Source: Vikings G Herrera likely out two weeks with torn PCL

Vikings starting right guard Anthony Herrera could miss two weeks with a torn posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, according to Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press citing a person with knowledge of the situation.

Herrera suffered the injury with 3:29 left in the second quarter of Sunday’s 33-27 loss to the Packers. He returned to the game before limping off the field late in the fourth quarter.

Herrera suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the same knee in November but rehabbed in the offseason and returned to full action by the Sept. 11 season opener. He has started all seven games this season.

Coach Leslie Frazier said today that Herrera is seeking a second opinion on an injury that could be related to the torn ACL. But the preliminary prognisis is a torn PCL, according to the person with knowledge of the injury.

    Ouch. We are hurting on the O-line, Defensive backs, and we need another Wr also. Important week for the Vikings, hopefully our practice squad has some depth to fill in these positions.

    This is a bummer, but personally I don’t think Herrera should have ever been starting in this league to begin with. The guy is/was scrappy, but when he’s gimping around on a reconstructed leg that mean streak is pretty useless.
