Riley Reiff Color Rush Jersey
Former Vikings defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd has reduced the pending legal actions involving his football career by 50 percent.Via Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune Dalvin Cook Color Rush Jersey , Floyd has withdrawn a grievance challenging the Vikings’ decision to place him on the non-football injury list in 2017. Floyd had claimed that the Vikings should have placed him on injured reserve — and paid his full salary — since the condition that prevented him from playing was the result of a football injury.With Floyd now suing Dr. James Andrews for $180 million as a result of the allegedly botched surgery that ended Floyd’s career, Floyd’s lawyers likely decided that an argument based on the condition that kept him from playing being a football injury versus the product of medical malpractice could undermine the lawsuit against Andrews.NFL teams have no obligation to pay a player on the NFI list. The Vikings opted to pay Floyd half of his $4 million salary. He’d been seeking the remaining $1.9 million from the Vikings; Floyd will now attempt to get that money (and plenty more) from Andrews.With the grievance withdrawn, the Vikings gain $3.9 million in cap space. When we brought you the final injury reports for the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears leading into their big Sunday Night Football contest at Soldier Field Pat Elflein Jersey , the Bears’ injury report was pretty short. . .three whole names, in fact. Well, the Bears have moved one of those players to injured reserve Harrison Smith Color Rush Jersey , and are replacing him with a player that could prove to be another weapon for the Chicago offense.The Bears announced on Saturday that they are activating tight end Adam Shaheen from their injured reserve list. To make room, they have put tight end Dion Sims. . .the only player they had listed as “out” on their injury report. . .to injured reserve with concussion issues.Shaheen was the Bears’ second-round pick in 2017, and caught just 12 passes in his rookie season Riley Reiff Color Rush Jersey , although three of those grabs were for scores. He was expected to play a bigger role in the Chicago offense this season, but was injured in the preseason and was placed on injured reserve.Just one more potential wrinkle for the Vikings’ defense to worry about this Sunday. If we have any more injury updates or roster moves, we will bring them to you here.
