Zimmer Noncommital On Walsh After Another Missed Extra Point

By Vikings – WCCO | CBS Minnesota

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer was noncommittal when asked about struggling kicker Blair Walsh’s future with the team on Monday.

Walsh missed his fourth extra point of the season in a 26-20 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Minnesota’s fourth straight defeat.

Zimmer says he has yet to talk to general manager Rick Spielman about Walsh. But he did say they will explore all the options available. Last week, the Vikings brought six kickers to team headquarters to work out, but ultimately decided to stick with Walsh, who has missed more extra points than any kicker this season.

The Vikings also will look at options at left tackle after losing Jake Long for the season with a torn Achilles tendon.
