Vikings’ social justice committee going over ways to raise cause awareness on video game days
The Vikings’ social justice committee, consisting of linebacker Eric Kendricks, linebacker Anthony Barr, running back Ameer Abdullah and safety Anthony Harris, satisfied during the gamers’ day off Tuesday to discuss how to attract attention to social justice triggers on game days. Players have “a couple things on the docket” and have yet to decide, Kendricks stated.
” We talked about that for a while, the social justice committee, that is,” he stated. “We’ll be establishing that as we get to Sunday. However yeah, the conversation is alive. I do not wish to say we’re going to do one thing, but we have a couple things on the docket. We’ll see.”
Cousins’ next action?
Quarterback Kirk Cousins understands wins are the primary stat for quarterbacks, and his employer had a clear answer when inquired about the quarterback’s next step entering his 3rd Vikings season. Coach Mike Zimmer want to see more of what Cousins performed in overtime of the playoff upset at New Orleans last season.
” The biggest thing for Kirk is to continue the things that he’s succeeded and then, when we get to the end of ballgames, to go win,” Zimmer said. “That’s what everyone desires out of the quarterback, is to go win games in the fourth quarter.”
NFL teams this season can “protect” up to four practice squad players weekly from being signed to another team’s lineup, and the Vikings on Wednesday made such a designation with newly signed kicker Chase McLaughlin. He’s untouchable to other teams through Sunday’s game.
