Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith has been dealing with an ankle injury the last few weeks. It appears as though the injury may have been exacerbated during Thursday night’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Via Tom Pelissero of USA Today, Smith had a walking boot on his left foot and was on crutches in the locker room after the game.

Smith has been listed on the injury report for the Vikings each of the last two weeks. Smith finished the game against Dallas with five tackles – including one tackle for loss – and a quarterback hit on Dak Prescott.

Smith has played in every game for Minnesota so far this season.

  1. Dude got torched in the passing game. This is the excuse Vikings fans need to justify a poor showing at home on a big stage in trying not to lose 6 of 7. Wow.

  2. That explains why he was grossly out of position many times yesterday. I called the deep ball to dez just like collinsworth, But unlike collinsworth, who called it for the timing in the game, I called it because that defensive set up looked very wrong from the beginning of the snap. Preifer or somebody on the field should have called time out. It was obvious they were going to get dez away from Rhodes with that formation. How do I see that and professional coaches/players don’t?

  3. The hits just keep on coming. Harrison is one of their best players and it sounds like he’ll be out at least a few more weeks. Key injuries like this can provide a whole off-season of excuses for the Viking fans, better to justify their wide of the mark projections of winning a Superbowl
