Injured rookie wide receiver Greg Childs vowed to return to the Minnesota Vikings on Monday, according to Brian Murphy of the Pioneer Press. Childs tore the patellar tendons in both of his knees during training camp, and has been rehabbing ever since. It's the second time he's torn his right patellar tendon, as it happened to him during his junior year at Arkansas. A fourth-round pick in the 2012 draft, Childs was confident that he will be back and capable of contributing to the Vikings:

"I like to do things that people think other people can't do," he said Monday. "I've got a strong head. You can ask any of the players in here. I come in here attitude good every day and trying to get right, trying to get back on the field. I'm going to do everything I can to step back on the field for next season."
