The Minnesota Vikings lost a key member of their offensive line Thursday when left guard Nick Easton was placed on injured reserve because of a bulging disc in his neck.

Coach Mike Zimmer made the announcement at a news conference. Easton hadn't practiced since Aug. 3 because of the injury. He started 12 games in 2017 and five games the year before [url=http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-dante-pettis-jersey]Cheap Dante Pettis Jersey[/url] , playing both center and guard.

Minnesota signed Easton to a one-year, $2.9 million contract in free agency. He'll be an unrestricted free agent after the season. The Vikings are also missing center Pat Elflein (ankle/shoulder) and right guard Mike Remmers (ankle).

"I know everyone is nervous about our offensive line," Zimmer said. "But I like the mentality of those guys. I like how they work. I'm around them quite a bit [url=http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-jeremy-kerley-jersey]Cheap Jeremy Kerley Jersey[/url] , and they're going to figure out a way to get it done."

Minnesota may turn to veteran Tom Compton to replace Easton. The Vikings acquired the Minnesota native in free agency after he spent one year with the Chicago Bears. Before that, he played for the Washington Redskins and Atlanta Falcons.

"We have kind of had him on our radar for a few years," Zimmer said. "When he was at Washington [url=http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/taven-bryan-jersey-cheap]Cheap Taven Bryan Jersey[/url] , he played quite a bit. He played some of their big package. He played some on the offensive line at multiple positions. We felt like he'd be good."

Second-year players Danny Isidora and Aviante Collins may be in the running to increase their role at guard.

Easton was acquired by the Vikings in a 2015 trade from the San Francisco 49ers. He played his way into a starting role with the Vikings but missed the playoffs last season with a broken ankle that sent him to IR. His latest injury may cost him the entire 2018 season.

"He's a tough guy that does a great job of finding a way to get his job done," Zimmer said earlier in the week.

Minnesota plays its first preseason game Saturday night against the Denver Broncos.


Former Chicago Bears and Notre Dame defensive tackle Chris Zorich has been hired as athletic director at Chicago State.

A Chicago product who was on Notre Dame's 1988 national championship team and played for the Bears from 1991-96, Zorich replaces interim AD Tracy Dildy. The school says he will start work on May 8.

The 49-year-old Zorich joins a school that has been hit hard by budget problems in recent years and is looking for two new basketball coaches. Chicago State let Dildy go following a 3-29 season. The school also parted with women's coach Angela Jackson [url=http://authenticlosangeleschargers.com/cheap-derwin-james-jersey]Derwin James Color Rush Jersey[/url] , whose program endured a Division I record 59-game losing streak before beating Utah Valley on Feb. 8. Zorich most recently was AD at Prairie State, a community college in Chicago Heights.

Zorich ran into financial difficulties after his playing career. He was sentenced in 2013 to three years of probation following a federal tax evasion conviction.
