When the Minnesota Vikings started Training Camp a month ago. . .yeah Infant Dru Samia Jersey , its been a whole month already. . .they only had one player that wasnt readily available to practice with the rest of his teammates. That was starting center Pat Elflein, who was recovering from a shoulder issue and the fractured ankle that he suffered in the NFC Championship Game. The prevailing wisdom was that, while Elflein wasnt ready for action yet, hed been good to go by the time the regular season rolled around.As it stands now, however, in the words of noted American philosopher Sterling Archer, somebody had better call Kenny Loggins, because were in the danger zone.Elflein has not played in any of the Vikings first three preseason games, as he is still on the Physically Unable to Perform List. As a starter, he likely wouldnt see any action in the fourth preseason game, and we are exactly one week away from when the Vikings (and the 31 other NFL teams that dont matter as much) need to reduce their rosters from 90 players down to 53. Remember, there isnt an interim cut to 75 anymore. . .its just all one big push.If Elflein is still on the Physically Unable to Perform List at 3:00 PM Central Time on Saturday, 1 September, he will be obligated to miss the first six games of the regular season, per NFL rules. He wouldnt count against the teams 53-man roster Dru Samia Jersey nfl draft , but he would not be able to step on the field until Week 7 at the earliest.It would be disappointing to see Elflein have to miss the first six weeks of the season. This isnt a 2010 Sidney Rice situation where he literally waited until the start of camp to have surgery and was out until November as a result. Elflein had both of his surgeries early enough in the offseason, from all reports, where you would have thought his rehab would be finished by now and hed be ready for game action. For whatever reason, unfortunately, that is not the case.There hasnt been any real intel out of Eagan that would give any indication one way or the other about Elfleins status, and I wouldnt expect there to be any until the announcement comes that hes coming off the PUP List. If that changes, however, well definitely have it here for you straight away. GREEN BAY, Wis. Wide right, times two.Daniel Carlson missed two field goals in overtime, including one from 35 yards as time expired, and the Minnesota Vikings had to settle for a 29-29 tie with the Green Bay Packers after rallying from a late 13-point deficit on Sunday.More Vikings coverageVikings Kearse faces gun, drunken driving charges after arrestVikings Kearse apologizes, returns to work after weekend arrestPhotos of the Week: 10/20/19 10/26/19Vikings surge into second half thanks to Cousins, CookVikings Snap Counts: Penalties spoil Mattisons big dayThe rookies final attempt went to the right of the uprights Replica Dru Samia Jersey , just like his kick from 49 earlier in overtime. Carlson also missed from 48 in the second quarter.Packers kicker Mason Crosby matched a career high with five field goals, but his potential game-winner from 52 went wide left as time expired in regulation.Its disappointing when youve got an opportunity to win the football game there at the end and you come up with a tie. Its better than a loss, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said.It was the second straight week with a tie in the NFL after the Steelers and Browns played to a draw in their opener.The result at Lambeau Field overshadowed memorable performances from both quarterbacks.Green Bay star Aaron Rodgers played with a brace on his injured left knee and threw for 281 yards and a 9-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams .But a mishandled handoff with 5:17 left in overtime cost the Packers a chance at another long field-goal attempt. Rodgers recovered the fumble on second-and-1 at the 37, and he was sacked on third down to push Green Bay back to the 47.Close to an L. Doesnt feel great, Rodgers said about the tie.Minnesotas Kirk Cousins threw for 425 yards and four touchdowns, including three in the fourth quarter. He also threw an interception to Ha Ha Clinton-Dix after the ball bounced off the hands of Laquon Treadwell with 2:13 left.Everything seemed to go the Vikings way in the fourth, when they rallied from a 20-7 deficit. Until that point, the Packers had put together the kind of complete performance needed to support Rodgers, who got hurt in Green Bays opening victory against Chicago.Facing double coverage, Adam Thielen still caught a 22-yard touchdown pass from Cousins with 31 seconds left on a drive that included a roughing-the-passer penalty on Clay Matthews. Stefon Diggs caught a 2-point conversion pass to tie it at 29.I dont know where to start, to be honest with you. I have so many emotions running through as far as what a terrible call it was, Matthews said. At the same time, I dont know what else to do.The penalty negated an interception by Jaire Alexander with 1:45 left that would have allowed the Packers to run out the clock. Referee Tony Corrente said the call was not related to the new helmet-to-helmet rule.He picked up the quarterback and drove him into the ground, Corrente told a pool reporter.Rodgers, who finished 30 of 42 Dru Samia Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , didnt have his typical mobility that allows him to busy time for receivers.But he was able to move around enough to scramble out of trouble on occasion. Operating out of shotgun or pistol formations also bought Rodgers more time.The Packers (1-0-1), though, could have used more touchdowns from the offense.They did get one on special teams after Geronimo Allison blocked a punt that was recovered by Josh Jackson in the end zone for a touchdown.Thielen had 12 catches for 131 yards for Minnesota (1-0-1), while Diggs had nine catches for 128 yards and two scores.JUST FOR KICKERSCarlson said he thought it might have been the first time he had missed three field goals in a game.I think I went out each time and it was a new kick, Carlson said. Went out there confident, but something obviously was off and Ive got to fix that and help this team.The last attempt from 35 was set up with the ball placed between the hash marks, but Carlson still missed.JUST FOR KICKERS IICrosby almost had six field goals, but his first, successful attempt from 52 at the end of the regulation was erased because the Vikings called timeout right before the snap.QUOTABLEWere disappointed with the outcome. Had a number of opportunities to come away with the win, but the tie, as they say, it is what is.
