Vikings Starting Tackle In Concussion Protocol

The Minnesota Vikings are coming off one of the most incredible games the NFL has seen in recent memory, with a huge Overtime victory over the talented Buffalo Bills, but unfortunately, it's not all good news for Minnesota, as starting left tackle Christian Darrisaw has now entered the NFL's concussion protocol.

Darrisaw was one of three starters that left the game due to an injury, with both Za'Darius Smith and Akayleb Evans joining him, and with another massive game upcoming against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11, Minnesota would love to have Darrisaw back, as he's been playing at a very, very high level thus far in 2022.

The Vikings drafted him in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft, with the No. 23 overall pick, and he has appeared in 20 games, starting 18 since that time, and now, if Minnesota are to make a deep run in 2022, they'll need him healthy to protect Kirk Cousins, as he has played at a Pro Bowl level this year, so the team will desperately need him going forward.
