The Minnesota Vikings are not planning on making changes just to make changes. The Vikings have begun to be hit with injuries. Unfortunately, they coming to one position group. The offensive line may be the Vikings biggest disappointment through three games this season. Minnesota is getting a boost with the return of Jerome Felton from his suspension. Zach Line has been placed on injured reserve.
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.
Preseason games might not provide much in terms of seeing the starters, but they’re a crucial audition for the guys trying to make a roster spot. Friday night, undrafted rookie fullback Zach Line made the most of his. He only touched the ball one time, but Line made it last as long as he could: 61 yards, all the way to the end zone. “[Wide receiver Stephen Burton] made a nice block for me, made it easy for me to get down the field. Seriously, he’s just a, like a chariot riding down the sidelines,” Line said.
