Vikings/Rams early injury reports: Big names hurt on both sides With both teams getting ready for Thursday Night Football Womens Anthony Barr Jersey , we’re getting injury reports for both the Minnesota Vikings and the Los Angeles Rams earlier than we would normally get them. From the looks of things right now, both sides could be missing some pretty significant players.For the Vikings, starting left tackle Riley Reiff did not practice for the Vikings on Tuesday. If Reiff can’t go for the Vikings, they suddenly have a huge problem on the offensive line against one of the best front lines in the NFL. (Well, as opposed to the huge problems they already have. . .missing Reiff would be a ridiculously huge problem as opposed to just a moderately huge problem.) I’m not sure what Plan B at left tackle is at this point. It could be Rashod Hill, who has played there in the past. It could be Mike Remmers, who has also played there in the past. If it’s Hill, one would have to assume that rookie Brian O’Neill, who has actually been solid in relief the couple of times he played this year, would start at right tackle. If it’s Remmers, I don’t know how the Vikings would configure things.In addition, running back Dalvin Cook was a limited participant in practice today. He missed the Buffalo game with a hamstring issue , but it was thought that he’d be ready for this one. On the bright side, cornerback Trae Waynes was a full participant in today’s practice after suffering an ankle injury against Buffalo.For the Rams, they could be without both of their starting cornerbacks on Thursday night. Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib both left the Rams’ win in the Battle of Los Angeles over the Chargers on Sunday, both with lower leg injuries. Peters suffered a calf injury that some feared was an Achilles tear, while Talib has an ankle injury. If the Rams are without both of those guys on Thursday, it could be the Vikings can take advantage of. . .you know, if Kirk Cousins gets an opportunity to look at the coverage for more than .2 seconds before he has to take actions to preserve his life.Linebacker Mark Barron has also been sitting out of practices for the Rams this week with an ankle injury.Both teams will have their final injury reports tomorrow, but that’s a primary look at what we can expect. The Minnesota Vikings travel to the Meadowlands to face the New York Jets.Minnesota is coming off two solid wins against the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals. The Jets are riding a two game win streak, as well. New York blew out the Denver Broncos 34-16, and beat the Indianapolis Colts in a 42-34 shootout. The Vikings are only three point favorites. Some people take that as a slap in the face, but what the hay, who cares. Here’s this week’s three things to watch:The Vikings passing gameThe Jets have a couple defensive backs ruled out for Sunday , along with one who is considered doubtful. Safety Marcus Maye (thumb) and cornerback Buster Skrine (concussion) will not be playing against the Vikings. Cornerback Trumaine Johnson is considered doubtful with quadricep issues. This is will be beneficial for Kirk Cousins and his offense. Skrine is typically New York’s slot corner. Adam Thielen should have some fun, considering 68 percent of his targets this season have come from the slot. Thielen will be going for his seventh consecutive 100-receiving yard game (apparently that’s not a big deal to some people). Currently, the Jets’ pass rush is 19th in the league, and 22nd for pass defense. Hopefully this means that Captain Kirk will get some more time in the pocket to find an open man. Cousins completed 24-of-34 passes, and managed to throw for 240 yards, one touchdown and one interception. It was nice seeing the run game rush for near 200 yards, and Cousins still being able to chuck the ball for over 200 yards. With a banged up D, I can see similar success as last week. Will Sam Darnold be the real deal?Jets rookie quarterback Sam Darnold apparently may be the Jets’ savior, or at least giving New York fans hope. But, based off his stats on paper, I don’t really understand all the praise. He’s had three games where he’s completed less than half of his passes. Maybe it’s the future Darnold that fans are excited about. This will be the third rookie quarterback that the Vikings face.However, Darnold is coming off his best performance so far this season. He completed 24-of-30 passes for 280 yards Womens Andrew Sendejo Jersey , two touchdowns and one interception. On the season, he has averaged 224 passing yards per game. He’s thrown nine touchdowns and seven interceptions. Darnold will be without one of his top targets in Quincy Enunwa. While Terrelle Pryor is listed as doubtful and Isaiah Crowell is questionable. That would leave Jermaine Kearse and Robby Anderson as the two wideouts to get more looks. Bilal Powell could have an increased workload in the passing game. Sheldon Richardson returns to the Meadowlands According to a Star Tribune article, Richardson claims that he has no qualms with the team that drafted him 13th overall in the 2013 NFL Draft, and the issues that he had in the past were his own fault. When he was traded to Seattle last year, he was given a new opportunity. Now, he’s embracing every moment of it. Richardson has been a solid presence on the defensive line for Minnesota this season. He has 20 combined tackles on the year, along with one sack. He leads the defense for quarterback hits with 10. This will be the first time he will face his old team. I’ll be curious to see how the crows reacts to him, if at all. With the absence of Everson Griffen, it’s really paying off that we grabbed Richardson in the off-season. Predictions: Sheldon Richardson takes Darnold down once for a sack.The defense holds the Jets’ run game (seventh in the league) to only 65 yards. Latavius Murray rushes for at least 100 yards. George Iloka will record his first interception in a Vikings uniform. Vikings win 27-13.SKOL
