I expect Jerome Simpson to have a big week this week.

He plays alot taller than he really is. Anyone notice that?

I don't know that Simpson is the answer as a deep threat, but he certainly opened things up more for Ponder than having Jenkins run those routes. He can make a better play on the ball, but against a better secondary not sure if he would have gotten as many pass interference.


He may not be THE answer, but he will be an integral part of this offense going forward this season.

I'm very satisfied with his performance yesterday. While he didn't put up huge stats forcing two long P.I penalties has the same effect. Also made a hell of a catch on the late game pass. Hope to see him targeted even more going forward. Hope he keeps plaing well and we can keep him around.

Vikings receiver Jerome Simpson sat out long stretches of the team's win over the Tennessee Titans, spending much of the game dealing with tightness in his lower left leg. Simpson wasn't sure what caused the tightness but said he first felt pain in his leg the night before the game, and couldn't get loose during warmups.

Simpson: "I just felt like my foot was kind of asleep, I guess. Until we know the diagnostics, I really can't say if it's a foot, a calf or what. I really don't know right now."

The Vikings are trying to determine why wide receiver Jerome Simpson woke up with numbness and weakness in his lower left leg before Sunday's game against Tennessee. Coach Leslie Frazier said Simpson was undergoing MRI tests on Monday.

Simpson played in parts of Minnesota's 30-7 win, but he didn't catch any passes. He had trouble pushing off because of the injury, which Frazier said could also be connected to his back. Frazier said Simpson was "alarmed'' by his condition but that the Vikings don't believe he's facing a long-term absence.

That seems concerning. Parts of your body aren't just supposed to randomly lose feeling. I hope just for his sake it's not something serious.

A slipped disc perhaps? Could keep him out for a few weeks if it's serious.

The lower leg weakness that hindered Vikings receiver Jerome Simpson during Sunday's 30-7 victory over Tennessee was caused by a back problem, according to an NFL source. Simpson underwent a magnetic resonance imaging exam Monday in an attempt to diagnose the strange weakness he felt in his leg.

The MRI revealed a back issue, the specifics and severity of which are not yet fully known. Simpson will undergo further testing and visit with additional doctors Tuesday. But at present, according to the source, Simpson's injury isn't thought to be serious.

Frazier said today that Monday's magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam revealed that Jerome Simpson's lower left leg weakness and numbness was more the result of a back issue that won't sideline the receiver long, if at all. He will sit out today's practice.

Frazier: "All indications are there is a very good chance [he will play at Washington.] We'll know more as he responds to some of the treatment that they give him today. Hopefully, we'll get him back at practice tomorrow. But we don't think it's anything long-term at all. He's much better than he was on Sunday. He went through the walk-through fine. This is more cautionary just to give him another day of rest and recuperation."

Simpson Upset Deactivation Cost 60K:

Quote:
He receives per-game bonuses that only count if he's on the Vikings' active roster.

"You lose $60,000, you'd be mad, too," said Simpson, who missed the first three games this season while on suspension for a drug arrest. "I'm just a competitor, man. I just want to be out there on the field. Any time something is getting taken away from you, obviously you're going to be upset about it. Just like if you couldn't write any more. I'm pretty sure you'd be upset."

I have nothing against Simpson not being active, it was odd, but if Frazier think he physically and mentally cant play, Simpson needs to take it upon himself to be in a better position to contribute. Hopefully he can play against Arizona.

Vikings receiver Jerome Simpson was on the field for 39 snaps Sunday against Arizona. He caught one pass and drew a key pass interference penalty. Other than that, Christian Ponder didn't throw his way.

And he's OK with that.

Simpson: "We just had a good game plan. Adrian had a very good game, we just wanted to block well for him, win the game. If it's Adrian's night, us receivers will block as best we can. As long as we're winning, everything is good."
