The Vikings are promoting a wide receiver before tonight’s game against the Seahawks, so they needed a roster spot.

Via Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Vikings are putting linebacker Ben Gedeon on injured reserve.

Gedeon had been ruled out of tonight’s game against the Seahawks after suffering his second concussion of the season on Nov. 17 against the Broncos.

The 2017 fourth-rounder has started 22 games the last three seasons, and

The Vikings are promoting wide receiver Alexander Hollins so they’ll have four healthy wideouts tonight.

  1. I don’t think it would matter if Minnesota had Antonio Brown for tonight. The Seahawks are overdue for one of their ‘put it all together’ games and……since Clara just opened the door for the outright division lead, it’s all Seattle no matter what.

  2. There is no such things as a team being “due”. They either play well or they don’t. And the Seahawks are 3-2 at home, and give up a ton of points. No question, the Seahawks have to outpoint the Vikings tonight. The weather looks good for some Vikings TD’s, by air and ground.

  3. Thielen was ruled out yesterday afternoon….

    This is bad news though. Ben was a pretty big part of special teams and was starting to make a name for himself at linebacker.

  4. There very much is such a thing as a team being due. Example: going into week two against Green Bay, the Pack hadn’t beaten the Vikings since 2017. They were due for a win against my squad and I knew it before the season even started.

  5. No matter how we got there it was still the expected result.

    Good point though, the refs giving the Pack pretty much all of the calls is also really a thing, and there’s mountains of evidence to support that…

    GB hadn’t beat MN since the 1st mtg of 2016. I was at the historic Viking shutout of GB in Lambeau in ’17. Det shut them out last yr in Lambeau 31-0 so some luster was taken off the Viking shutout. Vikes swept them in 17, won and tied in 18.

  7. 4 healthy wideouts and just the one “good” one. Of course that would still be the case if Thielen was healthy.

    Since week 9 of last season, Thielen has as many 100 yard games as Valdes-Scantling.

    Teams have figured out your little diva receiver. Fact.

  8. This is bad news!. He’s had two concussions this year, and being put on IR for a head injury is never good. I wouldn’t be surprised if he retires.

    The pack still needed the refs to take a TD off the board from the Vikings to win in week 2 mike.

    Right, because clear cut rules that affect every other team in the league shouldn’t apply to the Vikings.
    Got it!

  10. “Clear cut rules”? That was the first and only time in the history of the NFL that a TD was taken off the board via replay from NY for OPI on a player who wasn’t even involved in the play. Preferential calls for the home team in Lambeau, on the other hand, are the only “clear cut rules” that every NFL fan has witnessed this season, multiple times.
