One member of the Vikings will be using the pre-camp break to rehab from recent surgery.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that tight end David Morgan had arthroscopic surgery on his knee recently. He is expected to be ready for training camp.

Morgan joined the Vikings as a sixth-round pick in 2016 and has appeared in 38 games over the last three seasons. Most of his work on offense has come as a blocking complement to Kyle Rudolph and Morgan has 16 catches for 135 yards and a touchdown for his career.

Rudolph remains with the Vikings after signing a new contract this offseason and the team drafted Irv Smith Jr. in the second round, so Morgan may be looking at a different role in his fourth season in Minnesota.

  1. I hope for their sake he heals up well. This guy sucks but he is way better than their total flop TE draft pick from last year, Tyler Conklin.

    Terrible depth at TE on this team.

    Horrible depth is kind of a theme throughout on this team.

  2. Leave to our friends to the east to talk about depth and over paying tight ends.

    Funny, they pay their starting TE millions more than Rudolph and that starter had half the TDs.

    If the worst thing they can find to troll about is our #3 or #4 Te, we’re in great shape.

  3. If the Vikings don’t win the Super Bowl this year, they’ll point to this surgery (and the refs) as the main reason why.

  4. Well, we certainly know knee surgery won’t noticeably slow Morgan down, seeing as how he can be timed with a sun dial anyhow. Not that it matters, as he’s primarily on the team for blocking. And you are right GTO, of all fans criticizing the Vikes’ TE group, fans of the Green Bay Grahams should be the last to speak.

  5. Retaining Rudolph at his price looks like an effective insurance premium, at the moment. Good move by the Vikings.

    Thank you for the positive comment & for the sportsmanship, it’s nice to see among all the other stuff people tend to post.

  7. An excellent blocking TE, hope he mends quickly. Conklin is up and coming and Irv Smith will prove to be the best TE of the draft, so not sweating this much anyway.

    Please child

  9. I could see Morgan getting cut this summer. I am not sure that the Vikings can afford to keep a TE that is mainly another blocker.
