Well, the worst-case scenario for Nick Easton and the rest of the Vikings offensive line just became official:

Easton injured his knee earlier in the week and was going in for a second opinion…

Well, looks like that second opinion clearly didn’t go well.

The Vikings will now look to move on from Nick Easton and try to build a somewhat sustainable offensive line without him. We now know Richie Incognito is out of the mix.. Will the Vikings try to bring in a different free agent or swing a rare trade at this time of year? Or, will they opt to stick with what they’ve got and try to improve those already-internal guys?

I’m honestly not sure. They better make it work, though. With the team the Vikings have, it’d be very sad to see the rest of this team go to waste because of the deficiencies that sit on the O-Line…

Let us know what you would like the Vikings to do at offensive line, now that Easton is done for the season. Comment below, or on our Facebook Page, or our Twitter account.
