Bernard Berrian was supposed to start for the Vikings Sunday against Green Bay.
Coming off his five-catch effort last week, Berrian was initially listed on Minnesota’s sheet for starting lineups. Tom Pelissero of espn1500.com notes that Berrian’s name was crossed out in ink, and replaced by Michael Jenkins.
It appears that Berrian was deactivated at the last minute for some reason. And now it appears that Berrian’s time in Minnesota could be over. Vikings coach Leslie Frazier was asked if Berrian had a future with the team after the game.
“It’s something that we’ll talk about this week and we’ll talk about it more this week,” Frazier said.
Translation: So long, Bernard. Your ninth life is up.
Berrian has only five catches on the season, but we suspect he’ll be able to find a job if the Vikings cut him.
