Frazier noncommittal on Berrian's future

Posted by: Chip Scoggins Updated: October 23, 2011 - 9:29 PM

Bernard Berrian's days with the Vikings may be numbered.

The wide receiver was a healthy deactivation Sunday for the second time in three weeks. Vikings coach Leslie Frazier was asked after his team's 33-27 loss to the Green Bay Packers if Berrian has a future with the team going forward.

"It’s something that we’ll talk about this week," Frazier said.

Given that statement, it won't be surprising if the Vikings release Berrian in the next few days.

Berrian was inactive for the Arizona game because of disciplinary reasons. He returned to the lineup last week at Chicago and had five catches for 54 yards.

Frazier said his decision to sit Berrian again on Sunday was not because of a disciplinary reason.

"Just a decision that I made that we’ll probably get into later in the week, one of the decisions I made," Frazier said.
