Andrew Booth Injury

Minnesota Vikings rookie cornerback Andrew Booth Jr. suffered a non-contact leg injury in the second quarter of Saturday night’s preseason loss to the San Francisco 49ers and required the aid of two trainers to leave the field. Injuries that don’t happen through contact are nevertheless alarming since they often force a player to lose a lot of time.

Thank goodness, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that the Vikings appear to have avoided a major disaster with the Booth injury.

Goessling reports that head coach Kevin O’Connell stated the squad was hoping Booth will return this week despite aggravating an ankle condition he had been battling with. That’s a huge change from how things appeared yesterday night as Booth was being carted off the field at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Booth has spent much of the offseason nursing an injury; he had sports hernia surgery and missed much of the offseason training. However, he had been 100% for the whole preseason and was set to play a significant number of snaps last night until getting hurt.

Besides that one guy, I don’t think the Vikings suffered any other major injuries last night. It seems like they narrowly avoided a significant setback with their young cornerback, but if there are any developments in that regard, we will let you know as soon as possible.

“It was much the same ankle he’s dealt with before,” O’Connell explained. From the point of view of, you know, just aggravating an injury that we kind of know about already, it sounds like a good thing. That’s something he’s been working on all through camp.

What it will depend on how that thing develops over the next few days. Obviously, as we continue to prepare, we’re still hoping to get him some work this week. Let’s examine where he is at right now. A far cry from 100%, but hopefully nothing too catastrophic for the Clemson second-round pick.
