The Vikings injury report going into the weekend looks like this:
Asher Allen – questionable (toe)
Donovan McNabb – probable (wrist)
Visanthe Shiancoe – probable (hammy)
Chris Cook – probable (hammy)
Guessing the Allen injury will result in him being down for the Chargers game and Brandon Burton being up. No one seems very concerned about the McNabb or Shiancoe issues, but you have to be at least a teensy bit anxious about Shank because it’s a hammy and that could tighten up at any time. Let’s hope Cook’s hammy problem doesn’t hamper him too much in his quest to become the greatest nickelback in NFL history.
Let’s rock our way into the weekend with a little Friday injury report music courtesy of The Pretenders. Don’t read anything into that whole Pretenders thing. I’m not calling the Vikings pretenders. Not consciously anyway.
