Vikings right tackle Phil Loadholt and wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson both dealt with injuries in the 24-21 loss to the Packers on Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium.
Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said Loadholt will have an MRI on his left shoulder after suffering the injury with six minutes left on the Vikings’ final offensive possession. He kept moving around his shoulder, attempting to loosen it up, before he was replaced by Mike Harris at right tackle.
Loadholt declined to comment after the game about the injury.
Patterson suffered a knee and ankle injury after a 42-yard kickoff return with 2:41 left in the third quarter. It was his longest return of the season, but Patterson was tackled from behind by safety Morgan Burnett.
The wide receiver was listed as questionable but returned on the team’s final drive.
“It was the fourth quarter and the trainer told me if I could go, then go,” Patterson said. “Just go out there and finish the game, and we’ll talk about it later. I felt like I needed to be out there to try and help the team out, so I got back out there.”
