ATLANTA – In the first start of his NFL career on Sunday afternoon, rookie quarterback Jaren Hall was without the man who was supposed to block his blindside.
After suffering a groin injury late this week, left tackle Christian Darrisaw was inactive for the Vikings against the Atlanta Falcons. He was downgraded to questionable in the 24 hours before the game, suggesting he could potentially be ruled out.
The likely replacement for Darrisaw is veteran left tackle David Quessenberry.
Other Vikings inactives included safety Lewis Cine, running back Kene Nwangwu, linebacker Brian Asamoah, tight end Nick Muse, receiver Jalen Nailor and defensive tackle Dean Lowry.
