Are the Vikings more worried about Tarvaris Jackson‘s MCL sprain than they’re letting on? Kevin Seifert thinks there’s something at least a little fishy, as he expressed in this tweet:
Suspicious amount of secrecy for what is a supposed to be a mild injury, but no evidence T-Jack is hurt worse than original report.
The injury is said to be a grade 1 sprain, which is the least serious.
According to Access Vikings, Tarvaris spent Monday working on a stationary bike and doing some running, then stood around watching practice. With a brace on. And no word yet from the Vikes on when he will return.
You know what I think? Less work for Tarvaris means more for Sage Rosenfels, who was always going to win the starting job anyway. And it means more reps for John David Booty who might wind up being the back-up quarterback before all is said and done.
If Tarvaris stays on the shelf long enough, even Percy Harvin, who got snaps as a Wildcat QB during OTAs, might pass him on the depth chart. And that would be just fine with me. I’ve seen all of T-Jack I ever need to see. No, I’m not happy that he’s hurt – I just don’t care if he ever plays again.
