Christian Darrisaw sustains serious ankle injury throughout pregame warmups

Vikings left tackle Christian Darrisaw was questionable for Thursday night’s game against the Eagles due to an ankle injury. In spite of becoming active for the game, he did not play at all. Coach Kevin O’Connell later explained that Darrisaw had aggravated the injury throughout pregame warmups, which occurred right after the deadline for generating players inactive. This absence forced Oli Udoh to take more than as the left tackle. Regrettably, Udoh suffered a knee injury throughout the fourth quarter, with O’Connell expressing concern that it didn’t appear great.

Thankfully, Darrisaw now has a ten-day recovery period just before the Vikings’ subsequent game against the Chargers at property. The challenge with brief-week football is that players who sustain injuries on a Sunday may possibly have been in a position to play if offered a complete week amongst games. With a handful of further days of rest, Darrisaw may possibly have had a improved likelihood of healing with no aggravation. In the occasion that Darrisaw is unable to play, David Quessenberry will most likely step in as the left tackle for Week three against the Chargers.
