ACL stops James come back
Erasmus James has his season cut short after tearing the same ACL he torn last season. He worked his way back into the starting lineup. Then this had to happen. All the hard work and rehab for what. He is back on the IR 14 months after the first one. So now James will have the ACL "repaired" once again. He is done for the rest of the season a good chuck of next season as well.This could not have come at a worse time.
It was the second significant blow to the Vikings defensive line this week. Ray Edwards, who started the first 11 games before giving way to James last week, was suspended Wednesday for violating the NFL's policy on steroids.
So now the Vikes are down the 1st 2 DE on the depth chart. So now the Vikes turn to rookie Brian Robison and second-year pro Jayme Mitchell to fill in for James.
Without James I think that Vikes will do a good job containing San Fran.
