Vikings left tackle Christian Darrisaw was questionable for Thursday night’s game against the Eagles due to an ankle injury. In spite of getting active for the game, he did not play at all. Coach Kevin O’Connell later explained that Darrisaw had aggravated the injury through pregame warmups, which occurred immediately after the deadline for producing players inactive. This absence forced Oli Udoh to take more than as the left tackle. Sadly, Udoh suffered a knee injury through the fourth quarter, with O’Connell expressing concern that it didn’t appear great.
Luckily, Darrisaw now has a ten-day recovery period ahead of the Vikings’ subsequent game against the Chargers at dwelling. The challenge with brief-week football is that players who sustain injuries on a Sunday could have been in a position to play if offered a complete week in between games. With a couple of additional days of rest, Darrisaw could have had a far better possibility of healing devoid of aggravation. In the occasion that Darrisaw is unable to play, David Quessenberry will probably step in as the left tackle for Week three against the Chargers.
