Zimmer: Status quo at tackle…for now

By Matthew Coller

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said that tackles Jeremiah Sirles and TJ Clemmings will open this week of practice as the projected starting tackles. Of course, that could change as the week goes along.

The Vikings signed free agent tackle Jake Long last week after they placed Andre Smith on injured reserve.

“I don’t know, I mean we’ve had two practices,” Zimmer said when asked about Long. “Today will be the first day in pads, I haven’t seen him in pads yet. Expectations can change quickly one way or the other. I’m trying to go by what I see and go from there.”

Clemmings struggled against the Houston Texans, giving up several free shots at Sam Bradford. Zimmer said last week that Clemmings mostly has played well but does some “crazy things” a few times per game. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the worst tackle in the NFL.
