Vikings Place Loadholt on IR With Torn Achilles Tendon
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Vikings have placed right tackle Phil Loadholt on injured reserve, ending his season with a torn left Achilles tendon.
The move was made Tuesday, when the Vikings signed offensive tackle Stephen Goodin to fill Loadholt's roster spot. Loadholt was hurt on the second play from scrimmage Saturday in an exhibition game.
Goodin was undrafted out of NCAA Division II school Nebraska-Kearney in 2012. He spent parts of two years on the practice squad of the New York Giants, appearing in one regular-season game in 2013. Goodin was in camp last August with the Dallas Cowboys.
Rookie T.J. Clemmings has taken Loadholt's place in the lineup.
