Vikings Depth Chart: Brandon Fusco Expected To Be Regular Season Starter At RG

The Minnesota Vikings look to have reached a resolution on their final offensive line position, as second-year player Brandon Fusco is expected to open the regular season as the team's starting right guard, according to the Pioneer Press.

Though Fusco was not assured of anything other than a backup role heading into camp, a combination of lackluster play and injuries from his competitors made the decision much easier for Vikings coach Leslie Frazier. "There's nothing anyone else has done to unseat him," Frazier said on Tuesday.

The 6'4", 306-pound Fusco was taken in the sixth round by Minnesota in 2011, and has already defied the odds to become an NFL starter in just over one full season. A product of Pennsylvania's Slippery Rock University, a Division II school, Fusco figures to be in store for a breakthrough campaign after only suiting up for three games as a rookie.
