Vikings | Jerome Simpson hindered by injury

Minnesota Vikings WR Jerome Simpson (back) is still being bothered by a disc injury in his back, according to head coach Leslie Frazier. Simpson has been a big disappointment with only 15 catches for 176 yards and no touchdowns in nine games this year. He hasn't had more than three catches in any game. "You can't get around the injury," Frazier said. "It definitely has had an effect on his play. We're doing the best we can, he's doing the best he can and that play he made on the slant in (last Sunday's) game in the fourth quarter, that was a big play for us. We're going to need him to make some plays for us this Sunday. Give us whatever he can." Simpson's speed has been affected, as well as his ability to cut and plant during his routes. He has yet to be told that he'll need offseason surgery, though.
