Minnesota Vikings Shariff Floyd Out for Rest of Preseason
Head Coach Leslie Frazier says the plan is to have Floyd back for their Week 1 game against Detroit.
Floyd was injured in the Vikings preseason opener against Houston, but the the first-round draft pick walked off on his own power.
In other Vikings news, the team put defensive lineman Christian Ballard on the active-left squad for personal reasons. Ballard hasn’t practiced since the Vikings preseason opener and the Vikings think he may dealing with a groin pull.
With the absences of Floyd and Ballard, the Vikings signed defensive lineman Spencer Nealy, an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M. Nealy, 6’3″, and 285, was recently released by Detroit.
