Scott to IR, Daniels called up from practice squad

The Vikings placed DE Darrion Scott on the injured reserve today because of a broken foot.

As a result of the injury, Scott will require a pin.

After practice Monday, Scott was in the locker room with a walking boot on.

The Vikings filled the roster spot by promoting OG Brian Daniels from the practice squad.

Scott lost a training camp battle to start at left end with Kenechi Udeze, and he did not have a sack this season. A free-agent after this season, Scott led the Vikings with 5.5 sacks last season.

Although he was a backup, Scott was valuable because he could also swing inside and spell defensive tackles Pat Williams and Kevin Williams.

With Scott's injury, DE Erasmus James will likely get into the lineup soon, especially after coach Brad Childress said his knee is no longer a concern.

Less than cheery news, but perhaps Robison will see more reps now. An increased role for Robison can only benefit this defense, as he has been its purest pass rusher so far this season.
