Tennessee Titans quarterback #Marcus Mariota suffered a hamstring injury in the first half of their 57-14 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday.
Minnesota's star rookie running back went down holding his knee after trying to make a cut 14-7 loss to Detroit.
While Keenum and the rest of the Vikings offense struggled on Sunday - committing three turnovers and blowing multiple opportunities late in the fourth quarter at potential game-tying drives - there is no word on when starting quarterback Sam Bradford might be back in the fold.
Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook had one of the highest upsides of any offensive weapon picked in the most recent National Football League draft.
"Unfortunately", Zimmer lamented, "I'm getting used to it".
Inside linebacker Deone Bucannon (ankle) will play for the first time this season and wide receiver John Brown (quadriceps) also is expected back.
Disaster has struck the Minnesota Vikings.
Sure, it is only October.
Murray was far from impressive after taking over for Cook in Week 4. He went 16-for-30 with 219 yards, no touchdowns or interceptions.
The downfield shots he converted against the Bucs just weren't there this week.
Lions S Miles Killebrew, on the defense's 11 takeaways this season: "I wouldn't say we are surprised, because that implies that we weren't expecting them to happen". Cook ground out his typical tough yards up the middle until finding the end zone for the Vikings' first score-the second touchdown of his career.
"I have all the confidence in myself, and I believe the coaches have the confidence in me", Murray said, "that I could catch the ball, run the ball, block and let the offense do all the things we've been doing".
But the Vikings were not doomed.
Zettel's impact has been a huge part of the team's 3-1 start. It was lifeless game that had the caffeine flowing heavier in the seats than the booze. Not only did they force three turnovers, but they held the Vikings to just seven points (with the help of a Kai Forbath missed field goal).
Xavier Rhodes, Anthony Barr and Trae Waynes all broke up passes that could've realistically been intercepted, with the attempt by Waynes coming the play before Abdullah scored.
"They're really helping us win games", quarterback Matthew Stafford said.
The Vikings (2-2) lost more than just possession.
