    Re: Jared Allen injures ankle in practice and other updates

    Quarterback Sage Rosenfels (ankle), wide receiver Bernard Berrian (hamstring) and tight end Garrett Mills (shoulder) and Jim Kleinsasser (unknown) also did not practice. Berrian, Mills and Rosenfels appeared on the film at the beginning of practice and then returned inside to receive treatment.
    Wide receiver Percy Harvin, the Vikings’ first-round pick, was not able to play in the team’s preseason opener last Friday at Indianapolis because of a shoulder injury suffered two days earlier in the final practice of training camp in Mankato. So will Harvin be able to make his debut this Friday as the Vikings play host to Kansas City at the Metrodome?

    “That’s coach’s decision,” he said. “I feel I’m ready to go but again that’s the coach’s decision. So whenever he says I’m ready, I’ll be ready to go.”

    Harvin called the decision to sit him out a precautionary move and admitted he did want to play. Instead, he had to stand on the sideline. ”It was really tough to miss that one to finally get out there and play in front of the fans,” he said. “I wasn’t able to do it so I’ll get ready for next week.”


    Hopefully none of them are too serious.
    Don't bother reading the rest of the article, it's all Favre BS.

    If they are going to have injuries let them be minor and let them heal fast.
    So far that seems to be the case, KNOCK ON WOOD.

    Ankles generally heal pretty quickly. And I won't be concerned in the slightest if Jared misses the rest of the preseason. Hopefully this is one of those general ankle injuries.

    As long as it doesn't say "high ankle sprain".... then they take forever to heal.


    Trust me, I'm a doctor.

    Ankles can be nagging injuries, let him get his rest, it's only the preseason.

    Getting some guys nicked up. Three more pre-season games left gives us time to get other players hurt, time to heal, and evaluate the talent to set our roster. Hopefully Jared can shake this off quick, but Childress has to be smart and substitute young guys and rest injured vets, like Berrian who's hamstring injury could linger.

    My thought exactly.
    I'm not too worried about this.

    But, then again, that could be due to the fact that I don't want to hear that it's a serious injury, so I just keep telling myself it's nothing serious.
    lol

    Allen played through a separated shoulder and tweaked knee, I'm sure he'll be fine.
