Vikings WR Jarius Wright Out With A Concussion
Last night, Jarius Wright was in for 23 of 25 plays the first team offense was on the field, catching two passes for 16 yards. What is more important than those numbers, though, is what Star-Tribune Vikings beat writer Dan Wiederer tweeted out a little while ago:
"Vikings WR Jarius Wright suffered a concussion Friday. Will have to pass NFL testing protocol before returning to practice."
For the time being, one would assume this bumps Cordarrelle Patterson to the primary slot guy when the Vikings go three wide. And for when the Vikings go four wide, this could give someone like Stephen Burton, Joe Webb, or one of the other guys at the bottom of the depth chart extra reps and another opportunity to change some minds.
But it could also be one more setback for a first team passing offense that has struggled more than they have found success this pre-season.
