EJ Henderson- Out For Season.

OUCH-

Henderson placed on injured reserve

Buzz Up PrintNEW ORLEANS (AP)—Minnesota Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson will miss the rest of the season after being placed on injured reserve because of dislocated toes on his left foot.

Team officials confirmed the move Monday before the Vikings’ game against the New Orleans Saints. They said Henderson traveled to Baltimore, where Dr. Mark Myerson of the Institute for Foot & Ankle Reconstruction at Mercy Medical Center performed successful surgery.

“Our first and foremost concern is E.J.’s long-term health and making sure that his foot is able to properly heal without compromising the results with an earlier return or without the surgery,” Vikings head coach Brad Childress said. “He will focus on his rehabilitation to ensure that is the case. Knowing the leader that E.J. is on and off the field, he will remain an active member of this team throughout the year and look to contribute any way he can.”

Henderson was injured during the second quarter of the Vikings’ 30-17 loss at Tennessee on Sept. 28. He returned to the game, but the severity of the injury became more apparent during the past week.

Henderson was wearing a boot meant to minimize movement in his foot at the Vikings training headquarters during the week and was expected to miss Monday night’s game in New Orleans, but had hoped to play again this season.

Now in his sixth season out of Maryland, Henderson started three of the first four games and was credited with 27 tackles, including a sack.

That really stinks for Vikings fans. I thought this was the year he would make the Pro Bowl. Herron will have to step up.

If he was Ronnie Lott, he would just have the doctors cut his toes off and be back next weekend wink

It hurts even more that his two primary back-ups are also out for the season (Farwell and Vinny). No wonder we can't play special teams anymore. Ouch!!

Sounds like Dontarrius Thomas might be coming back. 49ers cut him since he wasn't much of a special teams player. Maybe a position battle between him and Herron?

This is a horrible blow to us. He was just starting to really understand this defense, and was becoming a teror on that side of the ball. I'm condfident the rest of this unit will step up in his absence.

    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
    • And aren't a big fan of eating it?   I'm OK with marinating and grilling the breasts but the rest of the family aren't big fans.  And I can say I prefer duck too.   So I tried smoking the breasts - and loved it!  And now I want more!   I took the simple route since it was my first try.  I picked up some High Mountain game bird and poultry brine and let em brine for two days chilled.   I put them on my smoker grill with the coals in the side fire box.  4 handfuls of wet mesquite chips during the 2.5 hour smoke at about 250 degrees.  I brushed with olive oil and teriyaki marinade to finish.  Pink and tender throughout, not jerked dry and tough.  Phenomenal.     I ate the last one yesterday on the deer stand.  After pulling the tenderloin off for the chefs treat, I just slice it thin against the grain.     Give it a try if you feel like the only things to do with geese are to grind em up.
    • So what do you propose we cut in order to offset that grand per job subsidy? Please be specific.   Do you propose doing the same for competing companies or do you like to play favorites?
