And The Hits Just Keep On Coming For The Vikings – LT Matt Kalil to IR

Matt Kalil placed on Season Ending IR

Mike Zimmer announced that Matt Kalil, who has been dealing with a hip issue for a few weeks was placed on season ending IR on Tuesday.

Add Kalil to injuries to QB Teddy Bridgewater and Adrian Peterson and three more important positions on the team could not have been lost for the season.

Zimmer did not announce who will start at LT, but presumably TJ Clemmings will get the start. Clemmings had a poor rookie season at RT and will be thrown into the fray once again.

Vikings also announced the signing of RB Ronnie Hillman who formerly played for the Denver Broncos. The 5’10” 195 RB is expected to be a backup. Rick Spielman loves those small backs.
