Vikings have long list of injuries, including losing Cedrick Lang for the season

Does anyone know if any of these guys were going to be anything more than the 52nd or 53rd roster spot at best?

It really sucks to lose people, but I'm still holding my breath that nothing happens to those we do not want this happening to.

That is a good point. The list might be long, but how many were likely to crack the 52. If the answer is close to zero, then this is kind of a red herring.

I think we got lucky in that regard. Some of the guys who got injured basically got a medical redshirt and get to be stashed for another year. Of course, having your knee torn up is no joke and I feel terrible for the players, but from a strategic point of view, the Vikings got lucky in terms of WHO got injured.
