Minnesota Vikings linebacker Erin Henderson left Thursday's practice after apparently injuring his left ankle/Achilles. 

Henderson was in coverage during team drills, running towards the sidelines before easing up and limping. Henderson was visibly distraught initially, but had the ankle taped up and returned for a few reps. He ultimately walked off under his own power before practice ended with trainer Eric Sugarman.

Coach Leslie Frazier said Henderson was stepped on and should be fine, adding the early exit was precautionary.
