  • Minnesota Vikings OTAs: Is it possible Mike Hughes won’t be ready for Week 1?
    by Christopher Gates on May 23, 2019 at 4:16 pm

    At least one well-placed source is raising that possibility A promising rookie season for Minnesota Vikings’ cornerback Mike Hughes was cut short in the team’s Week 6 victory over the Arizona Cardinals by a torn ACL. Now, just a few weeks after we got word that Hughes was, apparently, ahead of schedule in his rehab, a well-placed Vikings’ source is raising the spectre that Hughes might not be ready for the 2019 regular season opener. Paul Allen on KFAN said he would bet on #Vikings CB Mike Hughes NOT being active Week 1 against Atlanta.Hughes tore his ACL during a Week 6 win over Arizona last season and had surgery Oct. 23rd. He’s been rehabbing with trainers during OTAs.— Sean Borman (@SeanBoarMan) May 23, 2019 During his radio show on KFAN, Vikings play-by-play announcer Paul Allen said that he would bet on Hughes not being active when the Vikings host the Atlanta Falcons to kick off the 2019 NFL season. This could present pretty significant issues for the Vikings as they prepare to face Julio Jones and company. The team will already be without Holton Hill at cornerback, as he’ll be serving the first game of his four-game suspension for violating the league’s policy against performance enhancing substances. No Hughes and no Hill would leave a lot of work for Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes, and Mackensie Alexander. . .plus whoever would be behind them of any of them were to suffer some sort of injury. Obviously, there’s still plenty of time to go and plenty of rehab work to be done before we know whether or not Hughes will be ready to go for the opener. However, the 2019 regular season opener comes about ten and a half months after Hughes suffered his injury, and that time frame might put him a little short of a full recovery. At this point, it will be interesting to see if Hughes starts Training Camp on the Physically Unable to Perform List and whether or not he remains there into the regular season. If that were to happen, Hughes would be forced to miss the team’s first six games, per NFL rules. […]

  • Stefon Diggs missed a couple days of OTAs, and seriously who cares?
    by Christopher Gates on May 22, 2019 at 6:13 pm

    They’re voluntary, after all With OTAs getting underway this week in Eagan, the Minnesota Vikings currently have 89 players on the 90-man roster in attendance for the voluntary workouts. The one absence from the voluntary workouts? Wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who is not at the workouts because. . .well, nobody knows why, and it doesn’t matter why. They’re voluntary workouts, after all. One guy that’s not worried about Diggs not being at the voluntary workouts? His coach. Mike Zimmer said he is not concerned that Stefon Diggs not at OTAs— Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) May 22, 2019 For the record, however, it sounds like Diggs’ absence is going to be limited. Cousins mentioned that he looks forward to Diggs coming to practice "tomorrow" so he'll participate through most of OTAs it seems— Arif Hasan (@ArifHasanNFL) May 22, 2019 Seriously, I’m not sure why anyone speculates or gets bent out of shape when guys miss voluntary workouts. I don’t think Diggs has anything to be angry with the Vikings over, given that he just signed a significant contract extension with the team a year ago. If this was the team’s mandatory mini-camp and Diggs (or anyone else) wasn’t there, then there would be reason for gnashing of teeth and rending of garments. But it’s not, so if there’s anyone out there that was seriously worried about this or thought that it was an indicator of something bigger. . .well, it’s not. […]
