"Vikings: Culpepper may miss next week too

by Fanball Staff - Fanball.com

News
Vikings' quarterback Daunte Culpepper missed Sunday's game against the 49ers because of his back injury and may be forced to miss next week's game against the Falcons too. Culpepper, who suffered three fractured transverse process bones during their week three game against the Bears, said his back stiffened up on him prior to kickoff. "I knew that my body wasn't ready," he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "I knew I wasn't going to start a couple days ago. We just didn't tell [the media]." With the team undefeated and Gus Frerotte playing well, will the Vikes rest Culpepper next week prior to their week six bye? "We're really going to look at that," Tice said. "I'm not sure what we're going to do, but we're going to consider that."

Views
Look for the Vikes to end the speculation early rather than waiting for the weekend. We'd be surprised if Daunte played next week. Frerotte did a great job filling in yesterday and giving Cu! lpepper one more game off would total one month of rest for the injury."


i.e. doesn't look good, but sounds like we should know soon....

I just read that his back was stiffening up before kickoff and that he might be out of this week's game also. Then they have a bye and that would give him 4 weeks off since the injury.

Probably not a bad play against ATL, but who else do you have?

BTW, you may want to register so you can give that info with one click of the "roster" button.

It wouldn't be too bad for me if he takes another week off to rest, I have Ramsey as my back-up and I don't want Culpepper to not be 100%.

If you can afford the roster spot, and don't have another viable backup.....yes, pick him up.

I don't have another option, I had Holcomb but with his broke leg I dropped him and got Carr(vs Jax), but now Carr is on the bye.
