Cine has shown a ton of potential to begin his early career. It’s unfortunate he’s suffered such a serious injury, as the Vikings could use his talent in the secondary. It is alarming that he must remain in the U.K. to undergo surgery. Even so, it’s likely for the best. Lewis Cine may have to remain in London for a short time before getting cleared to fly back to Minnesota.
As for the Vikings, the coaching staff must find a way to replace Cine. It’ll be hard to do, but it’s necessary for the franchise to compete in the NFC North. Keep an eye on Lewis Cine, as more information about his health status should come to light. Look for him to be out for the remainder of the season and bounce back next year.
