yeah that sucks saw it on ESPNEWS

IMO you never had a shot at the playoffs this season, to many holes and unless the Bears were just a mirage last year then it wasnt happening for you, and this lessens the already slim chance

Im calling for Tarvaris Jackson to start (since Johnson has no upside and you arent making the playoffs anyway), damn he looked good at QB

anyway Ive never been a greenway fan but sorry your guy got hurt

There aren't near as many holes as you would think. I just hate to see anyone hurt, especially season ending, during the preseason.

there were a lot, i mean a LOT of people around here clamoring for us to take this guy in the first round.... i was not among them, and i'm so glad we didn't... and not just because he was an injury-prone linebacker... this guy has trev alberts written all over him...

a tall, lanky linebacker from the big 10? have we as fans learned nothing from the disaster that was rick graf?

Vikes can take the North.Vikes have a strong Dline (one of the best) and and strong secondary.Yes the Greenway loss is huge seeing how thats Minnesotas weakest postion.I think they still can win the north.Brad Johnson if he stays healthy will produce nicley.The offense fits him perfectly.They have nice RB depth with the addtion of Chester Taylor.They also got Birk!But damn 2 great players loss for the year.Tank Williams and Chad Greenway get better!!!

Why would the Vikes give up on making the playoffs before the season starts? Because of the mighty Bears? Packers? Cmon. They have a good shot of winning that division, the teams in the division suck. Brad Johnson is going to have a good year in that offense, hes always been a high percentage passer, he will do well. You dont throw a season in the toliet to develop Tarvaris Jackson I mean cmon the guy looked good in a preseason game. The NFL Europe and the Arena League are full of "guys that looked good in the Preseason".

Vikings rookie linebacker Chad Greenway is out for the season, the result of a knee injury (http://www.srch-results.com/lm/rtl3.asp?si=77&k=knee%20injury) he sustained in Minnesota's first exhibition game.

Greenway was hurt covering a kickoff in Monday night's 16-13 loss to the Oakland Raiders. He had an MRI test Tuesday morning, but a news release issued by the team didn't specify the nature of the injury. It's likely a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (http://www.srch-results.com/lm/rtl3.asp?si=77&k=anterior%20cruciate%20ligament), judging by the way he hobbled off the field, the way he was examined by trainers on the sideline, and the expected length of his absence.

Coaches and players were unavailable for comment Tuesday, the first day off for the Vikings since training camp began. In a prepared statement, coach Brad Childress said he was confident the first-round draft pick would be "completely healthy for the 2007 season."

While he has been the backup weakside linebacker to E.J. Henderson all spring and summer, Greenway was destined for a significant role in the defense -- especially on passing downs. His athleticism is also a good fit for special teams, where he was playing when he got hurt.

Hey I was looking on nfl.com and I saw that Chad Greenway got hurt in the first preseason match and is now out for the whole season what bummer for the vikings but now i am just glad that Jason Allen is signed and we are getting closer to a playoff bound season

Who is to say he would have gotten injured in Miami. In fact he probably wouldn't have. It was a freak thing where a guy rolled on his leg. I love Jason Allen and I'm glad we drafted him, but Greenway getting hurt is anything but a knock on him.

I agree most of these injuries are random accidents but some guys are truly injury prone. Don't think that is the case here with his college track record.

I agree. Greenway will be great I was lucky enough to follow his play at Iowa. JA seems to be a great pick as well.

Seriously, Why do people always make posts like this when someone gets hurt? Who the hell knows if it would have happened if he was here??? Football is a full contact sport, injuries happen!
