Minnesota Vikings rookie safety Lewis Caine will undergo surgery in London to repair a fractured left leg during Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints, coach Kevin O'Connell said.

Caine will remain in the United Kingdom until doctors determine it is safe for her to fly back to Minnesota.

O'Connell burst into tears when he announced the details of Caine's injury, which happened with 1:08 remaining in the first quarter of the Vikings' 28-25 victory. As he was stopping on a punt return, Cine's leg bent unnaturally on the playing surface of Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which has been converted from grass to artificial turf for NFL games.

The cine was immediately fitted with an air cast and carried off the field on a cart.

"Very difficult moment for our team," O'Connell said. “[Cine is] obviously a guy who has been my personal favorite from day one and does everything we asked for. He continued to make progress in his early year and really Special teams had a dynamic role for us."

Cine, the Vikings' first-round pick in this year's draft, was slowed during training camp and early this season by a knee injury. He had played only two snaps on defense in addition to his special-teams role.
