Celebrating a player getting hurt is uncalled for
Just a thumb. Not like it was his Patulla Oblongata or something.
Those Patulla Oblongata injuries are the worst.

Brett Jones is back. Looks like he will be our starter. It's really happening.
No they moved Jones up to fill in the backup center and guard role. Samia has been practicing with the 1st team

Found an image of the injury online. It's actually pretty nasty.

I saw somewhere where that Elf probably needs surgery. So instead of the 3 weeks Zimmer is saying I would plan on more time off.
Hope he has a speedy recovery...But how he is still in the starting line-up is beyond me. :whistle:

Wait ... what?

Mike Zimmer fed us a line about an injury?

That can't be.

Underestimate this man.

O'neill got his start based on injury, hopefully Samia has similar success. What's weird is Collins was fighting with Dozier all camp for the starting job, you would think he would be next man up at RG.

I didn't think Pat was the back-up center. Almost all reports said it was Dozier.

The Vikings obviously view the guard's positions as not interchangeable. They have guys for one side and even if the other side goes down, they do not move them. Weird.

It is about teamwork. There is no I in team. As really need to have it on all sides.

Not from what I saw. And Elflein clearly has the experience at center too
