Frazier says surgery is being discussed for Harrison Smith

Frazier AP

As the Vikings try to prop up a defense that currently resides near the bottom of the league in both yards allowed and points scored, they’ll be without safety Harrison Smith for at least one game.

Coach Leslie Frazier acknowledged to reporters on Thursday that Smith won’t play on Monday night against the Giants.

Amid conflicting reports on whether Smith will need toe surgery, Frazier acknowledged that it’s a possibility.

“We are discussing the possibility of surgery for Harrison Smith,” Frazier said.

Surgery or not, we’re hearing that Smith could be destined for injured reserve with the return designation, which would put Smith out of action for six weeks of practice and eight weeks of games.

    I’m sure he’ll be excited to come back to a 1-12 team.

    It’s a shame, Harrison Smith is the only veteran DB on the roster I like. He plays hard and makes plays. Take the surgery, don’t chance further injury or delay too long to take it. The season is a lost cause, no sense in worsening injuries to our better players.

    If the Giants don’t win this game they will go 1-15, and have to sweat out THAT win.

    The Vikings secondary is toast Monday night.

    Too bad, he is their best defensive player but that’s like saying Ol Sadie over there is the most virtuous employee at the Mustang Ranch.

    A distinction with almost no difference.

    I’m surprised that so many lavender Larry toads have tossed Frazier under the bus. He wanting Smith to hold off surgery is a dead give away he still thinks the queens can make a run at the playoffs proving he’s just as desperately delusional as the rubes are. I thought birds of a feather……………….

    I also remember the Vikings getting locked out of the playoffs by their decisions on draft day. If someone forgets, it happens just about every year at the same time.

    Nice to see somebody else who enjoys Carl’s “gentle” humor. He can grate on some, but for one enjoy his acerbic (even though he has no idea what that means) wit!

    How Green Bay fans refer to ANYONE as rubes is beyond me.

    Apparently you have no idea what the meaning of “acerbic is either. A person with an “acerbic wit” would express themselves with a caustic or harsh tone. Hardly “gentle” as you described Carl.

    I’ll refrain from being overly “acerbic” in my criticism of fraudulently showcasing yourself as being literate. Next time you hear an appealing poly-syllabic word you think will benefit you in your falsehood to portray yourself as being smart, you might first Google the meaning to keep from being caught in your lie. But then, you are a lavender Larry toad and living a lie is SOP.
