The NFL offseason in full swing. Jaylen Twyman, a sixth round pick by the Minnesota Vikings out of Pittsburgh, was shot on Monday in Washington D.C. Twyman was shot four times but is expected to make a full recovery.
“Wrong place, wrong time,” his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN, which was first to report that Twyman had been shot. “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.”

Twyman walked himself into the hospital following the gun shots Rosenhaus said, but will not need surgery after X-rays were negative for broken bones. He’s expected to be released from the hospital this week with no apparent long-term injuries, Rosenhaus said Tuesday morning.
“We have been in direct contact with Jaylen and his family, and we are extremely thankful Jaylen is expected to make a full recovery,” the Vikings said in a statement. “At this time we will defer any further comment to the proper authorities.”
