Vikings’ Floyd Has Minor Knee Surgery, Will Miss Rest Of Preseason
Minnesota Vikings first-round draft pick defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd is expected to miss the remainder of the preseason after having a procedure performed on his left knee.
Profootballtalk.com cites a Minneapolis Star Tribune report that Vikings’ head coach Leslie Frazier said the procedure wasn’t an arthroscopic surgery and merely called it a minor procedure. Frazier indicated that Floyd will not play Sunday in the nationally televised game against the San Francisco 49ers, and probably won’t play in the preseason finale against the Tennessee Titans next week.
Floyd initially injured his knee in the Vikings’ preseason opener against the Houston Texans last week. He’s not slated to be a week one starter, but figures to be in the mix along the D-line during the 2013 season.
