    OMG, that sucks.

    While Johnson seemed to be a false start on legs, Rosenthal just sucks.

    Oh well, all I can do is wish him the best and hope he improves...

    Injury report

    Two of the Vikings' four players with sprained ankles should be ready to play on Sunday. Tight end Jermaine Wiggins (left) and safety Corey Chavous (right) participated in all of practice Friday and will start Sunday. If Chavous needs to take off a few plays, he would be replaced by Will Hunter.

    Right tackle Marcus Johnson (right) will not play, and it appears center Melvin Fowler (left) will be available only in an emergency. The Vikings will have seven linemen in uniform, with Fowler and Chris Liwienski serving as the only backups.

    "Going into a game with seven linemen first and foremost is a tenuous situation," coach Mike Tice said. "Many teams do it, and we've done it here for years. But when this seven linemen are really 6¼ linemen, that makes it even worse."

    Different looks

    Although he's unlikely to play, veteran center Cory Withrow has been putting in overtime this week preparing to face a Baltimore defense that presents multiple looks.

    "They have to be the smartest team in the NFL," said Withrow, who has made five starts this season but none since Nov. 21. "They've got players that are playing, six, seven different positions, it seems like."

    Withrow, who makes the line calls and must know what type of defense he is looking at, came in on his day off Tuesday to meet with coaches and study additional film of the Ravens. Although Baltimore says it runs a 3-4 defense, Withrow also expects to see plenty of 4-3 looks. "We have to worry more about ourselves than them because they do so much," he said.

    If Fowler is slated only as an emergency backup & Withrow unlikely to play, does that mean Goldberg is our starting center?

    "Part of the Culpepper decision already has been made. Owner Zygi Wilf said this week he will pay the quarterback's $6 million roster bonus in March, a commitment that makes clear Culpepper will regain his starting job whenever he finishes rehabilitating his surgically repaired knee."
