After going 6/12 on third downs, the Vikings lead the league in first down success rate on offense AND defense.

Remmers is slowly becoming a disappointment. 2 different injuries, and lower back pain takes weeks to fix.

Hands off, Browns.
@KeithBritton86 @AlbertBreer on @BullandFox when asked if #Vikings GM Rick Spielman would be good candidate for #Browns president: "If the Browns were able to make that happen, I think it'd be a home run", says Spielman is Executive of Year candidate, in his mind

Remmers has lost his job as far as I'm concerned. Hill is better, but I still want him to get healthy for depth purposes.

Mike Remmers did not participate on Thursday with his low back injury. Two new injury report additions: Mackensie Alexander (chest) and Shamar Stephen (shoulder) were limited. David Morgan is out of the concussion protocol.

Good news about Morgan.

Remmers is a much better run blocker. Hill's functional strength isn't quite there but he's as solid of a backup as we've ever had. He probably had his worst game in pass protection last week and it still wasn't terrible. Progress!

That doesn't sound that bad... I would be shocked if he was cut unless there is a career ending injury, or a career threatening one.

Yeah, I doubt he is cut. But being out so long, and different injuries, makes me worried. Thank god Hill is doing well.

Morgan was playing quite well. I hope they both can recover.

I'm hopeful for Morgan at least. That's not to say concussions aren't serious, but most players seem to "recover" from them (pass concussion protocol) in a couple of weeks. Low back on a guard is problematic. Hoping he can come back for a stretch run. Not sure what condition he'll be in, though. But at least it would bolster depth.

@LWOS_Vikings Per reports, the #Vikings are ‘livid’ that #Bengals DB George Iloka had his suspension reduced after Andrew Sendejo’s was upheld on a very, very similar hit.

Are they livid? Who, particularly, is livid? :lol:

I agree that it's crap. NFL has no consistency whatsoever with their suspensions and it's a joke. That seems so long ago though. Water under the bridge...take it to the CBA table...
