Yeah, but we just had a bye and he practiced one day before going DNP. That's not good. We need his experience vs. Brees.

I would think he plays. Either way I'm comfortable with Mac. He's been pretty solid this year.

Newman upgraded to limited on Friday and Questionable to play.

Griffen upgraded to full participation and is likely to play Sunday.

A little meaningless given the source but Rhodes said Sendejo should be fine for Sunday. Saw him today.

Let's hope. Any other casualties? Stephen went down, can't recall any others that didn't come back in like Rhodes.

Zimmer said Sendejo is doing a lot better. Will send the play into the league.

There was a photo of him running up to Harrison and hugging him after the game. It was in that staging area where fans are all around between the field and locker room. Hope he's good to go, I'd imagine we won't know until Friday or so.

Adam Thielen was out today with a lower back injury. When I asked him about it after practice, he said, "I'm good." Also a non participant was Shamar Stephen (back, ankle).

Stephen: OUT
Thielen, Alexander, Sendejo: Questionable

Zimmer expects Sendejo to play but he still has to pass protocol. He practiced in full today.

Weird that you can practice when you haven't passed protocol. Sounds like Jaleel will need to step up this weekend.

I know. I don't get it.

I saw a quote that he's nervous. Not surprising. I want him to get more snaps. I wonder how many he'll see (especially with B-Rob sometimes lining up inside on passing downs). I'd love him to make an impact.

Forgot the NFL got rid of the "probable" designation. I think AT is about as questionable to play as Tom Brady.

I think the whole Brady being injured thing is just a joke for the Pats. If i still bet, I would bet every single thing I owned that Brady will play. If theres one payer in the NFL that doesnt need to be at every practice its Brady. So I hope you are right.

Sources say #Vikings rookie center Pat Elflein is scheduled to have surgery next Monday to repair a fractured left ankle. To be performed by Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay, Wis. Have to wait for swelling to go down If all goes well the hope is Elflein is ready for spring drills

Haven't seen this mentioned anywhere but I guess we just about snuck it into the 2017 season : According to his agent, the Minnesota Vikings have signed offensive lineman Josh Andrews off the Philadelphia Eagles’ practice squad. Andrews signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Oregon State in 2014. He has not started an NFL game but appeared in 16 games between 2015 and 2016. - (per ESPN)

Quote:
G/C Josh Andrews who just finished his 4th season w/the Philadelphia Eagles will be signing with the Minnesota Vikings... Lots of interest elsewhere, but opportunity was too good to pass up and he'll be joining my other clients Mike Remmers & Rashod Hill on Minnesota's line.
quote from Brett Tessler (agent) on twitter

An interesting (presumably depth) piece that the new OC likes i'd imagine. Doubt anyone knows much about him but one to keep an eye out for in pre-season

Yeah definitely sounds like there would be some kind of connection there with DeFilippo (we gotta come up with a nickname for him. I hate typing his name out) :lol:

Flip seems to be used in media a lot... which makes a lot of people upset because to them there can only be one "Flip" (Saunders)
