Vikings short on defensive ends heading into

Philadelphia Going into their game in Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon Womens Customized Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , the Minnesota Vikings are dealing with a couple of injury issues. Some of those issues have left them short at a pretty important position, and it will be interesting to see how they handle it.Tashawn Bower (ankle) and Everson Griffen (personal issues) are both going to miss Sunday’s game for the Vikings, which means that they only have two defensive ends on the roster healthy enough to play on Sunday: Danielle Hunter and Stephen Weatherly. Weatherly has started the past two games in Griffen’s absence, and Hunter has had a strong start to the season. The rest of the defensive end depth chart, however, is on the shelf in some way. The Vikings had signed Jonathan Wynn to the practice squad earlier this week, but as of Saturday night had not made a move to place him on the main roster.It will be interesting to see how the Vikings handle this, and there are a couple of different potential solutions. First, the Vikings have rookie Jalyn Holmes available and could potentially use him as a defensive end. Holmes has not been active for a game yet this year, and primarily worked on the inside in camp as a three-technique tackle. However, he played a lot of defensive end in college and could fill that spot in a pinch.The other solution. . .and one that I’d, frankly, like to see. . .involved linebacker Anthony Barr. During the offseason , the Vikings had said that they were going to attempt to use Barr more as a hand-in-the-dirt defensive end, particularly in pass-rushing situations. However, we haven’t really seen much of that during this early portion of the regular season. With the situation the Vikings are currently looking at, however, they might not have much of a choice. The upside of that is that it would give Barr the opportunity to get after the opposing quarterback, and it would keep him far away from opposing wide receivers. This can only be considered a good thing.Like I said, I’m not sure exactly what the Vikings are going to do as far as their defensive end situation on Sunday, but they don’t have a whole lot of readily-available solutions at this point, either.Monday Open Thread: September 17, 2018 Merry Monday, everyone!Well, that was great, and it sucked Minnesota Vikings Womens T-Shirt , and everything in between. For how the game went and ended, I really don’t know where I am on the happiness scale. If you’re feeling the same as I am, you’re probably feeling a lot like this guy today:your mood after your team’s game winds up in a tieI’m also hungry for Thai food, and I had the urge to wear a suit and tie this morning. I’m not sure why..........I’m happy that the Vikings came back after being down by quite a bit late in the game. I’m happy that Kirk Cousins looks to be the real deal, and besides an interception that WAS NOT his fault (glares at Treadwell), had very few mistakes, and also played a very good game. The team didn’t give up, and they were playing in a place where it’s not easy to win........or tie. I’m also happy that I have a mute button on my TV, I used it before the game started, and I kept it on mute for the entire game, and it was wonderful. I find myself doing this more often than not anymore.I’m not happy that the officiating. I’ve never been a fan of Corrente, and my opinion of his officiating worsened yesterday. I’m not happy that the team was down late and that we were so close to getting beat by a lesser team. I’m not happy with the drops, and the Asiata-like bump-set interception that nearly sealed the win......for the wrong team. I’m not happy with our kicker. I’m not going to berate the guy for missing field goals Minnesota Vikings Hats , but those were two field goals that missed badly, and the other was a relatively easy and short kick that should have won the game on the road against our chief division rival, but didn’t. They all three missed to the right, so at least he’s consistent.Around the DN since our last open thread:Dan Persons has your post-game wrap-up.Jonah Dylan wants to talk about Daniel Carlson, as I’m sure many others do. I’ll bring the popcorn.From Ted, there’s a new host on Good Morning Gjallarhorn.Vikings news from other sources and news from around the rest of the NFL:From, catch Coach Zimmer’s post-game press conference, Kirk Cousins addressed the media as well, see all the game highlights, and there’s lots more to sift through in the media vault.At, get all the scores and game highlights from week 2.We come to today’s media selection:Let’s let the great Bob Marley tell us how to feel.Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:No discussion of politics or religionNo feeding of the trollsThis isn’t a male version of The View Minnesota Vikings Womens Hoodie , so leave the gender hatred at the doorKeep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tagsNo pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employerIf you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go awayWhile navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasmWith that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, and try the head cheese.
