Vikings Rookie Cornerback Out For Season

The rookie cornerback is done for the season.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell said that cornerback Andrew Booth is done for the season after having undergone knee surgery. 

O'Connell initially said on Monday that the injury is something that is ''either going to be something that potentially ends his season'' or a situation that could see him return ''at some point in January.''

The rookie second-round pick began earning a role on defense starting Week 10, and he recorded 12 total tackles in his last two games played. Over his first six NFL games, the twenty-two-year-old has 12 total tackles. 

Booth was the Vikings' second-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

With Booth out for the rest of the season, Kris Boyd will likely handle an increased role on defense.
