Erin Henderson Suspended for Four Games

Is your last name Henderson?  If so. . .you might want to keep that to yourself for a while.

Last Sunday in Arizona, we saw Vikings' linebacker E.J. Henderson suffer a fractured femur against the Cardinals, an injury that ended his season and has put his career in jeopardy.  Today, word has come down that E.J.'s younger brother, Erin, has been suspended for four games by the NFL for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances.

Erin Henderson took his brother's place on the active roster prior to this past weekend's game against Cincinnati, and recorded three special teams tackles in Minnesota's 30-10 victory over Cincinnati.  Now, he will miss the final three games of the 2009 regular season, as well as Minnesota's first post-season contest.

The Vikings have promoted linebacker J Leman from the practice squad to take the place of Henderson the Younger, and have re-signed CB Deandre Wright to the practice squad.
