Vikings lose tight end Rhett Ellison to torn patellar tendon

As the Vikings prepare to host the Seahawks in the wild card round Sunday, they’re going to be without one of the key blockers for the run game they’re going to need.

According to Jason Gonzalez of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, tight end Rhett Ellison suffered a torn patellar tendon in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s win over the Packers, and will be out for the remainder of the season.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Ellison will undergo surgery and need six months to get back on the field.

Ellison has shown value as a blocker and a fullback, helping the Vikings to the league’s fourth-ranked rushing game.

“Rhett is really a guy that does an awful lot of things,” Zimmer said. “He helps in blocking in the running game. He’s done a good job really with everything. He’s a smart guy and we’re going to miss him. Rhett’s a good football player and he’s probably a better person.”

Ellison was injured making a catch, of which he had 11 for 124 yards and a touchdown this year.

  1. One of those guys a good team needs. He does all of the things that don’t show up in the box score. I hope there are no long-term effects of this injury. It’s a big one.

  2. Nobody is giving my Vikes a chance on Sunday, but that has actually worked to our advantage in the past (the Cards game that turned around the end of the season…)

    This is a big blow to our running game, but you never know. I give us a 40% chance of winning. Don’t forget the weather might also be a big factor in our favor.

    Regardless, NFC North Champs and on the rise. SKOL Vikes!!!!

  3. As a Seahawks fan, that really is too bad. Every player wants to be healthy and be able to play as they enter the playoff run. We only wish him the best.

  4. Goes to show if a tight end can block he can make it in the league 10 years. Ellison was a role player at USC always sitting behind the flashier names

  5. Get well Rhett, looking forward to having you back next season. Next man up.

    #MinnesotaoverGB
    #SkolVikings

  6. This is a bigger loss than would first appear. Ellison is their best blocking TE. Hope he has a speedy recovery, and is ready for training camp.

    MyCole Pruitt, you’re up.

  7. I’d say the cold temps might help the Vikings, but they’re not used to it really much either. AD probably gunna fumble that pigskin, too.

    Final Score:

    Seattle 19, Vikes 13

  8. You know you are in trouble when the name of your “next man up” is one of those dopey made up names like “MyCole”

    Didn’t his family know how to spell?

    Or did they just think it was cute…

    smh…

  9. Sorry for your loss Vikings fans and sorry for this young man. When Graham went down and I didn’t have any knowledge of patellar tendon tears but looked it up in all sports.

    There is really no one that successfully came back close to what they were. It may be a career ender as you see with Victor Cruz and sadly maybe Jimmy and your young grinder.

  10. Vikings fans confuse me with the weather comments. The Seahawks play outdoors, they have one of the leagues best running games and that was without Lynch who should be back. Not to mention that their QB played his senior season in Wisconsin and had one the best QB ratings ever in CFB. Weather could be a factor, but to both teams.

  11. ot to mention that their QB played his senior season in Wisconsin and had one the best QB ratings ever in CFB.

    I have no dog in this fight, but Wilson DID NOT play in cold weather at Wisconsin. There is a pretty drastic difference between weather in November and weather in January.

    Vikes fan here, I think Seattle is the better team but don’t try to compare outdoor football in Seattle and Minneapolis. There is a big difference between the weather in Seattle in January and the weather in Minneapolis. Kick off temperature is supposed to be -1 before accounting for wind. The average in Seattle is 45…

  13. krm62015..
    Let me explain it to you.
    Average low in Seattle in January – 36
    Average low in Minneapolis – 4

    So, a bit different.

    Not that I think it will make that much of a difference, but I think the point folks are making with the weather comments are actually more related to thinking it might be very cold and snowing, which will limit a passing offense. That’s what hurt the Vikings in the last game really.

    So, it’s more of a nod to the advantage that they think the Hawks have, not a dig that they think Seattle can’t play in cold weather.

    And to be clear… they do NOT play in weather as cold as the Vikings normally do, if that makes any difference.

    That cold can shock you. The Vikings have gotten used to it and done well in it. What was the coldest game Wilson played in November in Wisconsin? Not the same as January.

  22. Seems like the issue isn’t necessarily the tendon repair, it’s that the quad muscles go thru severe atrophy. Players can come back, but it can take much longer than it does for ACL/MCL repairs.

  23. Too bad because he is a very good blocker and about the only chance the Vikings have is feeding the Child Beater the ball over 25 times and let him carry the team on his back.

    Unfortunately, Peterson also has a history of fumbling in the playoffs, not the Vikings get there very often but it seems the brighter the lights, the harder it is for Peterson to hold on to the football.

  24. That said, while the cold can be shocking. The Vikings players are pretty bad playing in it as well. This is a dome team used to playing in warm weather. 25-30 is one thing, but if it is anything in the single digits they will fold just as much.

  25. That is right Seahawks fans, just keep that thought
    How your team is going to blow out the Vikings..
    That is exactly what the Packer fans were posting last week..
    YEP!
    I am exceedingly proud of MY Vikings, they gave us a season where everybody counted them out, they MIGHT have a 9 win season and MIGHT squeek in as the last Wildcard playoff team..
    They have taken on the Personality of their Head coach, Nothing fancy, just a fist full of knuckles in the Mouth, and a Wrestling match in the dirt.
    Win or Lose, NOTHING but a Hats off from this fan!

  26. I remember Rhett as a 10 year old at the sports summer camp I was counselor at in Palo Alto. Really nice kid and a pretty decent athlete, too. Hope he makes a quick and full recovery.

  27. liquidchaoss

    The She-hawks fans ignoring the fact that they lost TWICE to the lowly RAMS (whom the Vikings beat) which is largely why Seattle is the WILDCARD team.

    Exactly right….the Vikings have played so many home games in domes over the past 2 years —- yes, you nailed it!
    Genius!

  29. Time for Mycole Pruitt to step up. He’s no Rhett in a veteran sense. But, he offers mystery vs. Seattle in their knowledge of players. He’s physical, fast, and versatile as receiver. Just not a the blocker Ellison has been.

  30. That is exactly what the Packer fans were posting last week..
    ———–
    No. That is not what anyone said here. There were some that said they would win, but nobody said in a blowout.

    You got curb stomped at home the first time by the Hawks. Nothing has changed. Except your irrational exuberance for being in the playoffs for a change.

  31. Exactly right….the Vikings have played so many home games in domes over the past 2 years —- yes, you nailed it!

    Yes. The entire team was assembled 2 years ago, right? Take a look at the schedule the previous 2 seasons. They didn’t play any cold weather games at home. In 2014 they were at Detroit, Miami and played 1 game at home where they scored a whopping 13 points against a HORRIBLE Bears defense and it was a balmy 27 degrees.

    In 2013 they played the Bears in December at home when the temp was 30 degrees and the Eagles. That’s it.

    So yeah…now tell me your team is built for single digit temperature due to all their experience over the last 2 years.

    Move along…maybe you can have a discussion with the Browns.

  33. The Vikes will miss Rhett, and that injury is a tough one to rehab.

    I’m okay with Hawks fans trolling the Vikes — they certainly have every right given the prior blow-out game and their two recent Super Bowl appearances. However, what is truly amusing is not that there are actually Packer fans trolling after losing their third home divisional game in a row and the NFCN title, but that they must base their comments on the anticipated performance of Seattle since their own team stunk so bad they couldn’t do the job.

    Two days ago at Green Bay it was cold. Gametime temperature was 24 degrees with a wind chill of 13. Vikings won 20-13.

    The week before, the Vikings played a night game against the Giants. The temperature during the game dropped to 12 degrees. Vikings won 49-17.

    Last season, the Vikings played the Panthers in one of the coldest games in team history. Game time temperature was 12 and the wind chill was -7. Vikings won 31-13.

    You did lazy research.

  35. Sour grapes make the sweetest whine!
    Enjoy your one dimensional team that is absolute trash now that A-Rodge looks human. Beating GB at Lambeau to take the division is pretty sweet. A great starting point.

    Bummer about Rhett. A grinder like that is invaluable in a game like Sunday should turn out to be.
    Nice to read some classy comments from Seattle fans. Not my favorite team. Not my favorite fan base, at least as represented on here through recent years of success.
    But refreshing compared to the usual Sconny trolls.
    Would be lying if we didn’t admit the matchup this week is scary as heck. But on the frozen tundra it is often the passing game that struggles, and that has been Seattle’s strength recently. RW has been pretty amazing.
    It’s going to be frigid on Sunday. That could well lead to a grinding war of attrition on the ground. Keep it close and catch a break, maybe a big special teams play.
    Any given Sunday, folks!

    Chase Ford is gone. He is in Baltimore now. Too bad, he was a favorite of mine but they had a surplus of tight ends when they drafted Pruitt. When so many o linemen when down they started using 3 tight ends and could have kept him. But he was already gone.

    As somebody that has lived in extreme temperatures. I can tell you I would rather be in temps nearing zero than in temps between 45-35 degrees.
    The reason? Humidity levels. Lower the temperature means that you won’t get soaked by freezing rain. Get soaked by freezing rain and add in the wind chill is much worse than a freezing temperature with no humidity.

    ___

    The Vikes have been underdogs for several weeks now. Experts are usually picking against them. I don’t know how they are the most overrated team in football, especially since most expect Seattle to roll this one and this is the first time they’ve won their division this decade.

  45. @VFHSM – the temp at the Giants game this season was 13 degrees F. Unless you are claiming that NBC Sports is in on some conspiracy to misrepresent the temp.

    The Carolina game last season was 12 degrees.

    Both games are actually in the top 10 for all time Cold Vikings home games.

    Please check out ESPN1500 for the full list if you don’t believe me.

  46. I find it funny how the Packer Trolls are jumping in behind the Backs of the Seahawk fans, how pathetic!
    The Vikings have proven they can play one on one with some of the best teams in the league this year.
    There would be no shame in falling to the team that has made it to the past 2 Super Bowls, as long as they show up and play a decent game.
    This is a NO WIN situation for any team that plays the Vikings in the post season! The only exception might be Washington should they both survive and win.
    If your team wins, you were favored, if you lose you get embarrassed by a team you should have beaten.
    This is set up to be an upset delight for Minnesota.
    They have already made it through team #1 last week!
    Make fun of us, call us names, Everybody knows the team is about 1/2 way through a total team rebuild with a Home Super Bowl in our sights in
    2 years. Anybody with half a brain can see how much the Vikings are from a 3-13 season just a few years ago. Building the correct way through the Draft, a better record every year while playing a tougher schedule each year.
    This year’s team is only a hint of the things to come!
    The Defense has had a total rebuild, next the Offense will get the same thing.
    The teams in the race this year have gone through this, the Packers peaked last year, the Seahawks the last 2. Cards, and Panthers this year. Broncos too.
    Seahawks will never make it back this year, neither will the Pats.

    Seattle has been passing like crazy. Try catching that frozen rock in -1 degree. Vikes are straight up run first, run second, run third, pass if you must. The colder the better for keeping the score low. Low score gives Vikings a fighting chance against any team.

    Just think about what the Seahawks will do after shutting him down the first time this year in the 38-7 beatdown. The Seahawks rushed for 173 yards in the beatdown with something called Thomas Rawls as their #1 RB. Now add Beastmode to the equation.

    It worked because the Packers WR’s are slower than turtles, not because your run game carried them. Look at how many times they punted after going ahead. This team is screwed.

    Although your points on the actual cold games the Current Vikings have played in has been obliterated in an earlier post, your first point is pretty weak too.

  54. So Randall Cobb is slower than a turtle?

    He is quick, not fast. You need fast to take the top off the defense and he’s not an outside WR, so double him in the middle of the field and you’re set. Teams have been doing it all year.

    Everyone else either came from a different team that played in warm weather or was a dome player.

  56. The main reason the Vikings are used to playing in the cold is because they aren’t used to playing in January.

    The difference between 12 degrees and -1 is a big difference, especially when you’re playing a non-scrub team at home, that DESTROYED you.

    ==================================
    The Seahawks passed and ran all over the Vikings in December. The Hawks ran for 173 yards and 2 TD’s. The Vikings had 16 carries for 31 yards. The Vikings scored zero offensive TD’s against the Seahawks, had 149 total yards and only 9 first downs.

    Vikings fans like to say Teddy does what he’s asked to do. Apparently, Norv told Teddy not to move the team, minimize first downs, and avoid any offensive TD’s against the Seahawks

    Must have been a similar game plan for Teddy last week against the Packers. Keep the passing yards under 100, and no offensive TD’s. If you find yourself in the red zone (a couple of times, as the Vikings did, on a fake punt and a PF penalty) stay out of the end zone and let Blair Walsh kick some field goals.

    He is just a Packer fan that created another screen Name out of SHAME because he doesn’t want to post under his real User ID!

    What time is the Bears game on Sunday?
    ==================================
    Same time as the Vikings’ game a week from this Sunday.

  66. Seattle lost Jimmy Graham weeks ago…so think of the loss as the Vikings got many extra weeks of playing time from their TE that helped to get them to the playoffs. There’s always a silver lining if you look for it.

  67. So…you must think the Vikings will be chasing Eddie Lacy and Aaron Rodgers next year too.
    ————-
    Rodgers is too young to get released and have you beg him to come out of retirement and send Zimmer as the limo driver to pick him up.

    Not sure about Lacy. He did have more rushing yards against the Vikings than the child beater had against the Packers, so anything is possible.

    Shame? Why would I feel shame?

    Truth be told, I had to make another one up because you Viking honks got my other one banned for posting facts that were contradictory and easily proven on NFL.com that you didn’t like.

  69. Idiots. I guess McCarthy wanted Rodgers to throw an interception in the end zone. God most of you guys are such childish idiots!!!!!!!!

  70. Many Packer fans said last Sundays game would be a blowout based on how GB outplayed us earlier in the season. Now we get the same from many Seattle fans that say next Sundays game will be a blowout based on how they outplayed us earlier in the season.

    My question is this – How’d week 17 work out for GB?

    Maybe Jermichael Finley can be had as a replacement. The Vikings love to hire washed up ex Packers.

    Well maybe Lacy to replace the soon to be AARP member Peterson (oops sorry, they don’t accept child abusers), but maybe the Jets might give up Brandon Bostick. He could fill in for Rhett Ellison. I heard he can block also, especially an onsides kick. He’d fit right in with fumblim’ Whip-his-son.
