Vikings rookie receiver Greg Childs catches ball with arms wrapped around defender (Video)

Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Greg Childs made an impression during a recent practice in training camp as he caught an underthrown pass by wrapping his arms around a defender and trapping the ball against his defender's back.

The ball was underthrown by quarterback Joe Webb, but Childs came back for the ball and managed to trap it on defensive back Brandon Burton's helmet. Childs managed to hang onto the football while bringing Burton down to the ground at the same time.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we'll have any follow up highlights from Childs anytime soon. ESPN has reported that Childs suffered patella tendon tears in both knees on a play during Saturday night's practice and will soon be undergoing surgery.
