Desmond Bishop will not return to the game Sunday after a knee injury

MINNEAPOLIS — Linebacker Desmond Bishop drew his first start of the season Sunday, but it didn’t last long.

Bishop, who had played well in backup duty this season, was injured in the first half. The team announced it is a knee injury and he will not return Sunday.

Bishop went down holding his left leg and was in clear pain, but as he walked off the field without assistance, he appeared visibly frustrated. Before he left, he recorded one tackle at the line of scrimmage in limited action.

He’s dealt with hamstring injuries in the past, but it was announced this injury is to his knee. It’s a setback for Bishop, but more importantly, it’s a blow for the Vikings defense, which gave up 163 yards in the first half to the Panthers.
