My immediate thoughts are about the following...
Guard Alex Boone (concussion, knee, shoulder) and linebacker Eric Kendricks (concussion) have been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions.

Even if Jeremiah Sirles shows he's better than Boone, the OL simply can't handle any more injuries.

Kendricks is becoming a stud and he's one of the leaders on the defense. This is big loss. :(

Ugh. Great. Who is Kendricks's backup?

The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

Kendricks has become so some much reliable then Barr. Barr has fallen of the grid. Im going to say he is hurt but all we got left. We are going to have Norv and Zim playing out there soon.

Vikings might have a fighting chance at home. Not much confidence in a win right now the way everything is going.

Don't hate on my Buckeyes. Some of the best Vikings went to Ohio State.
Including now, HOF WR #80 Cris Carter

Greenway, lamur, and their rookie from Missouri will have to play more and step up I thinks.

As for Boone imo he hasn't been too impressive so for him it's next man up I think.

You mean the second, third and 5th rounds of the draft.

:wallbang:

What a brutal way to lose at home!
