Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson forced from TNF with hip injury

Brian Murphy, Twitter - [Full Article]

Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson said he finishes game if it wasn't a blowout and vowed his hip injury would not sideline him for Week 6.

Fantasy Impact: 

The injury doesn't appear to be serious, though Patterson's lack of usage is. He has a 15.8 YPC on 16 career carries, including three carries for 102 yards and a touchdown in Week 1, yet OC Norv Turner has only given him one carry in the four subsequent games. He's not good enough (yet) as a receiver to be a major fantasy force in the passing game only; he needs those carries to boost his value. Until the Vikings show that they're going to find ways to get him the ball, he should take a seat on the fantasy bench.
