Culpepper's knee seals Vikings's fate
ESPN is reporting Vikings QB Daunte Culpepper has a torn ACL, MCL and PCL in his right knee ending his season. Culpepper was running for an 18-yard gain in Sunday's loss to Carolina when cornerback Chris Gamble came in from the side and tackled Culpepper's leg. Tice noted the team must now rally around back-up Brad Johnson. "Brad doesn't have the same arm Daunte has," Tice stated, "[but] Brad has played a lot more games than Daunte has. We can make up for the different styles by going to more short passing to give ourselves a chance to suit his style. Brad is a very good quarterback, he's won a Super Bowl. We have faith in Brad."
