Jerick McKinnon tears ACL Alexander Mattison Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , out for season Amidst all of the excitement and news happening Saturday on roster cutdown day, the news came out that the Minnesota Vikings’ opponent this coming Sunday has lost a pretty big piece of their offense and a name familiar to fans of the Vikings.Our friends over at Niners Nation, among others, are reporting that running back Jerick McKinnon has torn an ACL and will miss the 2018 season.McKinnon spent his first four seasons with the Vikings after the team made him a third-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. A quarterback in college at Georgia Southern, McKinnon shifted to running back and served as both a backup to Adrian Peterson, as well as part of a tandem with Matt Asiata when Peterson missed time in both 2014 and 2016. After Dalvin Cook was injured last season, McKinnon teamed with Latavius Murray in the Vikings’ backfield, and this past offseason was given a huge four-year Minnesota Vikings Jerseys 2019 , $30 million contract to be the primary back in San Francisco.McKinnon had missed a portion of camp prior to Saturday with a calf injury. The reports say that McKinnon’s injury was a non-contact injury suffered on the final play of practice on Saturday. With McKinnon on the shelf, it looks like the Niners’ running game next Sunday will be a combination of Matt Breida and the newly-signed Alfred Morris.It’s a tough break for an old friend, and hopefully McKinnon will be able to make a full recovery and be able to make an impact with the Niners in 2019. Last May, Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins compared Kyle Rudolph to a mattress. Come September, the connection was, relatively speaking, comatose.This year, things could be different.“I’ve done a better job this camp . . . of just trusting him more and throwing it to him even when he’s covered Olisaemeka Udoh Jersey nfl draft ,” Cousins told reporters on Wednesday. “I think today there were probably two or three examples of him catching the ball with the defender draped over him or pretty close to him. He is just such a trustworthy target, so little things like that, building a chemistry with him, you would’ve loved to say I did that last year, but I don’t think I did enough.”So what has changed?“He just continues to show that when you throw it to him in those moments, he makes you right,” Cousins said. “He catches it. The play he made in the back of the end zone today was just really impressive. He kind of ran out of real estate and stopped, and just had to kind of post-up Minnesota Vikings Jerseys 2019 , just did a great job of walling the defender without committing a pass interference and then making a strong catch. He did a similar thing in a corner route in the front corner of the end zone at the end of practice and he had a couple others through 7-on-7s and other periods in previous days, so the more you do it the more you see it, the more you realize that’s a strength of his. I guess look back and regret a little bit not doing that more with him last year and then look forward to this year and giving him more opportunities to make it right. When really everything in you is telling you, ‘Hey, he’s really not open, but let’s give him a shot.'”Cousins attributed the different not to trust but to reps.“When you really think about it, it was, I think Olisaemeka Udoh Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , 13 practices last spring and then you have training camp and then from there you really go back to scout team,” Cousins said. “It is hard to build that because the scout team guys aren’t really covering you, they are just kind of shadowing you. The number of full-speed practices you have to build that repertoire of understanding your players is not as much as you’d like to have. I think the more years together tends to develop that.”That’s what the Vikings are hoping will happen this year, but it’s another example of why the expectations for the Vikings got out of whack in 2018. This year, the Vikings seem to be in far better position to contend for the playoffs; last year, they got close. This year, maybe they’ll pull it off.
