    Why is it that it seems like all the injuries are for the entire season?

    That's a bad break for the Vikes but every team has serious injuries every season so hopefully we can overcome this one

    [size=13pt]James will miss rest of year[/size]

    The 2005 first-round pick tore a knee ligament, and the Vikings did not reveal how they plan to proceed without him.

    For the second consecutive season, the Vikings have lost a starting defensive end because of a knee injury.
    A magnetic resonance imaging exam showed right end Erasmus James tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Sunday in the fourth quarter of the Vikings' 16-13 overtime victory over Carolina, coach Brad Childress said Monday. James had the MRI on Monday morning.

    Childress said James is "making plans right now on where and when [the surgery] will occur." James, who likely will be placed on injured reserve this week, is expected to do a few weeks of rehab work before having the procedure.

    Childress did not say how he planned to replace James. His options include moving Darrion Scott or rookie Ray Edwards into a starting role. Scott started 15 games at end last season, after Kenechi Udeze hurt his knee in the third game and had season-ending surgery in October.

    The Vikings also could look at free agents. Among those available is Michael Haynes, Chicago's first-round pick in 2003. He was let go by New Orleans last week after a brief stint with the team. His agent, Brian Mackler, said Monday that the Vikings had not called about his client.

    "We've got a few different ways that we're considering going," Childress said. "We're really trying to put [Sunday's] game behind us with the players, the coaches, and then move on here to the Bears. But some of those decisions will get made here in the next 48 hours or so."

    James, the 18th overall pick in the 2005 draft out of Wisconsin, reported late to training camp last year but started the final nine games and finished with four sacks, 16 quarterback hurries and 34 tackles. He had four quarterback hurries and four tackles this season before being injured on a 1-yard run by Carolina's DeShaun Foster.

    "I don't know if someone got blocked into me or someone came down and chopped me," James said Sunday.

    Said Childress: "I just think he was playing at a high level. It was the first training camp that he has been through extensively. You could see him coming and getting better and better every day, both playing the run and playing the pass. He's put himself in a position, with the effort and the hard work in the offseason, and that's the disappointing part of this game is those injuries."

    James is the third Vikings player to be lost this season because of a knee injury. Linebacker Chad Greenway (torn ACL in left knee) and safety Tank Williams (fractured left kneecap) were both placed on IR last month. Both were operated on by noted surgeon James Andrews.
