  • Vikings' Lewis Cine: Unable to practice

    Cine (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Kevin Seifert of reports.

    Cine was mistakingly left off the team's injury report, but it appears the second-year safety is working through a hamstring injury. The Georgia product has strictly worked on special teams so far this season, so any potential absence Sunday against the Panthers wouldn't impact their core secondary pieces.

  • Vikings' Lewis Cine: Limited to special teams

    Cine played 12 snaps on special teams in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay and did not have a tackle.

    Cine played in his first regular-season game after suffering a season-ending compound fracture in his left leg during Week 4 last season. It was thought Cine would challenge for playing time or even a starting safety role this preseason when back to full strength, but he didn't impress enough in the exhibition slate. He may be limited to special teams unless injuries strike the secondary.

  • Vikings' Lewis Cine: Warming up Saturday

    Cine (undisclosed) is warming up and appears prepared to play in Saturday's preseason finale versus the Cardinals, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Cine suffered a minor, low-grade, soft-tissue injury earlier in the week at practice, but he appears to be recovered from the issue. The 26-year-old is attempting to lock up a spot on the Vikings' final 53-man roster as a backup to Camryn Bynum at free safety.

  • Vikings' Lewis Cine: Dealing with minor injury

    Cine (undisclosed) is recovering from a low-grade, soft-tissue injury, per coach Kevin O'Connell, Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune reports.

    O'Connell doesn't expect a long-term absence for Cine. Once healthy, Cine will try to finally stay that way for an extended period at the NFL level, as the 2022 first-round pick was limited to three appearances as a rookie by a broken leg.

  • Vikings' Lewis Cine: Plays first game since broken leg

    Cine had three total tackles and played 40 snaps on defense in Thursday's preseason loss at Seattle.

    Cine showed he's fully healthy after last year's broken leg by making an impressive tackle on the defense's first play of the game. The 2022 first-round draft pick missed all but three games last year due to a broken leg. He's currently third or fourth on the safety depth chart, but he could see action in three-safety sets and could contend for a starting job later in the season.

  • Vikings' Lewis Cine: Full participant at OTAs

    Cine (leg) has been a full participant at the Vikings' OTAs this week, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    Cine suffered a season-ending compound fracture of his left leg last October, but the 23-year-old appears healthy heading into the 2023 campaign. The free safety was selected in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft and went without a tackle while logging 36 total snaps last season, 34 of them on special teams. Cine will now compete with Camryn Bynum for a starting role in the Vikings' secondary ahead of his sophomore year in the NFL.

  • Vikings' Lewis Cine: Recovering well

    Cine is progressing well as he recovers from a fractured leg, Lindsey Young of the Vikings' official site reports.

    Cine fractured his leg during the team's Week 4 game against the Saints, which sidelined him for the rest of the year. The 2022 first-round pick played just two defensive snaps and did not record a tackle during his rookie campaign. Cine has begun running at full speed and will aim to be ready for the start of the season.

  • Vikings' Lewis Cine: On track for return

    Head coach Kevin O'Connell said Thursday that Cine (leg) is doing very well in his recovery, and could participate in phase 3 of OTAs, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Cine suffered a fractured leg Week 4 against the Saints, which required surgery and sidelined the rookie for the remainder of the season. However, he appears to be on track to be a full participant when training camp comes, if not during OTAs.

  • Vikings' Lewis Cine: Traveling back to Minnesota

    Cine (leg) will travel from London to Minnesota in a "medical plane," Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Cine suffered a compound fracture in his leg Sunday against the Saints and had surgery in London to repair the issue. He's remained overseas since but will return to Minnesota accompanied by medical personnel associated with the team. Cine is unlikely to return to the field in 2022, but the surgery was deemed a success.

  • Vikings' Lewis Cine: Placed on IR

    The Vikings placed Cine (leg) on injured reserve Tuesday, Craig Peters of the team's official site reports.

    Cine suffered a compound fracture in his left leg during Sunday's 28-25 win over the Saints, and he's since undergone successful surgery Tuesday. Although the 22-year-old safety is eligible to return later in the year after being placed on IR, the procedure Cine underwent was presumably season-ending, meaning he'll likely target a full recovery for the 2023 season. The 199-pounder played two defensive and 34 special teams snaps across three games.

  • Vikings' Lewis Cine: Has surgery

    Cine underwent successful surgery Tuesday to repair the compound fracture in his left leg, which he suffered in Sunday's win over the Saints.

    Cine's surgery was performed in London, where he'll remain until he's cleared to return home to Minnesota. Although a return is at least weeks, if not months away, it's good news for Cine that everything is going smoothly thus far in his recovery.
