Former Minnesota Vikings linebacker Erin Henderson pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DWI charge earlier this week and was sentenced to two years of probation.
Former Minnesota Viking Erin Henderson is accused of driving drunk and possessing at least 10 grams of marijuana in an arrest last November, according to charges filed last week in Hennepin County Court.
The Minnesota Vikings have released linebacker Erin Henderson, who was recently arrested twice on suspicion of drunken driving. The Vikings announced Henderson’s release Friday. Henderson had one season left on his contract with a $1.95 million salary. Henderson’s latest arrest was Jan. 1 after he crashed his sport utility vehicle in Chanhassen.
For at least the second time since November, Henderson was arrested Wednesday in Chanhassen on suspicion of DWI. According to jail records, Henderson was booked into the Carver County Jail at 3:03 p.m. Wednesday for fourth-degree DWI, third-degree DWI, second-degree DWI test refusal and violating the conditions of a limited driver’s license.
The Minnesota Vikings closed the history of Mall of America Field with a victory Sunday by beating the Detroit Lions 14-13. Cordarrelle Patterson scored two touchdowns, one rushing and the other receiving for the only two Vikings scores. The Lions scored 13 straight points in the second half to take a lead, but could not keep the Vikings from scoring the winning touchdown.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson surpassed the 10,000 yard rushing plateau. He is the 28th player in league history and third quickest to do so. He is grateful for his God-given talent and blessed to have had the players around him to make it happen. Erin Henderson returned last week after missing the previous week with personal reasons, but did not play Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Cordarrelle Patterson’s role in the Vikings offense continues to expand.
Minnesota Vikings linebacker Erin Henderson is suing the state after a Nov. 19 DWI arrest, saying police didn’t have probable cause to stop him.
The Minnesota Vikings released A.J. Jefferson hours after he was arrested for a domestic assault claim. The Vikings are now down three healthy cornerbacks on their roster with one on their practice squad. Audie Cole made his start on Sunday and was impressive. He is likely to remain in the starting lineup. The Vikings filled their open roster spot by claiming offensive tackle Mike Remmers off waivers from the San Diego Chargers.
The Minnesota Vikings will play without starting middle linebacker Erin Henderson at Green Bay. Henderson has missed practice all week due to an unspecified personal matter. On Friday, coach Leslie Frazier ruled the team’s leading tackler out of the game against the Packers. Audie Cole will start in Henderson’s place. Another starter, defensive end Brian Robison, was listed as questionable for Sunday because of a muscle spasm in his neck.
Christian Ponder says he can play, but Leslie Frazier hasn’t committed to starting the third-year quarterback on Sunday. The former first round draft pick will wear a harness, if he plays. The team listed two players as non-participants, seven players as limited participants and six players as full participants in Thursday’s practice.
The Minnesota Vikings have a very good defense on paper. However, on the field it has been a different story. The Vikings rank near the bottom in the league in most statistical defensive categories. The Vikings lost linebacker Desmond Bishop to a torn ACL during the Week 5 loss to the Carolina Panthers. Head coach Leslie Frazier would like to name his starting quarterback for Monday’s showdown with the winless New York Giants on Wednesday.
The Minnesota Vikings showed very little effort in a blow out loss to the Carolina Panthers. The offense failed to move the ball as efficiently as it did in its previous game. Matt Cassel was unable to maintain the spark he had in London. The defense was shredded from beginning to end. The special teams units barely got a chance to show anything.
The Minnesota Vikings have only one win through the first quarter of the season, but Cordarrelle Patterson, Xavier Rhodes and Marcus Sherels have played well. The Vikings need Chad Greenway, Erin Henderson, the offensive line and Christian Ponder to step up to get the team back on the right track.
Christian Ponder injured his ribs in last week’s loss to the Cleveland Browns, which leaves his status for the Minnesota Vikings’ Week 4 contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers in doubt. Leslie Frazier would like to name his starting quarterback Friday. The Vikings had two non-participants, five limited participants and three full participants at Thursday’s practice.
The Minnesota Vikings are preparing to be without tight end Rhett Ellison for Sunday’s home opener against the Cleveland Browns. Undrafted rookie Zach Line is next in line to fill-in for suspended fullback Jerome Felton as Adrian Peterson’s lead blocker. The Vikings had five players listed as limited participants in practice and three players as full participants.
The Minnesota Vikings are expecting to get a big boost from the return of defensive tackle Kevin Williams from injury. The 11-year NFL veteran missed just the third game of his career due to injury. The Vikings have eight players on their injury report, including four full participants and four limited participants.
Defensive tackle Kevin Williams was the only Minnesota Vikings to miss practice Thursday. Safety Harrison Smith and McLeod Bethel-Thompson were the only players to have their practice status change from Wednesday to Thursday. Three players were full participants both days despite injuries and five were limited both days.
The first week of training camp is an adjustment for everybody, leaving that offseason mindset behind and focusing entirely on football. For the new guys on the team, that adjustment is even bigger. But two days in to training camp, Packer linebacker Desmond Bishop feels like he’s off to a good start. “It feels good. I never thought I’d look so good in purple,” Bishop said. “I think I look pretty handsome.”
The Minnesota Vikings stocked up on defense during the draft. They still have two major unanswered questions, however.
The Minnesota Vikings have finalized new contracts with linebacker Erin Henderson and wide receiver Jerome Simpson. The team announced the deals Wednesday, the day after NFL free agency began.
The Minnesota Vikings had a disappointing finish to an encouraging season. Jared Allen will undergo surgery on his shoulder after the Pro Bowl later this month. The Vikings now begin preparation for the draft in April and evaluating its 14 free agents.
The Minnesota Vikings defeated the St. Louis Rams Sunday and got a little help to move into the sixth and final spot in the playoffs. It still has two games remaining to reach the postseason, but at least now it controls its own destiny. Adrian Peterson ran for 212 yards and a touchdown to solidify his case for the league’s MVP award.
The Minnesota Vikings played three games in November and lost two of them. The Vikings were led by Adrian Peterson on offense, Antoine Winfield on defense and Kevin Williams on special teams in November.
The Minnesota Vikings had several players miss practices this week, but the most notable omission was running back Adrian Peterson. Friday is a significant practice to miss, but head coach Leslie Frazier said he is not worried about his availability for Sunday’s game.
Tennessee Titans receiver Kenny Britt has been activated for the game against Minnesota after being listed as probable with a sprained left ankle.
