  • Vikings' Christian Darrisaw: Expected to return Week 15

    Vikings coach Kevin O'Connell said Darrisaw (concussion) is expected to suit up Saturday versus the Colts, Carmen Vitali of Fox Sports reports.

    Darrisaw sustained his second concussion of the season Week 11 versus Dallas, and he was ruled inactive for precautionary reasons ahead of Sunday's loss to Detroit even though he'd already cleared concussion protocols. The second-year left tackle return comes at a crucial time for Minnesota, as backup Blake Brandel sustained a torn MCL vesus the Lions, according to O'Connell. Darrissaw's return should help shore up a Vikings offensive line that ranks 24th in the NFL with 34 sacks given up this season.

  • Vikings' Christian Darrisaw: Sitting out Sunday

  • Vikings' Christian Darrisaw: On track to sit out Week 14

    Darrisaw (concussion), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, isn't expected to play, Jordan Schultz of TheScore.com reports.

    According to Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell confirmed Friday that Darrisaw cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol, but Minnesota apparently isn't yet comfortable having the 2021 first-round pick make his return to the field. Assuming Darrisaw winds up on the inactive list ahead of the 1 p.m. ET kickoff, the Vikings are expected to turn to Blake Brandel to step in as their starting left tackle.

  • Vikings' Christian Darrisaw: Clears protocol, questionable

    Darrisaw (concussion) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Ben Goessling of the Minnesota Star Tribune reports.

    Darrisaw has cleared the concussion protocol and practiced in full Friday. That's a positive sign for his availability Sunday, though the Vikings may opt to take a cautious approach. If Darrisaw is unable to suit up, Blake Brandel will likely start at left tackle.

  • Vikings' Christian Darrisaw: Logs limited activity

    Darrisaw (concussion) was limited in Wednesday's practice despite being absent during the portion open to reporters, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com reports.

    Wednesday's session accounted for Darrisaw's first on-field activity since he sustained a concussion back in Week 11 against Dallas. The 315-pounder will have two more chances to ramp up to full practice participation prior to this weekend's matchup versus Detroit.

  • Vikings' Christian Darrisaw: Ruled out for Week 13

    Darrisaw (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Darrisaw will miss his second consecutive game with a concussion. He was held out of practice all week, so it's unclear when he may be to return to the field. In Darrisaw's absence, Blake Brandel will serve as Minnesota's starting left tackle.

  • Vikings' Christian Darrisaw: Sits out practice Wednesday

    Vikings coach Kevin O'Connell said Wednesday that Darrisaw is still in concussion protocol and there is currently no timeline for his return this season, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Darrisaw was forced out with a concussion during Minnesota's Week 11 loss to the Cowboys and was unable to clear protocols ahead of the Thanksgiving Day versus New England. The 23-year-old then did not participate during the first practice of Week 13 on Wednesday, so it appears he could be set to miss additional time moving forward. With Darrisaw's status up in the air, Blake Brandel should continue to operate as the Vikings' starting left tackle for the foreseeable future.
