Vikings Placing Antonio Richardson On Injured Reserve

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

A player that many thought would be one of the bigger steals of the undrafted free agency period for the Minnesota Vikings won't be seeing the field this year.

Per numerous sources, the Vikings will be placing offensive tackle Antonio Richardson. . .you may know him as "Tiny". . .on injured reserve, ending his season.

Richardson, who was originally projected to be as high as a second-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, instead didn't hear his name called on draft weekend and was signed by the Vikings as an undrafted free agent shortly thereafter. Per Darren Wolfson, Richardson needs surgery on both knees and was injured again on Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans.

The Vikings should be close to finalizing their 53-man roster before too much longer, as the deadline is just minutes away. Who will make the final roster? Keep an eye on our stream to keep up to date!
