Vikings quarterback Jaren Hall leaves first start with concussion

The worst part is Jaren Hall was kind of cooking.

After struggling to find a rhythm on his first drive, the rookie quarterback had the Vikings in position to score a touchdown on his second drive.

He completed a quick pass to tight end Johnny Mundt for a gain of 18 yards, then a deep pass to running back Alexander Mattison for a gain of 47 yards.

That put the Vikings in the low red zone where Hall tried to scramble for a touchdown. He got hit hard near the goal line, slammed the back of his head into the turf, and had to be helped off the field.

After briefly getting checked out in the medical tent, Hall was quickly ruled out with a concussion. He finished the game 5 for 6 for 78 yards through the air to go along with 11 yards on the ground.

In place of Hall, the Vikings turned to Josh Dobbs, the journey quarterback they acquired at the trade deadline this past week.
