Vikings RB Out

Vikings running back Doug Chapman was admitted to a Minneapolis area hospital in critical condition on Oct. 22.

When Doug Chapman was injured in Sunday's loss to the Jets, the initial diagnosis was a hip pointer. However, Chapman woke up the following night with severe pain his abdomen and, after consulting with team officials, was rushed to Fairveiw-Southdale Hospital.

Chapman was diagnosed with internal bleeding and, upon his arrival, was listed in critical condition. Early fears were that the bleeding could be coming from a lacerated kidney, which could have been life-threatening.

Those fears were put to rest as it was discovered the bleeding wasn't coming from Chapman's kidneys and doctors were able to stop the bleeding. While Chapman is expected to make a full recovery, he put on injured reserve.
