Ex-Viking Chris Doleman injured in snowmobile crash


Vikings all-time great defensive end Chris Doleman was injured when he was tossed from his snowmobile at the 20th annual Minnesota Vikings Arctic Blast over the weekend, KFGO reports.

The report says Doleman may have suffered a mild concussion.

Doleman played 154 career games for the Vikings and racked up 150.5 sacks, the fourth most in NFL history. He was inducted into the Vikings' Ring of Honor in 2011.

This year's snowmobile rally, which raises money for the Vikings Children's Fund, was held in Thief River Falls – home of the Arctic Cat manufacturing plant.

All riders took a safety training class before taking off on the sleds.

Former Viking running back Darrin Nelson, per the Grand Forks Herald, joked that former Viking safety Carl Lee had a "conservative" riding style. The joke prompted Lee to say that "the objective is not to get hurt."

According to Vikings.com, Doleman wasn't one of the past or present players scheduled to attend, but he was there nonetheless. The players scheduled to attend were:
