MNF Injury Report - Peterson PROBABLE, Jacobs QUESTIONABLE

Saturday, October 19, 2013, 5:37pm

VIKINGS DOUBTFUL CB A.J. Jefferson (ankle) QUESTIONABLE T Matt Kalil (back), WR Rodney Smith (hip) PROBABLE DE Jared Allen (ankle), TE Rhett Ellison (knee), RB Adrian Peterson (hamstring), QB Christian Ponder (rib), CB Xavier Rhodes (ankle), C John Sullivan (hand), K Blair Walsh (left hamstring), DT Kevin Williams (knee), WR Jarius Wright (ankle) GIANTS OUT CB Jayron Hosley (hamstring), RB David Wilson (neck) QUESTIONABLE RB Brandon Jacobs (hamstring), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (illness), TE Adrien Robinson (foot), DT Shaun Rogers (knee), S Cooper Taylor (shoulder) PROBABLE C David Baas (neck), CB Terrell Thomas (knee), CB Corey Webster (groin)

Fantasy Impact:
Peterson is listed as probable and was limited in practice on Saturday after not practicing on Friday. He's expected to play. Jacobs did not practice on Saturday after being limited Thursday and Friday. It very well could be to make sure he's OK for the game, but it could also be a setback, so he's a little more risky. Michael Cox and newly-signed Peyton Hillis are the only backs behind Jacobs, so if you need Jacobs in your lineup, there isn't exactly a dependable backup plan you can put in place.

Friday, October 11, 2013, 7:17pm

Vikings K Blair Walsh (left hamstring, questionable) missed practice Friday after taking limited reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 6. Walsh owners should have a backup plan ready to go Sunday morning if Walsh is deemed inactive. The Vikings have yet to sign a kicker to replace Walsh, which is a good sign.

Vikings release Ryan Longwell

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Minnesota Vikings have released 16-year veteran kicker Ryan Longwell, the latest and perhaps most dangerous turnover to date in their rebuilding project. The surprising move was made Monday, a little more than a week after the team drafted Georgia kicker Blair Walsh in the sixth round. Longwell had three seasons and $7 million left on a four-year contract he signed last summer that included a $3.5 million signing bonus.
