Vikings place Eric Kendricks, Christian Darrisaw on COVID-19 list

USA TODAY Sports

The Vikings placed several players on their COVID-19 list on Monday, including linebacker Eric Kendricks.

In his seventh season, Kendricks leads Minnesota with 143 total tackles in 2021. He’s also recorded 5.0 sacks, a pair of interceptions, and four passes defensed.

Minnesota also placed left tackle Christian Darrisaw, left guard Ezra Cleveland, right tackle Brian O’Neill, and safety Camryn Bynum on the COVID-19 list.

All five players will have a chance to be available for Week 18 based on the league’s updated COVID-19 protocols.

The Vikings will play their season finale against the Bears on Sunday. Both teams have been eliminated from postseason contention.

  1. The whole team was spotted licking each other’s noses, trying to get out there.

  2. Time to play the back-ups that you think might be on the roster next year anyway. Or don’t. If Zimmer is back, does any of it really matter?

  3. Packer fans are all in. There is no declaring; “well, we did better than the Vikings” if you lose in the post season. You have married yourselves to all or nothing. And if it is nothing, then you better have the balls to come back here and declare you are not the best team. And if it is all? Well, you shall have your cake and eat it too, and I will declare that you are the best for this season.

  4. Time to test drive Brandel and Davis and other practice squad players. Look to the future, this season is over

  5. I like Vikings fans who think they’ve had a successful season as long as the Packers don’t win another Super Bowl. 🤣

    Best team or not, they’re simply better than the Vikings and always have been and using your criteria, will continue to do so until the Vikings surpass Green Bay in titles. Unlikely to EVER happen.

    Viking fans crow about the Packers losing games they can’t even get to – that is championship games in the playoffs.

  7. You can’t start Cousins if 3/5 of the offensive line is out. Let’s sit all the starters and finally lose a meaningless game that can give them a higher draft pick.

  8. They’re vaccinated and have a chance to be back — unlike dopes like Cousins and Rodgers who are and/or were time bombs waiting to tank their respective teams’ seasons. I was considering showing some respect on these boards when the Pack season ends, but can see now that won’t be deserved.

  9. We’re already rationalizing getting nasty to the fans of the team to our east if they’re stopped short of winning it all.

  10. This could be the Packers’ year. It should be because, seriously, you’ve had 2 HOF QBs over about a 30 year span and only 2 Super Bowls??

  11. “ Zimmer is back, does any of it really matter?”

    If you remember back to his first years coaching he surrounded himself with former head coaches. They didn’t always agree but he had a fountain of ideas and experience to draw on. He has none of that now and he is not as effective. It is his coaching staff as much as anything that is lacking. But no one any good is going to jump on board with a coach on the hot seat. I hate to say it because I liked him initially but Nothing gets better until Zimmer is gone. He can’t do it alone and with the stench of death around his head coaching position no good coordinators will sign on for a one year deal.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    How convenient for you. The bar you set for the Packers is win the SuperBowl or the season is a bust. The bar you set for the Vikings is not to be mathematically eliminated by Thanksgiving. That’s fair.

  13. I hope those Packer fans don’t bring up how many HOF careers (on both sides of the ball) our Vikes have wasted in the last sixty years with no Lombardis to show for it.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz It’s that easy, huh? The Vikings have had more HOF quarterbacks than the Packers, more All-Pro quarterbacks than the Packers, and more Pro-Bowl designee quarterbacks than the Packers. Why don’t they have five SuperBowls?
