Vikings left tackle Christian Darrisaw did not play on Thanksgiving because of a concussion and head coach Kevin O’Connell didn’t offer much of an idea about when he might be back when he spoke to reporters on Wednesday.

Darrisaw’s most recent concussion came days after he had been cleared from one he suffered the previous weekend and O’Connell said the team is going to take as long as necessary to be sure that Darrisaw is 100 percent.

“We want him feeling great and at full capacity when he’s able to come back,” O’Connell said, via Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com. “And not really putting a timetable on it for either this week or beyond . . . We just want to make sure he’s good. I think when the time’s right we’ll have CD back in there.”

O’Connell is more optimistic about having defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson back from a calf injury. Tomlinson last played in Week Eight.

  1. Getting the big dogs healthy should be a top priority if we want to survive round one, much less beyond.

  2. PFF’s highest rated tackle. No need to rush him back but I hope it doesn’t take too long.

    I prefer teams that prioritize player safety.

    Um. The Packers brought back many of their players at the end of last year before they were healthy. See Z Smith, David Baktieri and Alexander. And your QB has a brain injury.
