After losing the first two games of the season for the first time in his seven years as head coach of the Minnesota Vikings, Mike Zimmer acknowledged last week some surprise by the growing pains taking place on the side of the ball that’s long been his expertise. I probably misjudged the defense a little bit, because we had so many new guys,” Zimmer said, alluding to the lack of offseason practices due to the virus outbreak.
Wentz is going through the worst stretch of his five-year career and has already tossed six interceptions, one fewer than he had in each of the past three seasons. Already missing veteran receiver Alshon Jeffery and rookie first-round pick Jalen Reagor, Wentz lost DeSean Jackson in the first half and tight end Dallas Goedert went down in the first quarter.
On Monday, the Minnesota Vikings once again did some shuffling of the defensive backs on their practice squad. The team has announced that they have signed safety Luther Kirk. To make room for him on the practice squad, they have waived Nate Meadors.
