On Monday, the National Football League announced that Minnesota Vikings’ safety Andrew Sendejo would be suspended for one game for the hit he put on Baltimore Ravens’ wide receiver Mike Wallace in Minnesota’s Week 7 victory. The team announced that Sendejo would appeal, and in what might be the fastest turnaround in league history, we have the results of that appeal.
The league upheld Sendejo’s suspension, meaning that the Vikings’ starting safety will be sitting out of this Sunday’s game in London against the Cleveland Browns.
This will be the second game that Sendejo has missed in the last three for the Vikings. He missed the Vikings’ victory over the Green Bay Packers with a groin issue, and will now miss Sunday’s contest as well.
When Sendejo missed the game against Green Bay, it was third-year man Anthony Harris that stepped into his spot and played relatively well. I would assume that Harris will get the start on Sunday at Twickenham Stadium as well. Sendejo will be ready to go again after the Vikings’ bye week.
