Vikings S Harrison Smith May Need Season Ending Surgery On Toe


Minnesota Vikings S Harrison Smith may need to have surgery on his toe that could put him out for the rest of the season. Smith has had turf toe and the surgery would correct that issue.

The current plan for the Vikings is to let the injury heal, but Smith will miss Monday’s game against the Vikings and possibly a couple more after that. A couple of doctors have already recommended that he have surgery on the toe.

With Smith out of the lineup, the Vikings would rely on Andrew Sendejo who took over for Smith when he had to miss the rest of the game on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.

It would be tough to replace Smith in the lineup. He is one of the more productive players on the defensive side of the football. As a rookie last season he finished the season with 97 tackles and 3 interceptions. He returned 2 of those interceptions for touchdowns. He already has a couple of interceptions this season and has a total of 33 tackles.

Touch loss for the Vikings.
