Another Defensive Starter Lost

Yeah. . .this is just what we needed to see before the big game with Chicago on Sunday.

Minnesota Vikings defensive end Erasmus James will have season-ending surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

James got hurt on a running play late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over Carolina. He will likely rehabilitate the knee for a couple of weeks before having the operation, coach Brad Childress said Monday.

Man, this sucks. . .James was primed for a big year, and looked pretty impressive against the Panthers yesterday.
