Quarterback Gus Frerotte suffered a cut on his left hand in the fourth quarter that required two stitches. Vikings coach Brad Childress said the amount of blood made it look worse than it was and that his quarterback is OK.
“I’m told it was a pretty good bleeder or it squirted,” Childress said. “It looked way worse than it was. He’s fine. He had to call his wife and make sure she knew he didn’t have to have his hand cut off.”
Frerotte was upset after Titans defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch delivered a helmet hit to his groin area earlier in the fourth quarter. Frerotte called it a dirty play. He had Vikings head athletic trainer Eric Sugerman call his wife, Ann, to let her know he was OK.
“His wife wasn’t worried about his hand, she was worried about his you-know-whats,” Childress said. “He’s got three children already and doesn’t really need any more.”
