LB Desmond Bishop Fighting For A Spot On The Vikings Roster
With a new opportunity with the Vikings to revive his career, linebacker Desmond Bishop hasn’t been able to stay on the field, Dan Wiederer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
His absence from last Friday’s preseason opener was because of a groin pull he suffered a week earlier, another injury obstacle at an inopportune time. No wonder Bishop’s anxiety has elevated as a critical stretch arrives.
“This is going to determine whether or not he makes our team,” coach Leslie Frazier said. “So much of this is about how he plays over the next two weeks. Or if he’s not available because of his injury. I can’t say it any simpler than that. It’s a big two weeks for him. He needs to show us he can help our football team in order to make our team.”
Bishop didn’t have the offseason program with the Vikings to leave a lasting impression. And now he has had only a handful of full-tilt practices in training camp to showcase his skills.
