to be helped off the field with an apparent left leg injury in the second quarter against Minnesota on Monday night.

Blackmon was injured after the Vikings' second touchdown. He cut to his right and his left knee appeared to buckle as he tried to head up field. Blackmon remained on the turf for several minutes and was taken on a cart to the locker room for examination.

There was no immediate word on the nature of his injury.

Blackmon is the team's top punt and kick returner. He is tied with Desmond Howard atop the Packers career list with three punt return touchdowns.
