Minnesota Vikings Jerome Simpson sat out during the Vikings 38-26 loss over the Redskins with a back injury; Percy Harvin got banged up but expects to be good to go moving forward.
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson sat out during the Vikings 38-26 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday because of a back injury. Simpson has only played one full game out of Minnesota's first six contests.
Simpson was suspended for the Vikings first three games of the season and played sparingly last week against the Tennessee Titans due to leg soreness.
Minnesota's other starting wide receiver, Percy Harvin, was the team's most productive performer Sunday and was seen limping on the sidelines during the game, but said that he'll be fine after a Monday ice bath.
Vikings right guard Geoff Schwartz saw the field for the first time this season as he returned from hernia surgery. Schwartz served as the backup for Brandon Fusco, but still saw game action during several series.
Safety Mistral Raymond missed the game with an ankle injury and linebacker Marvin Mitchell sat out with a calf injury.
