EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings practice squad quarterback Chandler Harnish has a foot injury that will keep him out for at least several weeks.
Coach Mike Zimmer said Harnish was inadvertently stepped on by a teammate in practice Wednesday. Harnish saw a foot specialist and was diagnosed with a Grade 1 Lisfranc sprain. The Vikings were planning to try out other quarterbacks for Harnish’s spot.READ MORE: Minneapolis Is #1 Pumpkin Spice City In U.S., Survey Finds
