The Minnesota Vikings are missing a couple of key backups to injuries.
The Minnesota Vikings have seen their fair shares of injuries this season with four starters already on injured reserve. This week they will travel to Ford Field to take on the Detroit Lions without four more starters. Anthony Barr, Sharrif Floyd, Robert Blanton and Charlie Johnson all were declared out for the game. In total, the Vikings have nine players listed on the injury report. The Lions have nine players on their respective list as well.
The Minnesota Vikings announced Tuesday they’ve signed three of their picks from the NFL Draft earlier this month. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, defensive tackle Shamar Stephen and linebacker Brandon Watts agreed to rookie contracts.
