NFL briefs: Freeman to Minnesota, agent says
Josh Freeman is headed to Minnesota.
Freeman’s agent, Erik Burkhardt, revealed the move in a one-word tweet Sunday night, saying: “Vikings!!!”
Freeman was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, a week after being benched in favor of rookie Mike Glennon.
Christian Ponder, the Vikings’ first-round draft pick three years ago, struggled mightily at quarterback in the first three games of the season, all losses.
Matt Cassel took over in the last game while Ponder rested his injured ribs, and he gave the struggling unit a jolt.
Vick injured in Eagles’ win
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick left Sunday’s game against the New York Giants with a left hamstring injury.
Vick grabbed his left hamstring while gaining 13 yards on a running play in the second quarter. He finished that series and began the Eagles’ next possession, but left after one incomplete pass. He did not return.
Jags’ Joeckel out rest of season
Jacksonville rookie offensive tackle Luke Joeckel will miss the rest of the season because of a broken right ankle.
Joeckel was injured in the first quarter of a 34-20 loss to the Rams on Sunday. He was taken off the field on a cart.
Joeckel got his leg rolled up by Rams defensive tackle Kendall Langford at the end of a 1-yard carry by Maurice Jones-Drew.
