It’s all fun and games until someone loses a finger

If you were watching the Minnesota Vikings’ 38-31 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday Night Football , you probably noticed that there were a couple of times where tight end David Morgan had to serve as the Vikings’ long snapper in place of Kevin McDermott. We’ve seen Morgan handle those duties before, as he did so last season in Green Bay when McDermott suffered what would up being a season-ending injury.As it turns out, McDermott had to sit out for a while because he lost the tip of one of his fingers.Let me repeat that. . .dude had the tip of one of his fingers ripped off. And it wasn’t enough to keep him out for the whole game!I’m not totally sure whose face mask McDermott got his finger caught in. But it would appear that it occurred on Dan Bailey’s 37-yard field goal in the second quarter that made it a 10-7 Vikings lead. McDermott was the long snapper for that play, but when the Vikings scored a touchdown on their next possession to make it 17-14, Morgan was snapping to Matt Wile, and Morgan snapped to Wile so that he could punt the ball away on the Vikings’ next series.After that, however Womens Laquon Treadwell Jersey , McDermott was back out there again, and handled the snapping duties for the rest of the game.Tony Bennett may have left his heart in San Francisco, but on Thursday night Kevin McDermott left part of his finger in Southern California.Vikings at Rams: Inactive Lists In just under an hour, the Vikings and Rams will face off in a Thursday Night Football matchup that could go along way in determining playoff seeding.The list of inactives contains a few names that could at least raise an eyebrow.Let’s begin with the Los Angeles Rams.Mark Barron, LBDominque Easley, LBSebastian Joseph-Day, DTJohn Kelly , RBJoJo Natson, WRTanzel Smart, DTGreg Zuerlein, KNot too many surprising names, although there were some rumblings ealier in the week that Barron could be a go for the game.One name that isn’t on the list is Cornerback Marcus Peters, who has been hobbled with a calf injury.If he plays, that’s a huge help for the Rams’ secondary.The Minnesota Vikings have a couple of surprises on or off the list - depending on your perspective.Everson Griffen Youth Mike Hughes Jersey , DEAnthony Harris, DBJalyn holmes, DTTom Johnson, DTMarcus Sherels, DBKyle Sloter, QBBryan Witzman, OGTo see Tom Johnson’s name on the list Womens Danielle Hunter Jersey , along with Jalyn Holmes is a huge surprise, considering that Jaleel Johnson and Tashawn Bower are the only two backup defensive linemen listed on the depth chart.With Everson Griffen’s situation - and considering the Rams’ offensive line has been playing at a high level, depth at that position seems like it should be at a premium.The open thread is up.Enjoy the game, and SKOL Vikes!
