LJ Bergman departs Giants–Vikings game



Line judge Jeff Bergman was seen leaving the field on a cart after the end of the third quarter of the Giants–Vikings game in Detroit. He left the field on his feet with assistance, but was then was wheeled off to the locker room. Bergman was not hit on the play; either a pulled muscle or cramp has knocked him out. The remaining six-man crew will readjust to cover the missing official.

Jeff Triplette was the crew chief.
