Minnesota Vikings running back Jhurell Pressley catches a pass from Brad Sorensen and takes it to the house during week 4 of preseason vs the Rams.
Running back Jhurell Pressley is making a great case to stick around with the Minnesota Vikings following the last round of cuts to get to 53 players. He’s been a solid player through 3 preseason game, but now has something to add to his highlight reel.
During the second quarter of the week 4 preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams, Pressley caught a pass from quarterback Brad Sorensen and had room to run in front of him.
Check out the play from this tweet by the official NFL Twitter account:
Pressley made the most of that play, breaking some tackles and continuing to the end zone to give the Minnesota Vikings a lead going into the second half against Los Angeles. The light flashing following the score was odd, but perhaps it was just a fluke or something the team wanted to try out during a game.
Another thing to note was the play that set up the Vikings in Rams territory. First overall draft pick Jared Goff is having a rough day against the Minnesota Vikings, and it got even worse when he met up with Justin Trattou and Toby Johnson.
It’s awesome to see the big man lay out for the ball and make the big play. Meanwhile, Trattou has made a name for himself by batting passes or even intercepting them from the defensive end position.
Congratulations to Jhurell Pressley, Brad Sorensen, Toby Johnson, and Justin Trattou on some fabulous plays to help the Minnesota Vikings take the lead during the preseason contest. Hopefully some of those guys can stick with the team following final roster cuts.
