  • Vikings' Andrew Booth: Done for season

    Booth (knee) will not return this season, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Booth had surgery Monday to repair his knee, and initially it was believed there was a chance he could return in January. However, it appears after the procedure was completed it was determined that would not be possible. The second-round rookie selection will now turn his focus to being ready for the 2023 campaign. Kris Boyd will be a candidate to see increased opportunity with Booth sidelined.

  • Vikings' Andrew Booth: Return this season uncertain

    Coach Kevin O'Connell said Monday that Booth (knee) will "more than likely" head to injured reserve after having undergone knee surgery, Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports. O'Connell said Booth's injury is "either going to be something that potentially ends his season" or a situation that could see him return "at some point in January." The rookie second-round pick began earning a role on defense starting Week 10, and he notched 12 total tackles in his last two games played. Starting with Sunday's game against the Jets, and as long as Booth remains out, Kris Boyd will likely handle an increased defensive role.
