Minnesota Vikings Injury Update: WR Michael Jenkins Leads Four Players Placed On IR

The Minnesota Vikings enter Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos with an injury-riddled team that sent four players to Injured Reserve on Tuesday afternoon. Wide receiver Michael Jenkins, safeties Husain Abdullah and Tyrell Johnson, and long snapper Cullen Loeffler all had their seasons ended due to injury, reports Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN Twin Cities.

Jenkins suffered a knee injury in Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons and had just two catches for 25 yards. For the season, Jenkins has 41 catches for 505 yards and two touchdowns. Abdullah had a concussion two weeks ago and apparently is still suffer the effects of it. Johnson hurt his hamstring on Sunday and left the game in the second quarter. Loeffler's lower back was fractured on Sunday.
