Can it just be a player that was recently injured and had to stop playing but isn't technically on the roster? 'Cause I'd go Phil Loadholt lol

You are almost forced to pick Kalil. Peterson can't do his job properly with the current blocking. Kalil being healthy has a cascading effect on other positions across the OL too.

McKinnon has a boot on today. Might be the Asiata-Hillman show.

Well. Well that's not ideal.
@tlschwerz On @1500ESPN, @MatthewColler asked Treadwell if #Vikings staff has been clear on what he needs to do to get on field "Nope, no they haven't"

I'd guess the answer "be better than the players in front of you" isn't as obvious as it seems to me? lol

@mattvensel Jerick McKinnon said he is feeling better but deferred to the head coach when asked about playing Monday.

It looks like Jayron Kearse will make his first career start on Monday night.

I think given some time Kearse is going to be a great one. Hopefully Cutler won't have time to throw Monday night.

I'm not sure that we are going to se McKinnon start. Norv was saying Hillman is looking good in practice...thoughts?

McKinnon missed practice again. Doubt he plays. Asiata show.

Patterson was back limited. Looks like he might be a go.

No practice for Sendejo. Might be looking like a multi-week absence.

Will be a good test for him, I don't think his tackling is up to par yet.

Minnesota Vikings‏ @Vikings
Coach Zimmer had a minor medical procedure this morning and won't be available for his press conference scheduled for later today.
I hope everything's okay.
