Minnesota Vikings saddened by the release of 11-year veteran defensive end Brian Robison, one of
the most difficult moves made during the weekend roster reduction.The Cris Carter Jersey departure
of the team’s longest-tenured player made Newman think even deeper about the passage of time and
his place in the game. Soon after Robison was let go, then, Newman accepted an offer to serve as
the assistant defensive backs coach and thus declare his retirement as a player.More Vikings

feel like having experienced so much stuff, met so many people, for me it’s not a hard transition.
Some people get depressed and they have a hard time leaving the game, but I’ve loved this game
since the day I played it.”Standing behind a podium on Monday at team headquarters to discuss his
unexpected decision, Newman began to tear up. He paused, looking down with his hand pressed against
his forehead.“It was my time, you know?” Newman said, after composing himself.Vikings coach Mike
Zimmer presented the opportunity to Newman on Saturday, when NFL teams had to reach the 53-man
limit for the regular season. Newman, who will turn 40 on Tuesday, said he could’ve kept his spot
on the roster if he preferred to keep playing. That would’ve meant releasing a younger player.“At
some point, you have to be true to yourself and say, ‘Hey, do I want to keep going forward, have a
chance to maybe tear up your back or neck or whatever?'” Newman said. “Some of the younger talent,
obviously, you have to either say, ‘I’ll be selfish,’ and maybe take the roster spot or get
somebody else an opportunity to live their dream. So, it was pretty easy. Everybody’s asking me if
I’m OK and all this. I’m good. I’m still in football. I still have an opportunity to chase a Super
Bowl ring.”10View Gallery Gallery:Top Tweets: This Vikings photo is just begging for a caption
contestNewman signed with the Vikings in 2015, the third stop in his career. He played for Zimmer
Chris Doleman Jersey Black Friday , then a defensive coordinator, with Dallas and Cincinnati
too.“Helping out some of the younger guys, it’s a form of coaching, I guess,” Newman said. “And I
think everybody just assumed that I would do it, so I would like to give it a shot.”The fifth
overall pick in the 2003 draft was then asked how he anticipated his life outside of football being
different.“If the hours are anything like yesterday, it’s going to change drastically,” said
Newman, whose 42 interceptions were the most among active players following the retirement this
spring of DeAngelo Hall. “I’m not going to have many friends outside of this building, that’s for
sure.”Newman’s shift to the sideline puts Mackensie Alexander (age 24) in the nickel cornerback
spot and Mike Hughes (age 21) as the next in line. Robison’s release paved the way for Stephen
Weatherly (age 24) and Tashawn Bower (age 23) to become the primary backups to Everson Griffen and
Danielle Hunter.“The guy had an awesome career and he played at a high level,” Griffen said. “Do I
wish he was here? Of course. I miss my brother. In this league, in this business, the train’s going
to keep on moving.”Even the punter, Ryan Quigley, was jettisoned on Sunday after Matt Wile was
available on waivers after being let go by Pittsburgh, with the Vikings picking a 26-year-old over
a 28-year-old. Wile punted for Arizona and Atlanta in 2016, but was not on a roster in 2017.“We
just didn’t feel like we were punting very well in the preseason,” Zimmer said. GREEN BAY, Wis.
鈥?Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer isn’t buying it.The Green Bay Packers can say all they want
that quarterback Aaron Rodgers is day to day with a knee injury. The two-time NFL MVP will be given
the whole week to get ready for Sunday’s game against Minnesota, coach Mike McCarthy said.“Yeah,
well, you know he walks on water, so I’m sure he’s going to play,” Zimmer said Wednesday in a
conference call.More Packers coverage from FOX Sports WisconsinPackers’ Rodgers seeks to outplay

10/20/18Green Bay returned to the practice field on Wednesday, though Rodgers did not participate
and stayed at Lambeau Field to rehab. Asked at his locker if it was accurate to say his injury was
a sprained knee, Rodgers said, “Sure … say sprained knee.”Wearing a brace could be an option
https://www.minnesotavikingsshop.com/Adrian-Peterson-Jersey , depending on how the quarterback
feels later in the week. If he can’t go, the Packers would turn to backup DeShone Kizer, who
accounted for two turnovers after coming in when Rodgers got hurt in the second quarter last week
against the Bears.“Haven’t even thought about that,” Rodgers said when asked if he had confidence
in Kizer if the backup needed to start.So it’s understandable why Zimmer and the Vikings think
Rodgers will play. After all, Rodgers returned from injury on Sunday after being taken to the
locker room on the front seat of a cart.Rodgers walked back out halftime, took over on the first
series of the second half and threw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to rally the
Packers from 20 points down to a 24-23 victory. He said after the game that while he had to undergo
more tests, he planned on playing against Minnesota.Rehabbing on Wednesday was not a setback,
McCarthy said.“I think anytime a player comes off a game where he’s injured, obviously there’s the
hope of playing,” McCarthy added. “We’ll give him the whole week to get ready. So we’ll take it day
by day and learn as we go.”Rodgers said he was feeling progressively better over the last couple
days, though still sore. The 14-year veteran said he does not need to practice to play.“I mean
every practice is important,” receiver Davante Adams said. “But … two days is not going to make or
break whether (we have) success, whether it’s me and DeShone, me and Aaron, whoever it may
be.”Rodgers has played before with an injured left knee. He tore the ACL in his knee in high
school, and played with the injury for four years before having surgery while in college at
California. He also had a cleanup procedure on the knee a few years ago by the Packers team
doctor.“So I know what it feels like to play with something like this, and hopefully I’ll be at the
point where I can (play) on Sunday,” Rodgers said.He described how he was cleared to play by the
team doctor at halftime against the Bears so long as he could “deal with the pain.” There were a
couple throws in which Rodgers said he got a “jolt” of pain after putting weight on his left
leg.“It’s super painful, and you’ve just got to suck it up and play through it,” Rodgers said at
his locker. “To be in this room, you’ve got to be mentally and physical tough.”If Rodgers does
play, it would be his first game against the Vikings since the two-time MVP broke his right
collarbone following a hit from Minnesota linebacker Anthony Barr on Oct. 15. The injury limited
Rodgers to seven games last year.“We know he’s playing,” Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen
said.NOTESAdams also missed practice after he said he hurt his shoulder when a Bears defensive back
landed on him after making a 51-yard catch. He said he would try to return to practice on Thursday
and was optimistic about playing Sunday. “So we’re just taking it light a little bit just so we can
build up and be ready for Sunday,” Adams said. … S Josh Jones (ankle) missed practice, while rookie
LB Oren Burks (shoulder) was limited.
