Minnesota Vikings rookie safety Luis Shine will undergo 

surgery in London to repair a broken left leg sustained during Sunday's 

game against the New Orleans Saints, coach Kevin O'Connell said. 

Sine will remain in the UK until doctors decide it is safe for him to return to Minnesota.

"It's a very difficult moment for our team,

" said O'Connell. “[Cine is] clearly my personal favorite from day one 

and someone who does everything we asked him to do.

Cine, the Vikings' first-round pick in this year's draft, 

was hampered by a knee injury during training camp and earlier this season. 

He only played two snaps on defense in addition to his special team role.
