Marcus Davenport of the Vikings may go on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain.

 

In the Vikings’ Week 6 victory over the Bears, Davenport sustained an injury.

Marcus Davenport, a Vikings outside linebacker, has a high-ankle sprain, which typically requires four to six weeks to heal, according to Ian Rapaport of NFL Network. That suggests that Davenport might be placed on injured reserve this week.

When the Vikings defeated the Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday, the injury occurred early in the second quarter.
After 17 snaps on the field, Davenport hopped off and was eventually wheeled to the locker room.
He was seen sporting a walking boot following the game.

Davenport, a first-round pick in 2018 who played five seasons with the Saints, has had a trying first year in Minnesota.
Due to an ankle injury, he missed all but four snaps during the first three games of the season.
After getting better, he performed admirably against the Panthers and Chiefs in recent weeks.
His other ankle, which was not the one that caused him problems in September, is now seriously injured.

Sadly, since his time in New Orleans, injuries have frequently plagued Davenport’s career.
He has missed time due to a variety of illnesses, never playing more than 540 snaps in a season.

Danielle Hunter, D.J, will be relied upon by the Vikings.
Davenport’s replacement at OLB will be Wonnum and Pat Jones II. Andre Carter II, an undrafted rookie, is expected to play and may even have a role.
He was a healthy scratch this past weekend.
