Vikings place a quarterback on injured reserve
The Minnesota Vikings have placed a quarterback on injured reserve, effectively ending his season.
No, not that quarterback.
Tarvaris Jackson, who has a serious case of turf toe, has been moved to IR, ending his season with the Vikings and likely his career there, according to Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The move was made so Minnesota could make room for quarterback Patrick Ramsey, who was signed Wednesday.
The Vikings are holding out hope that quarterback, Brett Favre, can start Monday night against the Chicago Bears. With the sprained SC joint in his right shoulder, that is highly unlikely. That means rookie Joe Webb, drafted to play wide receiver for the Vikings, will likely start. Two weeks ago, Webb practiced at wide receiver.
Of course, the Vikings could turn to Ramsey, but his first practice with the team is today. Yes, it’s a mess.
