Injury Report: McKinnon Doubtful For The Vikings Against The Panthers

The Minnesota Vikings will not have starting running back Jerick McKinnon Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. He has been bothered by a lower back injury that needs a week off to heal. A committee of Matt Asiata (who missed last week’s game due to a concussion), Joe Banyard and Ben Tate will get the carries in McKinnon’s place. The Vikings have 11 players listed on their injury report and the Panthers have seven players listed on theirs.

Injury Report: Vikings Running Backs Are Getting Banged Up

The Minnesota Vikings are thin on healthy running backs with Matt Asiata out and Jerick McKinnon banged up. McKinnon is expected to play with a lower back issue, but the team claimed Ben Tate off waivers as insurance. Sharrif Floyd’s status is the biggest question mark of any injury on the team. He banged knees with a teammate and was held out of practice because of it. The Vikings list 13 players on their injury report and the Green Bay Packers list eight on theirs.

Zimmer Views Sunday’s Win As A Building Victory For The Vikings

New Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer wants to build a team with a tough mind set. He believes Sunday’s win is a step in building it. Last season, the Vikings allowed five game-winning or game-tying drives in the fourth quarter. In three of them, the offense had time to overcome the defensive collapses. However, they did not in all of them.
