EJ Henderson Injury VIDEO: Broken Leg Sidelines Vikings Linebacker

Minnesota Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson suffered a gruesome leg injury in last night's game against the Arizona Cardinals. With just under seven minutes remaining in the game, the Cardinals held a 17-point lead and were trying to run down the clock. Arizona running back Tim Hightower rushed to the right side and headed downfield, where Vikings safety Jamarca Sanford attempted a diving tackle. Hightower broke the tackle and Sanford collided with Henderson, resulting in a ghastly injury. After the game Vikings head coach Brad Childress said Henderson broke his femur and will spend the night in Phoenix.

The Cardinals held on to win, 30-17.
