Rookie defensive tackle Jaylen Twyman of the Minnesota Vikings was shot four times on Monday, but is expected to make a full recovery, his agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN.
According to a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Twyman was visiting his aunt in Washington, D.C., when he was shot while sitting in a car.
“Wrong place, wrong time,” Rosenhaus told Schefter. “In talking to him today, he’s going to be OK – that’s all that matters. We’re thankful he’s OK. He will make a full recovery.”
According to Rosenhaus, Twyman sustained only superficial exit wounds and will not need surgery.
The Vikings selected Twyman in the sixth round of the 2021 draft with the 199th overall pick.
He played two seasons at Pitt, ranking second in the Atlantic Coast Co in sacks as a sophomore in 2019. He opted out of the 2020 season to prepare for the NFL draft.
