Andrew Booth Jr. News

Placed on IR

Booth was placed on injured reserve Wednesday after having surgery on his injured meniscus.

Analysis: Booth's injury comes as a major blow to the Vikings, making an injury-riddled secondary even thinner. The rookie cornerback is expected to miss the remainder of the regular season but could potentially return for the playoffs. Booth's presence will be greatly missed this week against the Jets, who's passing game looked red-hot in the win over the Bears.

Done for season

Both (knee) will not return this season, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Booth had surgery Monday to repair his knee, and initially it was believed there was a chance he could return in January. However, it appears after the procedure was completed it was determined that would not be possible. The second-round rookie selection will now turn his focus on being ready for the 2023 campaign. Kris Boyd will be a candidate to see increased opportunity with Booth sidelined.

Return this season uncertain

Coach Kevin O'Connell said Monday that Booth (knee) will "more than likely" head to injured reserve after having undergone knee surgery, Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: O'Connell said Booth's injury is "either going to be something that potentially ends his season" or a situation that could see him return "at some point in January." The rookie second-round pick began earning a role on defense starting Week 10, and he notched 12 total tackles in his last two games played. Starting with Sunday's game against the Jets, and as long as Booth remains out, Kris Boyd will likely handle an increased defensive role.

Undergoing knee surgery Monday

Booth will undergo a procedure on his knee Monday, the significance of which won't be determined until post-surgery, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The surgeon needs to be able to access the knee before determining what specific procedure Booth will undergo, potentially ending his season after he popped up on the injury report in Week 12. The rookie made 12 tackles over the last two weeks prior to being absent Thursday and Kris Boyd will likely see a slight uptick in usage moving forward in Booth's absence.

Unavailable against Patriots

Booth (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Patriots, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Analysis: Booth racked up a season-high nine tackles during last week's loss to the Cowboys but was unable to practice this week due to his knee injury. His next chance to suit up will be Dec. 4 against the Jets.

Clears injury report

Booth (quadriceps) was not listed on the Vikings' injury report Wednesday.

Analysis: Booth was ruled out for the fourth game in a row in Week 5 despite returning to practice in full last Friday. The rookie second-round pick played just two snaps on special teams before suffering a quad injury during Minnesota's season opener, and he'll likely step into a reserve role alongside cornerback Chandon Sullivan when available again.

Sitting out Sunday

Booth (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against Chicago.

Analysis: Booth will miss his fourth straight consecutive game due to a quad injury he suffered Week 1. In his only appearance during the season opener, Booth didn't play a defensive snap. As an exclusively special teams player, his absence likely won't make an impact on Minnesota's defense.

Oct 9, 2022 8:44 AM EST


Questionable for Week 5

Booth (quadriceps) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Bears.

Analysis: Booth has not played since Week 1 against the Packers, but he practiced in limited fashion twice prior to logging a full session Friday. He played exclusively on special teams prior to going down, and his role will likely be similar upon his return.

Returns to practice

Booth (quadriceps) was listed as a limited participant on the Vikings' injury report Wednesday.

Analysis: Booth practiced for the first time since suffering a quad injury during the Vikings' season opener against Green Bay, leaving him sidelined over the past three weeks. The rookie second-round pick played just two special-teams snaps in Week 1, though he could emerge into a prominent role at cornerback when healthy.

Oct 5, 2022 8:19 PM EST


Unavailable vs. Saints

Booth (quadriceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against New Orleans.

Analysis: Booth will miss his third straight game due to a lingering quadriceps injury, while the Vikings hope to get him back in the lineup Week 5. The rookie second-round pick didn't play a defensive snap during his only appearance this season, in Minnesota's season opener.

Oct 2, 2022 5:17 AM EST


Unlikely to play Sunday

Booth (quadriceps) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Saints.

Analysis: Booth is in line to miss a third consecutive contest after picking up a quad injury during the season opener. The rookie second-round pick played exclusively on special teams during his NFL debut, so his absence hasn't had an impact on Minnesota's defensive game plan.

Doesn't practice Wednesday

Booth (quadriceps) didn't practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Booth has missed back-to-back games after picking up a quadriceps injury during the season opener.

Doesn't practice Wednesday

Booth (quadriceps) didn't practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Booth suffered the injury during the team's Week 1 win over the Packers and was ruled out for Week 2.

Sep 21, 2022 2:47 PM EST


Ruled out

Booth (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Monday's contest against the Eagles, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Analysis: Booth suffered the injury during the team's Week 1 win over the Packers and couldn't return. There was optimism that with the next day off that he'd be back for Week 2, but the rookie second-round pick was unable to practice all week. His next chance to play will come in Week 3 against the Eagles.

Sep 17, 2022 3:08 PM EST


Misses practice

Booth (quadriceps) did not practice Thursday, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Booth suffered the injury during the team's Week 1 contest with the Packers and was unable to return. It was reported Monday that he had a chance to return in Week 2, but his absence from practice Thursday may have him leaning closer to doubtful than questionable. However, with the Vikings not playing until Monday, Booth will have an extra day to heal.
