According to Luke Braun of Locked On Vikings, Minnesota Vikings S Lewis Cine injured his arm/shoulder in practice Saturday going for an interception and was attended to by trainers.
Fantasy Impact: Cine is a second-year safety out of Georgia who played just three games in 2022 before ending his season on the injured reserve. The Vikings had a lot of turnover in the secondary over the offseason with the departures of Patrick Peterson, Chandon Sullivan and Duke Shelley – who all ranked top six on the team in defensive back snaps played last season. With the change in guard, consistency and health are needed for 2023 when Brian Flores takes over as defensive coordinator. Cine only played two snaps on defense in 2022 and his assistance will be needed to provide rotational depth at safety as Harrison Smith and Camryn Bynum played a combined 2,074 snaps last season. His situation should be monitored.
