    Re: I think That we are going to miss Kluwe

    Just finished reading, Kluwe said he will be ready for the Rams game, but at the same time, Tice said they may bring in Bennet for the game..

    I thought Edinger did a fine job for someone who was put into the fire...

    He is for sure a clutch player, and the kick to the 7 yard line was awesome for us....

    The Vikings' rookie punter was carted off the field after a roughing-the -kicker penalty left him with a sprained ankle.

    [size=18px]Not so special day for Kluwe[/size]

    BY DON SEEHOLZER
    Pioneer Press


    DETROIT — Sunday was a forgettable game for the Vikings' special teams and especially punter Chris Kluwe, who by the end of the day didn't have a leg to stand on.

    Kluwe jammed his right knee during the second quarter of the Vikings' 21-16 win over Detroit, and he had to be carted off the field with three seconds left in the third period after being roughed by Lions safety Vernon Fox.

    "Personally, I think it was a cheap shot," said Kluwe, who suffered a sprained left ankle on the play. "First off, he didn't even dive across. He dove straight at me, so what can I do? I'm in a vulnerable position. If a guy's going to do that, there's nothing I can do about it. I just thought it kind of (stunk)."

    Kluwe didn't get any sympathy from Fox or from coach Mike Tice, who said the punter was making so much noise, "He could have had a concert out there."

    Tice said the Vikings always could bring back punter Darren Bennett if Kluwe has to miss some time, but initial X-rays on the ankle were negative, and the rookie showed no damage that he would be able to punt this week against St. Louis.

    "I was kind of worried about it because I felt it pop. So I didn't know if it was sprained or broken," he said. "The good thing is, since it's my plant leg, all I've got to do is walk straight forward on it. If they can just tape it up real well, hopefully that should cover it."

    With Kluwe out, kicker Paul Edinger pulled double duty during the final quarter, averaging 37.5 yards on two punts, including one 40-yard pooch kick that he rolled out of bounds at the Lions' 7-yard line.

    Those were the first NFL punts from punt formation for Edinger, who had a 34-yard punt on a fake field goal in a 2001 game against Cleveland for Chicago. He was Michigan State's regular punter for his first two college seasons.

    Edinger joked that his punts were so bad that Lions return man Eddie Drummond couldn't catch them, and he added Kluwe could have the punting job back any time.

    "Oh, yeah. It's all his," Edinger said. "He's a lot better at it."

    Edinger also gave credit to long snapper Cullen Loeffler, who hit him in the stomach with both snaps after sailing one over Kluwe's head in the second quarter.

    Kluwe ran the ball down and managed to get off a 38-yard punt on the run, but he came down awkwardly on his right knee on the play and had to go right back on the field after the Vikings were called for being illegally downfield.

    Kluwe said he kicked the ground on his next punt, which traveled just 37 yards and was returned 38 to the Minnesota 18 by Drummond, setting up a Jason Hanson field goal that cut the Vikings' lead to 14-6 at the half.

    That was one of two big returns on the day for Drummond, whose 34-yard return of the opening kickoff set up another Hanson field goal and left Vikings special teams coordinator Rusty Tillman visibly upset.

    "I felt like we got whipped today on special teams," Tillman said. "Today, we got whipped, period. … Every time we punted the ball, it seemed like it was coming back on us. Not good."
