Vikings place LG Easton on IR, add long snapper

By Matthew Coller

The Minnesota Vikings lost a key offensive lineman against the Green Bay Packers when guard Nick Easton suffered an ankle injury. He was placed on injured reserve Tuesday and the Vikings signed long snapper Jeff Overbaugh.

Long snapper Kevin McDermott suffered a shoulder injury against the Packers, forcing David Morgan to take over the role. He successfully snapped for the second half of the game.

The Vikings elected to bring in an experienced long snapper to fill McDermott’s role. Overbaugh snapped for San Diego State. Per the Vikings’ information, he successfully snapped all 409 kicks and punts in his college career and was named the the top specialist at the Senior Bowl.
