Minnesota Vikings first-round draft pick Sharrif Floyd was scheduled to have an MRI on his left knee Sunday, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
However, Vikings coach today Leslie Frazier said he does not believe there is a long-term injury for the rookie defensive tackle.
"We're not overly concerned," Frazier said. "From what I've been told, he's just sore. So we just want to err on the side of caution. He fell on the knee. He's pretty sore this morning. The fact that he's sorer than he was yesterday makes us decide to make sure there's nothing else going on."
Minnesota fell to the Houston Texans 27-13 in Friday's preseason opener. Floyd fell awkwardly while being blocked in the first half and left the game. He had a pass deflection and a tackle for loss.
Overall, Frazier said the team is relatively healthy. Cornerback Jacob Lacey will have arthroscopic knee surgery this week and is expected to miss two to four weeks. He is a longshot to make the roster.
