    Burleson Out Another Week

    not sure if this has been posted anywhere yet I couldnt see it anywhere though

    The Vikings will be without their No. 1 wide receiver for a second straight game when they visit the Falcons this week. Head coach Mike Tice confirmed during his press conference on Monday that Nate Burleson will not play because of his injured knee. Burleson suffered a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during their week two game against the Bengals

    Hopefully TT and Williamson continue to step it up like they did last week!

    We'll be ok most likely. Sprained knees are no joke, i wouldn't be suprised if he misses more games then just next week. We got three WR and couple TE who are producing right now so i think we are ok.

    Re: Burleson Out Another Week

    yah i'd rather burleson come back at full speed when he will actually be able to help the team than come back too quickly and not make an impact. we're still pretty solid at WRs with M.Robinson, T. Taylor, T. Williamson and maybe ol' stone hands (K.Robinson) himself can make an appearance in this game.

    Anybody hear how Sharper, L. Johnstone and B. Williams are doing?

    Thanks Josdin

    we did fine without him this week, but the falcons are a much better team. he would help us, but not at 60%; we need him at 100% so the extra time off will help.
    We're bringing purple back.

    I've heard he'll be back for the Chicago game. Which would be in 3 weeks after our bye.

    Brian Williams, has a sprained knee will not play against Atlanta. Hopefully he is back after the bye week.

    Sharper said his knee was not as far along as he was hoping on Monday, and did not know if he would be ready to go for Atlanta. The Vikes think otherwise and have him listed as probable for the Atlanta game.

    My take, he will not play and hope he is back after the break.


    Johnstone had a MRI done on his shoulder, the last I have heard they had not commented on what was discovered.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Re: Burleson Out Another Week

    Thats fine in my book. Then he'll have the bye week...so he'll have an extra week. We did fine without em...let him get 100% no rush.

    Knee injurys are so rough. I understand Burleson being out for that long I think he might be back after the bye week.

    I guess it's better to rest him now, than to rush him back and get him hurt again.
