With the confirmation PhilLoadholt tore his Achilles tendon during Saturday’s preseason game, the Minnesota Vikings have placed the big right tackle on injured reserve, ending his season.
Minnesota signed free agent tackle Stephen Goodin to the 90-man roster, adding competition to a right tackle position that is currently led by rookie fourth-round draft pick T.J. Clemmings.
Goodin, 26, has played in one NFL game in three seasons after being undrafted out of Division II Nebraska-Kearney. Goodin was a three-year starter in college. He saw action in one game for the New York Giants in 2013 and was with the Dallas Cowboys in the preseason last year.
