Brinkley Could Miss Season

MLB Jasper Brinkley could be out for the season with a hip injury. Tom Pelissero states Brinkley might choose surgery that would force him to miss a substantial amount of time. Vikings will have to decide to put him on IR for the season or wait for him to return. Would likely miss at least 2 months.

Vikings could be heading to the free agent line for a back up middle linebacker or go with recently signed David Herron.

    With everything happening at Will LBer this has to be great news for the team ~

    I dont have much confidence in Herron so time to go with plan B. Should be good news for Farwells job security.

    Jasper Brinkley underwent hip surgery Tuesday and is a candidate for Injured Reserve, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

      Brinkley going to I.R. and Henderson in the final year of his contract, MLB could be a real issue next offseason.

        I hate to say it, but what wont be an issue next offseason? We have Ponder, but QB still will be unless we see him late in the season and he looks good. OL will be, WR likely will be(unless jenkens turns into a beast), TE will be depending on Shanks contract. On Def, DL looks solid but LB will be, safety will be, and CB will be with annie gettin older.

        We have some rough waters ahead, we’ll see if Leslie can keep these longboats afloat.
