Vikings OL Olsen taken off field on stretcher

The Sports NetworkAugust 29, 2013 

Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman Seth Olsen was taken off the field on a stretcher during the second quarter of Thursday's preseason finale against the Tennessee Titans.

Olsen was blocking on a screen pass when he took a knee to the helmet from Titans linebacker Scott Solomon.

With players from both teams kneeling in prayer on either side of Olsen, he was taken off the field on a stretcher and gave a thumbs-up with his left hand on his way to the locker room.

Olsen, in his fourth NFL season, started four games for the Colts last season.
