The Eagles have placed the 25-year-old running back on injured reserve, the team announced Monday.
The defending Super Bowl champs have gotten off to a rocky start with the loss to Minnesota bringing their record to a disappointing 2-3.
The victory moved the Vikings to 2-2-1, tying them for second in the NFC North with the Packers.
Rather than trying to pound the ball into the Eagles' top-ranked run defense, DeFilippo dialed up a handful of creative perimeter runs to give the Vikings some productivity on the ground, while trusting Cousins to do the rest. Costly penalties stalled drives.
The Vikings are now crushing the Eagles, 20-3.
Barr played well, and more to the point, played from the position on the field he has the experience and skill for. Offensive Tackle Lane Johnson missed a block that resulted in the sack and fumble that was returned for a touchdown. "I think the ref was getting ready to throw the flag and I was a great teammate, I went in there and pulled him out of the scuffle to not cost the team 15 yards and get him to the sideline", Cox said. "If I remember correctly we had maybe three carries at the end of the first quarter". I'll bite the bullet. Put it all on me.
That could make this season a hard one for Wentz and the Eagles. "But we have to clean it up".
I know real football guys hate math, but Pederson apparently doesn't. "I think focus really is the word when you look at just doing your job snap in and snap out whether it is 70 plays or 50 plays".
"But it was also, as most National Football League games [are], was very important this week because of the nature of getting out with a lead and making sure we stayed with the course and finished". "Little mistakes are killing us". This is a totally new season, new team, everything about it as we are finding out. "We're shooting ourselves with penalties and turnovers that are hurting our offense".
The struggles continued to start this season. Fans booed the team heading into the locker room trailing 17-3 at the half. It seems like it's where we were two years ago, when we were that young team, making those mistakes, kind of having those ebbs and flows. Scoring early coupled with the ability to stop the run by the defense made opponents predictable and one-dimensional.
And so, after a 38-7 loss in the NFC title game to the Eagles, the Vikings went with their boldest solutions: They flew to Philadelphia on the day of the Eagles' Super Bowl parade, hiring quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo to be their next coordinator, and bid farewell to Keenum, Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater, setting their sights on Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, even though landing him would require a fully-guaranteed $84 million contract.
