Mankato, MN - The Vikings offensive line continues to be depleted as Training Camp saw it's second ambulance ride this week.
Offensive Tackle Kevin Murphy left practice about an hour in with two team doctors by his side and a cold towel draped over his head. The trio, headed for the ice bath just behind the trainers tent attempted to cool Murphy's body temperature on site when a precautionary ambulance arrived and took Murphy to the hospital.
After practice, Coach Frazier shared that he had received word that Murphy checked out OK and will be back on site Friday night.
Late Friday night news broke surrounding the diagnosis from offensive guard Geoff Schwartz's MRI. On the same day that he moved in with the first team offense, Schwartz was sent back to the Twin Cities to get what appeared to be an abdominal strain checked out by doctors. The injury was found to be a sports hernia.
It's not yet known whether Schwartz will undergo surgery to repair the injury but if he does he would likely miss a month or so.
With yesterday's proceedings on the o-line, the Vikings were stripped down to only 11 bodies to rotate through camp repetitions. The team worked out two linemen yesterday afternoon before signing Grant Cook, a guard out of the university of Arkansas who briefly spent time with the Green Bay Packers.
To make room on the 90-man roster, the team waived defensive end Eric Latimore.
Update: Early Saturday morning the Vikings made another move signing G Bridger Buche from Eastern Michigan and waiving WR A.J. Love.
