Vikings Guard Nick Easton Likely Out for Season

Vikings Guard Nick Easton Likely Out for Season

On Thursday NFL insider Adam Schefter reported that guard-center Nick Easton has undergone surgery for a herniated disc in his neck, and could be out the entire season.

Easton began experiencing discomfort in his neck and back after last Friday's practice and has not practiced since. That second opinion turned out to be bad news.

Easton started 12 games last season before breaking his ankle in the Week 16 victory at Green Bay.

Easton was projected as the team's starting left guard. He has not practiced since injuring his ankle in a July 31 practice.

With the Vikings handing out several massive contract extensions with big signing bonuses to players at other positions this year, the possibility of landing a starting-caliber offensive lineman in free agency is also a massive challenge, making an internal candidate the most logical solution.
