The Minnesota Vikings will be without defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. The Vikings ruled him out on Friday’s injury report, along with backup defensive end Justin Trattou.
Floyd is second on the team with 15 quarterback hits, and pressuring Lions QB Matthew Stafford was a big part of the Vikings’ game plan last month when the Vikings sacked Stafford only once but hit him eight times.
Floyd had two tackles in that game, registering one quarterback hit.
In his place, the Vikings are likely to start Tom Johnson, who is tied for third on the team with 10 quarterback hits and has two more tackles than Floyd this year.
“I think Tom’s play good all year, really. He did a great job in the preseason, did a good job all year,” head coach Mike Zimmer said. “I think we should be fine.”
All the other Vikings listed on the injury report throughout the week are probable, including RB Adrian Peterson, CB Terence Newman, WR Jarius Wright, WR Charles Johnson, WR Jarius Wright and CB Captain Munnerlyn.
