Vikings cornerback Andrew Booth‘s rookie season is reportedly over.

Booth had knee surgery on Monday and word was that his recovery timeline would be determined once doctors decided what kind of procedure he needed to repair his injury. Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that they determined he needed an operation that will not allow him to return before the year is out.

Booth was a second-round pick this year and missed time earlier in the season with a quad injury. He played his first defensive snaps in Week 11 and made his first start against the Patriots last Thursday. He recorded 12 tackles in six overall appearances.

The Vikings hope to get Cam Dantzler back from injured reserve in December. Until then, they’ll have Patrick Peterson, Chandon Sullivan, Akayleb Evans, Kris Boyd, and Duke Shelley as their available corners.

  1. Booth wasn’t starting, even when Dantzler went to IR they used 4th round pick Evans over him, and only put Booth in when Evans was knocked out with a concussion. Booth was immediately targeted by opposing quarterbacks, Allen, Prescott and Jones. He may have good longer term potential but at this point he was a liability in coverage. Hopefully Evans and Dantzler can come back.

    So right now while the Vikings top two draft picks… Cine and Booth… saw minimal action and were promptly lost for the season once they did.

  2. Get some rest and hope for a trade of this non-contender, pretender squad.

    The Vikings aren’t doing anything in the post season anyways.

  3. It sure would be nice to have Jameson Williams or Christian Watson on this team right now instead of the guys they were traded for, Cine and Booth. Absolutely no contributions from their top two picks and now they’re looking for a deep threat wide receiver.

  4. Booth was a top 5 CB in this draft by people that cover the college game. He was hurt from training camp on. Heal up and see what next year brings for both Booth and Cine. Having said that it doesn’t mean these were terrible draft picks like some here are suggesting.
