Tarvaris Jackson Placed on IR

Monday was the night Brett Favre‘s consecutive games streak officially reached its point of termination.  It was also likely the night Tarvaris Jackson‘s Minnesota Vikings career came to an end.

Nothing is official yet, but it certainly looks for all the world like T-Jack has played his last down for the Vikings.  Today the team is expected to put him on IR with turf toe, ending his 2010 season.  After the year he will become a free agent, and it is unlikely that the Vikings will bid to once again procure his services.

Jackson was abysmal in his apparent final appearance with the Vikings, going 15-of-30 for 118 yards, no touchdowns and a pick.  The week before against the Bills he was occasionally brilliant, but sullied his own performance with a couple of bad interceptions.

By placing Jackson on IR, the Vikings reduce their quarterback options for Monday night to a blue-handed Brett Favre, a green-around-the-gills Joe Webb and a cold-off-the-street Patrick Ramsey.  Whoever plays will have the pleasure of facing Julius Peppers and the Chicago Bears on a rock-hard frozen surface in temperatures below 20 degrees at TCF Bank Stadium.
