Vikings left tackle Christian Darrisaw was doubtful for Thursday night’s game against the Eagles with an ankle injury. He was active for the game. But he didn’t play a single down.

After the 34-28 loss, coach Kevin O’Connell explained to reporters that Darrisaw aggravated the injury during pregame warmups, after the 90-minute deadline to inactivate players, via Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com.

Darrisaw’s absence converted Oli Udoh to left tackle. He left the game on a cart in the fourth quarter; O’Connell told reporters that Udoh has a knee injury that “doesn’t look good.”

Darrisaw now has 10 days to recover, before Minnesota’s next home game against the Chargers. The biggest problem with short week football is that players injured on a Sunday could have been able to go if they had been given a full week between games. With a few more days, Darrisaw could have healed enough to avoid aggravation.

After Udoh’s departure, David Quessenberry became left tackle. He will presumably play in Week 3 against the Chargers, if Darrisaw can’t go.
