Herrera out for Vikings; Berrian still sidelined

UPDATE: Herrera spent the second half on crutches on the sideline, and coach Brad Childress said during his postgame news confernce the guard was probably done for the season. He indicated more would be known following tests Monday.


The Vikings battled a few injuries early in Sunday’s game against the Packers.

Starting right guard Anthony Herrera left the game during the first quarter with a left knee injury and has been listed as doubtful to return. Herrera, who was questionable to play Sunday because of an elbow injury that limited him in practice, was replaced by Ryan Cook.

WR Bernard Berrian might be a late scratch for the second consecutive week. Berrian, who didn’t play last week after aggravating his groin injury during warmups, has yet to take the field against the Packers and was spotted receiving treatment on the trainer’s table during the first quarter. With the return of Sidney Rice, the Vikings might not push Berrian.

LB Chad Greenway also left the game briefly during the first quarter after reportedly being poked in the eye, but he returned on the next series with a shield under his face mask.
