Athat possibility"A promising rookie season for Minnesota Vikings cornerback Mike Hughes was cut short in the teams Week 6 victory over the Arizona Cardinals by a torn ACL. Now Womens Stefon Diggs Jersey , just a few weeks after we got word that Hughes was, apparently, ahead of schedule in his rehab, a well-placed Vikings source is raising the spectre that Hughes might not be ready for the 2019 regular season opener.During his radio show on KFAN, Vikings play-by-play announcer Paul Allen said that he would bet on Hughes not being active when the Vikings host the Atlanta Falcons to kick off the 2019 NFL season.This could present pretty significant issues for the Vikings as they prepare to face Julio Jones and company. The team will already be without Holton Hill at cornerback, as hell be serving the first game of his four-game suspension for violating the leagues policy against performance enhancing substances. No Hughes and no Hill would leave a lot of work for Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes, and Mackensie Alexander. . .plus whoever would be behind them of any of them were to suffer some sort of injury.Obviously, theres still plenty of time to go and plenty of rehab work to be done before we know whether or not Hughes will be ready to go for the opener. However, the 2019 regular season opener comes about ten and a half months after Hughes suffered his injury, and that time frame might put him a little short of a full recovery.At this point Chuck Foreman Jersey , it will be interesting to see if Hughes starts Training Camp on the Physically Unable to Perform List and whether or not he remains there into the regular season. If that were to happen, Hughes would be forced to miss the teams first six games, per NFL rules.

These same two teams faced off 16 years ago, in what would become the beginning of a dynasty. Will Sunday be the end of that dynasty? It would make for good headlines and lots of media babbling......err......chatter, so I could see it being allowed to happ.........I mean, so I could see it happening. Time will tell.One thing I DO know is that Brady does not compare to the great quarterbacks of the past. Talk all day long about yards and comebacks, blah blah blah. He didnt take abuse like the quarterbacks did a couple decades ago http://www.thevikingslockerroom.com/authentic-fran-tarkenton-jersey , and the rules werent configured to allow offenses to have a free run at obscene passing stats. I dont think hed have lasted a year if he had to endure punishment like quarterbacks did a couple decades ago. You know, before the league changed the rules after they came to the conclusion that more passing yards equals more $$$$ from tickets and league endorsed flip-flops. Thats my two cents worth, which, after you consider the cost of producing two pennies, is actually worth less than zero, so you just lost money by reading that. Around the DN since our last open thread:Wludford put together an in-depth profile of draft prospect, Dalton Risner.

This was in response to a lawsuit filed by whiners fans who wanted the end of this years NFCCG to be replayed. Yes, I think they were serious. Theres nothing in the story where the Saints would then forfeit their appearance in Super Bowl XLIV, and allow the Vikings and Colts to replay the game. Oh, and also immediately implement the lifetime suspensions of Sean Payton and Gregggggggggggggggg Williams. We come to todays media selection:We played a highlight reel of Adrian Peterson yesterday, now lets watch another Viking who was one of the best of all time at his position. This is a highlight reel of Randy Moss wearing purple and gold (sometimes white and purple, but you know what I mean).Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:No discussion of politics or religionNo feeding of the trollsThis isnt a male version of The View John Randle Jersey , so leave the gender hatred at the doorKeep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tagsNo pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employerIf you cant disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go awayWhile navigating the open thread, just assume its sarcasmWith that, the beer light is on and the bar is open.
