Vikings place Mackensie Alexander on IR, downgrade Jayron Kearse to OUT – Daily Norseman,


The issues are really starting to pile up in the secondary for theMinnesota Vikings, as they made a couple of moves on Sunday that might leave that part of the defense scrambling.

On Friday, the Vikings officially placed cornerbackMackensie Alexanderon injured reserve. Mackensie injured his knee in the Vikings ’regular season finale against theChicago Bearsand had surgery on his meniscus earlier this week. The team was reportedly holding out hope that he might be able to come back should they advance in the playoffs, but placing him on IR today brings that hope to an end.

To takeAlexander‘s spot on the roster, the Vikings promoted cornerbackNate Meadorsfrom the practice squad. Meadors spent the preseason with the Vikings, and got a nice highlight with a pick-six in the preseason opener in New Orleans. He has been with the practice squad all season, and is now up on the big roster.

The Vikings have not yet signed anyone to take Meadors ’spot on the practice squad.
