    Vikings have COVID issues

    Vikings guard Dru Samia tested positive for COVID-19 on Sunday morning, according to a league source, before the team was scheduled to depart for Chicago.

    Samia is the second Vikings player to test positive for the virus in the past two weeks. He will not be available for Monday night’s game against the Bears. Any close contacts deemed “high-risk” by the league and team will be quarantined and cannot travel for Monday night’s game.

    Linebacker Todd Davis returned from the COVID-19 reserve list this week after a positive test led to 10 days in quarantine. Symptomatic cases require at least a 10-day isolation, according to NFL protocols, while asymptomatic cases can return as early as five days. Cornerback Cameron Dantzler and long snapper Austin Cutting have isolated in recent weeks because they were close contacts with an infected individual.

    The Vikings may need to turn to center/guard Brett Jones for offensive line help, but they’ll have to sign him to the 53-man roster. NFL rules prohibit the Vikings from elevating him from the practice squad for a third straight game. Aviante Collins is also an option on the practice squad.

    The Vikings cut guard Pat Elflein on Friday, with coach Mike Zimmer saying, “we just felt like we had some better options.” Elflein, the former third-round pick, was unable to practice consistently in his attempted return from injured reserve this season.

    Samia, the 2019 fourth-round pick, struggled through four starts at right guard for Elflein, who underwent thumb surgery in September, and was replaced by rookie Ezra Cleveland.

    But they won't. Just wondering how shorthanded they might be. Would his fellow O-linemen be close contacts?

    Maybe everyone should have just properly locked down in March so we didnít have to deal with this. Too busy rebelling and now we are going to deal with this for at least a year if not longer.

    Wrong. Canada did a full 2 month lockdown in April and cases skyrocketing again.

    Lockdowns do not work.

    You need to know if they have an offensive line to work behind. Imagine if their entire starting O-line is sidelined. Couns + Cook can't do anything without protection and running lanes. If it's just Samia, that's probably fine, but if it goes beyond that then there are issues.

    LOL

    Follow the Vikes much?

    They literally have 0 offensive line

    Their O Line is $7 5mm below any other starting O Line in the NFL

    it's a non factor....they just cut Eilflein it's that fukking ridiculous

    Zone blocking scheme is only savior- smaller dudes moving into a zone

    They donít work because people donít obey them. We live in a society where we would rather bitch about something longer than it actually takes to do it.

    Not true at all. At least here people weren't leaving their houses for months besides to go on a walk or get groceries.

    We did a strict lockdown and it worked for a bit. But yet here we are again with our leaders wanting to so it again? Not a chance.

    You contribute nothing. Your miserable attitude kills the people around you. Itís sad you hate so much. At one point you had 50 out of 60 straight posts where you just swore at someone, called them a piece of shit or were just nasty. This is what you use SBR for? A place for you to be a keyboard dick because you live a miserable life and people around you disappear due to your overall personality.

    Its like this everywhere including Europe. We have bills and jobs, we can't really stay home. But peolpe who bitch the most are extraverted types who rather die of virus than stop going to a pub on weekend.
