Like the severe weather currently affecting Minnesota and TCF Bank Stadium, injuries have finally struck the Vikings. Last week’s preseason game marked the beginning of a string of injuries for the team, with none more devastating than Phil Loadholt’s torn achilles tendon.
Although certain players like Anthony Barr returned to practice and will make their preseason debut tonight, others weren’t so lucky, and will not take the field against the Oakland Raiders at 7 pm:
Officially out tonight for the #Vikings: S Antone Exum, OT Carter Bykowski, C John Sullivan, TE MyCole Pruitt and NT Shamar Stephen.
