Harrison Smith on crutches and in a walking boot

The hits keep on coming for the injury-plagued Vikings.

On Thursday we did a sarcastic story titled "Proof that God hates the Vikings." As Aaron Rodgers has made clear, God isn't very interested in football, but it sure feels like something is up because another star player is injured.

Harrison Smith, one of the best safeties in the NFL, was on crutches and in a walking boot after the game.

According to Pro Football Talk, Smith has been dealing with an ankle injury the last two weeks, and the injury could have worsened in the loss to the Cowboys.

Minnesota's defense, with the exception of Sharrif Floyd not playing all season, has been relatively unharmed by the injury bug, unlike the offense which has lost about half of its starters.

We'll keep you posted when we learn more.
