Berger will start at guard with Ducasse deactivated

Star Tribune Sports - Sun, 10/26/2014 - 10:52
Veteran Joe Berger will start at right guard against the Buccaneers today after Vlad Ducasse, who had started at the position since Brandon Fusco went down in Week 3, was deactivated. Ducasse suffered a knee injury in last Sunday’s loss to the Bills. Both he and head coach Mike Zimmer downplayed the injury during the week and Ducasse was a full participant in practice on both Thursday and Friday. But interestingly, the team made the decision to deactivate him. Undrafted rookie Austin Wentworth — no, not fifth-round pick David Yankey — will be the backup interior lineman today. Yankey was again listed as inactive. He has yet to suit up this season. The rest of the Vikings’ inactives include fullback Zach Line, outside linebackers Gerald Hodges and Brandon Watts, rookie defensive end Scott Crichton and recovering tight end Kyle Rudolph. Note that cornerback Josh Robinson was not on that list. He will play today after rolling his ankle during Thursday’s practice and sitting out the rest of the week’s practices. How much will he play? We have no idea. But if he is limited, rookie Jabari Price would likely be the third cornerback then. As for the Buccaneers, quarterback Josh McCown is active but Mike Glennon will be the starting QB. Inactive for the Buccaneers are quarterback Mike Kafka, safety Keith Tandy, cornerback Brandon Dixon, linebackers Johnathan Casillas and Brandon Magee, offensive tackle Kevin Pamphine and guard Kadeem Edwards.
