Vikings' Brian O'Neill: Fine moving forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Neill (eye) was absent from Wednesday's injury report.

O'Neill exited this past Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers with an eye injury, but he'll return to action this week against the Bears. The 2018 second-round pick is slated to resume his typical duties at right tackle.

Vikings' Brian O'Neill: Dealing with eye injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Neill (eye) is questionable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers.

O'Neill's absence leaves Rashod Hill as the fill-in option at right tackle, a questionable proposition for Minnesota's sake given the matchup against Tampa Bay's powerful front seven. The 25-year-old had proven to be incredibly durable coming into Sunday, refusing to miss a single offensive snap over the first 13 weeks of the season.

Vikings' Brian O'Neill: Returning as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Neill (concussion) is set to retain his starting spot at right tackle for the Vikings in 2020, Eric Smith of the team's official site reports.

O'Neill started all 15 games he appeared in last season, though he did exit the playoff loss to the 49ers to be evaluated for a concussion. The 2018 second-round pick has started 26 of 30 games through his first two seasons and should continue protecting Kirk Cousins in 2020.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Neill exited Saturday's divisional-round loss to the 49ers to be evaluated for a possible concussion.

Vikings' Brian O'Neill: Deems himself ready
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Neill (arm) said he's ready to play in Sunday's game versus the Falcons, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

O'Neill suffered this arm injury in early August, and it kept him from working at full speed for most of training camp and the preseason. He's expected to start at right tackle again this year.

Vikings' Brian O'Neill: Limited at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Neill (arm) returned to Tuesday's practice in limited fashion, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

O'Neill has been managing an arm issue for about two weeks. The 23-year-old suited up for 15 games as a rookie in Minnesota last year, including 11 starts. Assuming full health come Week 1, he once again projects to start at right tackle. His return to practice, albeit limited, is a positive step for the Pittsburgh product.

Vikings' Brian O'Neill: Managing arm issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Neill sat out Wednesday's practice due to a right arm injury, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

O'Neill reportedly suffered the injury during practice Monday, and a timetable for his return remains undisclosed. The 2018 second-round pick appears on track for a starting job along Minnesota's offensive line when healthy, so the team is likely to take a cautious approach to his recovery.

Vikings' Brian O'Neill: Misses practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Neill was unable to participate in Tuesday's practice after suffering an apparent hand injury Monday, Chad Graff of The Athletic reports.

While blocking toward the end of Monday's practice, O'Neill appeared to get his hand caught, forcing him to watch the rest of practice from the sideline. The Pittsburgh product is expected to be a part of a revamped offensive line in Minnesota for 2019, so expect the team to be cautious with him. It's not likely a serious issue, but he'll certainly be monitored on a daily basis.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Neill isn't participating in the Vikings' OTAs, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

It isn't clear what sort of injury is causing O'Neill's absence, though the 2018 second-round pick did miss time with a concussion late in his rookie season.

Vikings' Brian O'Neill: Healthy to enter Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Neill (concussion) is absent from Wednesday's injury report.

It remains unclear whether O'Neill suffered a concussion during last Sunday's 24-17 win over the Packers, but his absence from Wednesday's injury report indicates that he's returned to full health either way. The second-round rookie is on track to start at right tackle against the Patriots in Week 13.

O'Neill left Sunday's game in the third quarter to be evaluated for a concussion, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

O'Neill started at right tackle Sunday and was eventually replaced by Rashod Hill. It's unclear if O'Neill suffered a concussion or not, but his practice status this week will shed some light on his availability for Week 13.
