Dalvin Tomlinson ruled out for rest of game with a calf injury

The Minnesota Vikings have had excellent injury luck all season but they hit every team at some point during the season. Defensive end Dalvin Tomlinson injured his calf in the third quarter and was ruled out by the Vikings.

With Tomlinson out, expect defensive end James Lynch to get more playing time with Ross Blacklock getting more snaps across all three downs and nose tackle Khyiris Tonga also rotating in more.

The Vikings are slowly starting to get hit with the injury bug and it started with Adam Thielen and Za’Darius Smith in the first half. Both players looked to have minor knee injuries with Thielen landing hard on it and Smith knocking knees with a teammate.

We will expect an update of some sort during Kevin O’Connell’s press conference postgame or Monday afternoon.
