Backup defensive end, Darrion Scott broke his left foot today. He was then put on injured reserve, ending his 2007 season.
Prior to the beginning of this season, Scott signed a one-year deal with the Vikes. Scott likely will be done as a Viking.
With Scott being out, Erasmus James (pictured) will once again be able to battle for a starting spot. Ray Edwards, Brian Robison and Kenechi Udeze are all ahead of him on the depth chart.
James, a first round pick in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Vikes, has shown flashes of potential. James missed most of last season with a knee injury.
The Vikes are badly in need of a pass rush, hopefully James can help contribute.
