The Minnesota Vikings announced that right guard Brandon Fusco is out for the remainder of the game after he sustained a concussion.
The Vikings can hardly afford to lose another starting offensive lineman but the team’s offense continues to perform in spite of the number of injuries they’ve sustained in the first five weeks of the season.
It’s worth mentioning that Fusco has had a history of concussions, so this will be something to monitor in the coming days, as he goes through the concussion protocol.
Fusco, 28, is a former sixth-round pick of the Vikings back in 2011. He’s currently in the third year of his six-year, $26 million contract that included $6 million guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $3.12 million for the 2016 season.
Entering today’s game, Fusco had appeared in all four games for the Vikings and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 48 guard out of 71 qualifying players.
We’ll have more regarding Fusco as the news is available.
