Frazier Acknowledges Mistake On Challenge
Viking head coach Leslie Frazier acknowledged Monday that he should have challenged the 3rd and goal play involving Percy Harvin Sunday against Atlanta. Harvin was ruled down at the 1-yard line but he thought he had scored. On the 4th and goal play Toby Gerhart was stuffed at the 1 and Minnesota failed to score. Frazier says they are looking into how they handle challenges in the future.
Frazier updated the injuries as well. Long snapper Cullen Loeffler is out 2-6 weeks with a back injury, safety Tyrell Johnson has a significant hamstring injury and receiver Michael Jenkins could miss some time with a knee injury. Running back Adrian Peterson is improving from his high ankle sprain according to Frazier but it’s unclear whether Peterson will be able to play this Sunday against Denver.
