The injuries continue to pile up for the Minnesota Vikings, and again the affected unit is the offensive line.
Left guard Alex Boone appeared to injure his right leg during the second quarter of the Vikings’ game against the Carolina Panthers, and wound up having to be carted back to the locker room. The injury came on a run play that saw Jerick McKinnon go wide around the left side for a three-yard gain.
At this point, the word from the Vikings’ sideline is that Boone has a hip injury and is likely not going to return to today’s contest. He was replaced at the left guard spot by Jeremiah Sirles, who the Vikings traded for prior to the 2015 season and was inactive for all of last year.
Again, the Minnesota Vikings appear to have lost left guard Alex Boone, at least for today, with a right hip injury. When we have more information on things, we will effort to bring it to you here as soon as we can.
