For sure, maybe Mitchell too

I disagree with that. Assuming Bishop starts over Mitchell, which isn't a given, he would still be the #1 backup.


I think it's down to Mitchell vs Cole

Did anyone make the squad that was on the bubble prior to tonight?

Mitchell is fairly proven on special teams so that is a big plus for him. Ultimately, I dont see a spot for Audie Cole.

Seth Olsen walking around in the locker room via Twitter

Good news to hear on what appeared to be a serious injury.

I am just not a fan of Marvin Mitchell. I view him nothing more than an average player the way I view Letroy Guion. He would have to be a stud special teams player (which he isn't) before I would keep him ahead of our youth or someone that is a very good special teams player like Mckenzie.

I agree, which is why Mitchell should make the team. MN needs at least two players who are capable of playing will and Mitchell is more proven then everyone else on special teams outside of McKenzie and Dean. Who else can play will? Cole possibly, I suppose.

Then it's going to be Mitchell, most probably. Can't afford to have the 3 backup LB's with a combined 1 year of experience and probably <10 snaps of NFL snaps in total.

Bye bye Cole, as I've said very early.

So after this game it seems we have our starting LBs.
Greenway-Henderson-Bishop

It wasn't clear if Seth Olsen was attempting a low block or falling forward, but he took a knee from Tennessee Titans linebacker Scott Solomon to the head and landed helmet-first on the turf.

Olsen suffered a concussion, but he returned to the Vikings locker room after the game. He was not available to comment because he needs to pass the NFL's concussion protocol first. He indicated to several teammates, though, that he was fine.

Glad to hear that Olsen seems to be doing all right. He definitely has a shot to make the team but there is a bit of a logjam at backup og.

Hunter didn't quite go for 200, but he did have an impact!!

I can only hope Cordarrelle can be just as good as him.
