Vikings rookie Jaylen Twyman’s real condition after being shot 4 times in Washington
Twyman, who was in a car when the incident happened, was visiting his aunt in the area. According to his agent, he is going to be fine and is expected to make a “full recovery.” However, no specific timeline has been provided.
Per Schefter’s report, there are exit wounds on Twyman, but he won’t need surgery. X-rays also came back negative, which is a great news for his family and the Vikings.
“Wrong place, wrong time,” Twyman’s agen Drew Rosenhaus said. “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.”
Jaylen Twyman was the Vikings’ last pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Taken in the sixth round at 199th overall, the defensive tackle played for the Pittsburgh Panthers in college and led the team in sacks with 10.5 in 2019. Unfortunately, he didn’t play in 2020.
Hopefully, Twyman will be able to heal fast and rejoin the Vikings as they try to improve on their 7-9 record in the 2020 season. The incident will only make it difficult for the 21-year-old to crack the roster, but the good news is he should have enough time to recover and compete for a spot on the roster.
