Crichton Latest to be Placed on Vikings IR

The Vikings added their eighth player of 2015 to Injured Reserve on Saturday. The latest being second year defensive end Scott Crichton.

Crichton suffered a concussion and an injury to his neck during Minnesota’s 23-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals last Thursday. With only seven total tackles and zero sacks in his career so far, he has yet to make the impact the Vikings were hoping for when they drafted him in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

He had already been ruled out for Minnesota’s game against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, but apparently the team did not feel his recovery time was short enough to keep a spot for him on the active roster. In his place the Vikings signed former Concordia University-St. Paul defensive end  Zach Moore who spent some time in 2014 with the New England Patriots.

Adam has been rooting for the Vikings ever since he saw Randall Cunningham win NFC Special Teams Player of the week in 1997. Since his career sports highlights include 3rd place at 5th Grade Golf Camp and catching a ball during a soccer game (he was not playing goalie), Adam turned to writing. He considers himself a 'Vikings Realist' as he does not shy away from criticizing the purple and gold if necessary.
