The Vikings offensive line might be in real trouble before the season even starts. Injuries have sidelined 3 out of the 5 starting linemen. Starting center Pat Elflein is on the pup list. Right Guard Mike Remmers has been out for a week with an ankle injury and now ESPN's Courtney Cronin reported yesterday that left guard Nick Easton is seeking a second opinion on neck and back injuries.
Vikings left guard Nick Easton will seek a second opinion this week for neck and back injuries, a source tells ESPN. Easton missed Saturday's practice and is being held out today along with starters Pat Elflein and Mike Remmers.

Let's hope coach Zimmer has built enough depth at these positions to not get our new $84 Million Dollar QB Kirk Cousins hurt before the season even starts. In my opinion I don't feel like the team has done enough over the last three years to solidify our offensive line. The Vikings might want to put as much focus on the offensive line as they have put on the defense. Right now the Vikings are unbalanced at best.
Mike Zimmer said Kirk Cousins will play in Denver as long as the first-team offensive line is in. When they go out, he goes out.— Courtney Cronin (@CourtneyRCronin) August 6, 2018
