McKinnie playing with broken hand
Wednesday, October 17th, 2007hello
LT Bryant McKinnie didnít just suffer from food poisoning during an infamous Sept. 30 game against Green Bay. McKinnie also broke his left hand, he revealed today in an interview
with Star Tribune columnist Patrick Reusse.
McKinnie has not missed a game since he entered the league midway through the 2002 season and he played through the injury last weekend in Chicago. McKinnie also played through a broken hand during training camp in 2006.
For the time being, McKinnie is playing with padding over his current injury.

Practice update and more
LB Vinny Ciurciu (ankle sprain) and FB Naufahu Tahi (MCL sprain) were the only two players not on the field during the early portion of practice. Vikings coach Brad Childress said during his press conference that both players were scheduled to get treatment at a pool today.
Meanwhile, Vikings coach Brad Childress was effusive in his praise of Dallas' second-ranked offense.
"Weíll have our hands full, in terms of them on offense," Childress said. "And when you talk about a team that scored 45, 37, 34, 35, 25, and 27 in a loss, against the No. 1 defense, I donít know if we can slow them down."
Asked if his offense needs to step up, Childress said, "Well, I would say we better, because with the numbers I just recited to you, three points is not liable to win this game, I donít think."
