As Mike Rosenthal left on a cart early in Monday night's game with the Eagles, the first fear was that Jevon Kearse, who was putting heat on Daunte Culpepper from the game's first play, would have a field day.
He did, but word this morning that the injury sustained by Rosenthal wasn't the sprain the medical staff first indicated. VU has been told that the damage is much more severe and that Rosenthal will likely be placed on injured reserve to open a roster spot.
VU is following up on this story and will have more information in our next update, as well as the injury status of tight end Jermaine Wiggins -- who broke a bone in his left hand is expected to miss 2-3 weeks or more.
In addition, VU has received a copy of the judge's decision in the Kelci Stringer wrongful death suit appeal. The Vikings, their personnel and medical staff were all cleared of charges in a lower court ruling and, in an appellate decision announced this morning, the judge again sided with the Vikings and the lower court ruling.
