Abdullah, Herrera Rule Out; Erin Henderson, Shiancoe Questionable

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 18, 2011 – 2:33 pm

On Friday the Vikings and Raiders ruled several starters out of this weekend’s game at Mall of America Field. Let’s get to the details.

For the Vikings, S Husain Abdullah (concussion) and RG Anthony Herrera (knee) have been ruled out. For the Raiders, RB Darren McFadden (foot) and CB Chris Johnson (groin/hamstring) have also been ruled out. Others who will not play include Chris Cook (not injury-related) for the Vikings and QB Jason Campbell (collarbone) and WR Jacoby Ford (foot) for the Raiders.

The Vikings have ruled LB Erin Henderson (hamstring) and TE Visanthe Shiancoe as questionable for the game; both players have been limited the last two days of practice. The Vikings listed WR Michael Jenkins (knee), LS Cullen Loeffler (shoulder) and QB Christian Ponder (hand) as probable.

The Raiders have listed Michael Huff, Michael Mitchell, Richard Seymour, Manase Tonga and DeMarcus Van Dyke as questionable and Kevin Boss, Matt Giordano, Sebastian Janikowski and Samson Satele as probable.

    This story is too crazy to believe. I think the Packers fabricated it to build trade value for a backup QB. The story reports that Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings would side with making Flynn the starting QB in Green Bay.

    Are you kidding? Rodgers is on pace to break an NFL pássing record, and the Packers actually expect us to believe that pláyers are eager to replace him? It looks a lot more like Ted Thompson is trying to pull an “Andy Reid” with his nobody QB.

    Some reason I couldn’t post the link – but do a search for Packers QB Controversy. It should be the first result.

    With Abdullah ruled out, I hope that we get a chance to see the late draft pick. The “Vets” haven’t been cutting it at the position, so this would be a good chance to evaluate the young talent.

    Meanwhile, Herrera is looking far too injury prone. Even if he were a good guard, I would want the team to cut him loose in the offseason for someone who can be more reliable.

    I call BULLSH1T on that story also unless those players are crazy and actually since Nelson resigned with the Pack he very well might be.

    Abdullah’s injury could give Mistral Raymond #41 a chance to prove himself therefore allowing the Vikes to rid themselfs of the void in space known as T. Johnson. Maybe give Fusco and Love a chance for the OLine I mean Ponder would not have to do anything more if they turn out to be cr@p since Herrera is and Berger is a back up.

    Regarding the GB quarterback “controversy”, I think if you reread the article you will find out the comments by Nelson and Jennings were tongue-in-cheek, not serious. The article was written in response to the fact that Flynn was able to walk all over our Vikes with no problem!

    (8 Offensive Linemen selected in the last 9 years, TWO in the last FIVE years)
    (and the numbers are not much better for defensive backs)


    You must know that if you have an opportunity to play a lot of defense, you will also make a lot of tackles. Hence Robison, JAllen, and Griffen have a shot at the Pro Bowl.

    I would rather have our offense make more 1st downs, keep the defense off the field, and win games.

    You must know that…as long as you ignore a problem, the more likely it is to get worse. So why do you think that the Vikings will just automatically start spending their money and draft picks on OLs and DBs???

    I agree with you Fred about the players that should of but were not drafted. However, let us see what players are taken in the up and coming draft. That should be a good indication who is making the decision’s. Not to go by previous draft’s but what is coming down the pipe.

    @ Fred Jones , stop posting that same annoying comment !

    @Fred Jones if your gonna push the OLine try giving us some names to watch out for. Yes the Vikings need OLine but just stating that does not help.

    Dude that was a joke article about making flynn like kolb this past year. The players were joking….the article was titled “tongue and cheek,”

    @Craig Pretty sure we know that. They are just trying to build trade value for Flynn. But beating a aweful secondary like the Vikings doesn’t prove jacksh1t.
