E.J. Henderson Missed 2nd Straight Practice

E.J. Henderson sat out practice Thursday and Friday, and now his status for Sundays game is in doubt. Frazier stated that Henderson woke up with swelling in his knee on Thursday and ended up having an x-ray done but it came back negative, showing no structural damage according to Tom Pelissero of

Not a good sign that Henderson sat out practice for a 2nd day straight when back-up MLB Jasper Brinkley is on IR for the season. If Henderson can’t go on Sunday, than the Vikings will either start Xavier Adibi at MLB or shift over Erin Henderson and start Kenny Onatolu at WLB.

UPDATE: Frazier stated after practice today that E.J. will be a game time decision but is hopeful he will play. E.J. believes he will play and told Frazier that he will. Keep an eye on the injury report come game time on Sunday.

    EJ will play. A little swelling in the knee? My knee is swollen all the time, I still play.

    You guys ever heard about this?

      “It is even rumored that field goal kicker Gary Anderson, who missed a critical three point try in the 1998 Superbowl game, after a flawless season, caught a whiff of the dreaded fish just before making his field goal attempt that surely would have secured a win for the team if he had made it.”

      Weird, and all this time I thought we were playing in the NFCCG, not the Super Bowl.

      Imagine my embarrassment.

      That story is bull, cart. I hate it when people get stories wrong. Sven and I were roomates in college – some people said that except for the facial hair we looked like brothers – so I should know. Anyway, what really happened is that Sven took his fish out to the parking lot and tailgated with it. He yelled out, “If you want some fish, get your purses out, (He was always out to make a buck.) and if you want a second bowl, go to the end of the line.”

      Know you all know the truth.
