Vikings’ Jerome Felton suspended three games

Jerome Felton AP

Jerome Felton, the Vikings’ starting fullback, will miss the first three games of the regular season.

The NFL has announced that Felton is suspended three games for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.

Felton, who was arrested for drunk driving last year, is Adrian Peterson’s lead blocker when the Vikings line up in the I formation. He played in all 16 games for the Vikings last season, starting seven.

Although Felton will be eligible to play in Thursday’s preseason finale, he must leave the team by Saturday and will not be permitted back at practice until Monday, September 23, following Minnesota’s Week 3 game against the Browns.

Felton was a Pro Bowler last year and signed a three-year, $7.5 million contract with the Vikings this year.

    Looks like Zach Line can keep that spot he’s been earning for at least three games…

  2. filthymcnasty1 says: Aug 26, 2013 3:44 PM

    He never took anything directly, but accidentally touched Adrian Peterson’s thigh once.

  3. tokyosandblaster says: Aug 26, 2013 3:44 PM

    Hooligans.

    Well, there is nothing to do in Minnesota but fish and drink.

    Hell, they don’t even have a professional football team.

    No wonder these kids drink and drive.

  4. furnhole says: Aug 26, 2013 3:44 PM

    Smoke it up or juice it up, all the same. Just one more idiot.

  5. tjacks7 says: Aug 26, 2013 3:45 PM

    Bad news, but at least it looks like Brad Line will be sticking around for at least a little while. All he does it catch touchdowns!!

  6. Rick Spielman is a Magician says: Aug 26, 2013 3:46 PM

    That’s annoying, but it isn’t like Adrian has never run without a fullback before.

  7. longcutskolvikes says: Aug 26, 2013 3:48 PM

    If there’s nothing for Minnesotans to do but drink and fish, what does that say for Sconies? Anyhow, this is not good news. I hope Jerome Felton can sort out his problems. If not ,Rhett Ellison will be playing fullback this year.

  8. ilovemyringlessfranchise says: Aug 26, 2013 3:48 PM

    This totally sucks. Felton was a huge part of AD’s success last year. Between this and Ponder’s performance so far in preseason, I’m feeling kind of sick to my stomach.

  9. ajalpha1s says: Aug 26, 2013 3:49 PM

    i hope christian ponder would be suspended for the whole season smh

  10. Land of Sky Blue Water says: Aug 26, 2013 3:49 PM

    Was he hanging with Tomy Kramer?

  12. fwippel says: Aug 26, 2013 3:49 PM

    I think Zac Line just earned himself a roster spot…for at least three games.

    Not a good omen for the Vikings, especially with two road division games to kick off the season.

  13. 52lightsxout52 says: Aug 26, 2013 3:49 PM

    Oh-oh… ;-O

  14. nflpoker says: Aug 26, 2013 3:49 PM

    This just may help Zach Line, another fullback, make the team. What a way to make the team if it is because of this suspension.

  15. onlythebest36 says: Aug 26, 2013 3:50 PM

    No big holes for AP now. You will have to rely more and more on that thing called Ponder who has the arm strength of a six year old. Good luck with that one.

  16. Carl Gerbschmidt says: Aug 26, 2013 3:50 PM

    Get him the lawyer for the Williams guys and a couple of hometown judge/fans and he’ll be able to stretch this out for three years minimum, no problem.

    I’m not a Vikings fan but I still feel the need to say that we shouldn’t accuse every great player of being dirty. AP seems more genuine and honest than Ryan Braun or lance Armstrong ever did. It would be a sad day to find out he’s juicing

    That’s Zach, not Brad. BTW, maybe someone should spike Ponder’s Gatorade, so he gets suspended. Sarcasm. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Cassel may be the better of the two. Impressive, huh? Not really. Neither are all-pro material.

    Both of your fanbases are equally guilty in trolling articles about each others’ teams. That you would complain about that is just hypocritical.

  28. vincelombardisghost says: Aug 26, 2013 4:01 PM

    Between the suspensions for violating league rules and the multitude of season ending injuries suffered by many teams this year, they have the potential to change team fortunes, which is unfortunate.

  29. davikes says: Aug 26, 2013 4:02 PM

    “i hope christian ponder would be suspended for the whole season smh”

    Did you see Cassel play last night? I was hoping he would provide some competition, and maybe even beat out Ponder. Or at least be a quality backup. But he looks worse than Ponder. Hope MBT can do something, but I’m not optimistic.

    For someone else, it’s ZACH Line. Not Brad.

    Agreed that both fan bases are guilty of trolling. But I think the word you were looking for was “ironic” not hypocritical. For it to be hypocritical of me, I would have to troll Packer articles, then complain about trolls. Now the word irony means… nevermind.

    Yeah, this would have been the feel good story of the year for Viking fans if we hadn’t ruined everything.

    Sacrilege.

  32. allidoiswin55 says: Aug 26, 2013 4:05 PM

    Mike Robinson of the seahawks is a better player than him and as much as Seattle fans love him, paying over a million and a half a year is ludicrous. Seahawks run the ball the most in the nfl and we’re top 5, they don’t even regard fullbacks at that rate.

    It’s a dying position that many hybrid TE a can play. Paying him that much is idiotic. Adrian Peterson does most of his work without him. AD is a monster, one of few players who I am certain with a minor downgrade at FB won’t affect his production much.

  33. gbmickey says: Aug 26, 2013 4:07 PM

    How deserving for the few viking trolls. With all the insinuations we hear of Matthews from you now you have your second player this offseason, on top of the Williams boys before, not to mention the high probability that Peterson had used to get back on the field. Dare I say karma. Looking like it is a pretty dirty program over there trying to keep up with big brother accross the river. Try and cheat to keep up.

  34. billyisradical says: Aug 26, 2013 4:07 PM

  37. coachkilla6 says: Aug 26, 2013 4:13 PM

    Looks like last year’s overachieving Viking team is destined to revert back to the 3-13 team they really are. No QB, and a one dimensional offense just got worse.

    Rhett Ellison should benifit the most from this as should Chase Ford or Colin Anderson who can step in as the third TE while Ellison plays FB with Felton out. Both guys have looked good enough so far

    @flashpatterson,

    As long your quarterback is named Ponder, we’ll always have something to talk about with your team.

    On another note, Viking fans need to stop with the”why does every packer fan post immediately on Viking stories?” Go on every packer story and I guarantee you there are at least five Viking trolls in the first ten posts. So enough with the crying. You don’t like us and we sure as hell don’t like you. That will never change. If you don’t like it, go complain to your mother.

  51. smartestpackerfan says: Aug 26, 2013 4:45 PM

    anyone saying that Cassel is better than Ponder needs their head examined. Ponder is not playing with #28 behind him. Wait and see what he does with #28 behind him. If he falters, then you can blame him. You can’t blame Ponder for preseason. It’s preseason folks.
    AND FOR ANYONE who doesn’t think he has arm strength……did you see the 1st play of the 49ers preseason game?
    If you did, then you will not say he has no arm strength. IDIOTS!!

    And then just to drive the point home we got to watch Kaep, a guy taken in the same draft, deliver passes on a wire all night. It was a perfect study in contrasts. I am still holding out hope for ponder (because I don’t have a choice), but any optimism regarding his ability to ever pass for more than 150 yds in a game is very guarded. Arm strength is still a huge concern, as is his accuracy. Last night only provided evidence for that concern.

    I’m pretty sure the Packers have more than the two fans I called out in my earlier post. Nobody said “every” Packer fan. I named two names and pointed out their hypocrisy. (Almost) Everyone can agree that these trolls are annoying, but it’s the hypocrisy that bothered me most. But I guess I’ll just go complain about it to my mother.

    I remember hearing Forbes magazine listed Felton as the #1 most overpaid player in the NFL (I believe Jared Allen was #2). Given that he just inked a 3-year, $7.5 million contract, I see the Vikes using this as an opportunity to see if Ellison or even Line can produce comparably in real game action. If so, cut that clown.

  71. whatjusthapped says: Aug 26, 2013 5:24 PM

    I figured a Viking RB would be busted for substance abuse, I just had the wrong one in my mind.

    What is it with the Vikings and following the law? Ok, here is a quick quiz;

    1. Who is the only team to have their head coach busted for scalping Superbowl tickets?
    2. Which team was solely responsible for changes in the sample collection process because of the whizanator?
    3. NFL players hiring hookers is hardly news but what team should have been busted for flying them over state lines so Bryant McKinnie, among others, could have a little late night snack?
    4 Which team had their head coach busted for groping the administrative assistants?

    You can’t make this stuff up but all 4 are the same sleazeball team lead by their sleazeball owner who just lost a fraud case of his own.

    he was throwing into the wind in case u were not notified, that being said Ponder makes an above average o-line having a bad game look terrible. he has no pocket presence, stared down receivers, and double clutched waaaaay to much, even against 2nd string defense. Ponder makes the o-line look terrible and AP makes em look like all pros. Hope its a make or break year for Musgrave, play action without even proving a running game first, purely pathetic even for pre season.

    Contra, Rick, PVYharvin, barroomzero, & GenExJay

    Yes we have had more than our fair share of scandals over the years but Mark Chmura beats all of those combined, sorry.

    And didn’t the golden boy Paul Hornung get caught betting on games?

    I think you could pick just about any NFL team and point out the ridiculous scandals they have been through.

    So you are saying because those guys do it, it’s okay for you to do as well? That makes sense…

    There goes that 2500 yards prediction by AP down the crapper. He needs his FB. Plus Ponder will be even worse without Felton is pass protection.

  82. wdnemesis says: Aug 26, 2013 6:06 PM

    It don’t matter as long as AD can carry us. And it course Ponder has to make his passes in the game as well. Zach Line has a good chance he could make the team now.

  83. mackstrong2013 says: Aug 26, 2013 6:08 PM

    Weird, must have touched Matthews hair a little too long or something. Anyways, this is slightly more troubling than if the Rolling Stones lost their Tambourine player, anyone who is actually worried needs to calm down, we could field no FB and four lineman and still have the best running game in the division.

    I see eloquense comes to mind when you read my posts fake fi1thy. Too bad i cant say the same with your incoherent gibberish.

    Whats with the originality of the savvy viking posters using the same handles as the packer posters? I guess when you lack creativity and are inept at the verbal sparring thats what your left with, bravo! Its as weak as your team is on the field. See how its done?
    ——————————–

    Nice. I like the angle, but the spelling and grammar mistakes detract from the overall message. I will agree about the posters you speak of, but what they do is no worse than regurgitating the same tired, worn out phrases on every thread. Of course, the king was that guy (mounteddonkey or something like that….) that would copy and paste the same big long tribute to his idiocy on a regular basis.

    Then again, we have all come to expect hypocrisy from the GB faithful. After all, this is the fanbase that screams to the heavens that signing FAs is bad team building (Reggie White, Charles Woodson, Al Harris, Santana Dotson, Ryan Pickett….), how a 1st and two 3rds was a ridiculous price to pay for Allen (a 2nd and two 3rds for Matthews), and my personal favorite…. A pass-first team (referring to the Vikings of 1998-2004) would never be able to win without a running game to balance the offense.

    But wait…. I have to say something inflammatory now. See, I haven’t changed my handle since I first started posting on this site, and apparently I am on some kind of watch list, since 90% of what I post is removed and only the most childish stuff makes it through, so I guess I have to say something like…..

    This all stems from getting busted for going through the McDonald’s drive through last summer. This wouldn’t have been a problem if McD’s wouldn’t have started keeping its stores open all night to cater to McCarthy’s hourly snack runs.

  87. davikes says: Aug 26, 2013 6:51 PM

    Don’t worry about Felton being out, AD will just block for himself. And still gain twice as many yards as both Packers backs combined.

    I figured a Viking RB would be busted for substance abuse, I just had the wrong one in my mind.

    What is it with the Vikings and following the law? Ok, here is a quick quiz;

    1. Who is the only team to have their head coach busted for scalping Superbowl tickets?
    2. Which team was solely responsible for changes in the sample collection process because of the whizanator?
    3. NFL players hiring hookers is hardly news but what team should have been busted for flying them over state lines so Bryant McKinnie, among others, could have a little late night snack?
    4 Which team had their head coach busted for groping the administrative assistants?

    You can’t make this stuff up but all 4 are the same sleazeball team lead by their sleazeball owner who just lost a fraud case of his own.

    2. Chmura’s babysitter

    Oh, and BTW… At least when the Vikings hire hookers, they aren’t so upset at the end of the party that they call the police and file charges. Wasn’t Clayroid at that party? And Sitton and Flynn and Brad Jones, too, right?

  89. tokyosandblaster says: Aug 26, 2013 7:05 PM

    224 of Peterson’s 348 carries last season came in a two-back set. He averaged a whopping 7.25 yards per carry in those situations, scoring eight of his 12 touchdowns. When he wasn’t in a two-back set? Peterson averaged 3.8 yards on his other 124 carries, for a total of 471 yards.

    Let that sink in.

    First three games, zero wins.

    I remember hearing Forbes magazine listed Felton as the #1 most overpaid player in the NFL (I believe Jared Allen was #2). Given that he just inked a 3-year, $7.5 million contract, I see the Vikes using this as an opportunity to see if Ellison or even Line can produce comparably in real game action. If so, cut that clown.

    _________

    Sadly Allen was not on this list considering he is better than any passer rusher we have combined. Eddie Lacy and Jonathan Franklin were 2 and 3. :(

    And yet another chapter to the ineptness of the Vikings. No team in the history of professional sports in the USA has compiled a list of complete ineptness both on and off the field.

With all the insinuations we hear of Matthews from you now you have your second player this offseason, on top of the Williams boys before, not to mention the high probability that Peterson had used to get back on the field. Dare I say karma. Looking like it is a pretty dirty program over there trying to keep up with big brother accross the river. Try and cheat to keep up.

    The vikings have players busted all the time.

    They are constantly finding new ways to embarrass the state of Minnesota and the NFL.

    They did not kill any of their players in training camp this year, didn’t have a criminal cruise so far this season, and so far no child abuse incidents or attempted murder of a girlfriend, this season they haven’t had a player threaten a neighbor with a firearm, plus it is too early for two of them to go over a 100 mph on icy roads.

    So far their stadium hasn’t collapsed, no one was raped at a snowmobile event, and so far no one was stopped at the airport with a Whizzinator, nor has any of the coaching staff violated their pledge not to scalp tickets to other teams games. As far as we know the coach has not painted his house green and gold and no player has been arrested while attempting to evade police.

    Just because all of these things have happened in the past, doesn’t mean the vikings won’t find a new way to humiliate anyone who still might support them.

    The vikings have absolutely no sense of shame.
