Turns out Zombo is hurt again and Lattimore won’t be active Sunday either. That opens up a spot for OLB Vic So’oto Sunday. Read here from Tyler Dunne at jsonline.
As Dunne points out So’oto was absolutely dominant against KC in the final preseason game. What Dunne does NOT point out is that KC played their offensive starters for most of the game (foolishly). So’oto’s dominance was against a starting offensive unit that was very solid last year. But the KC game wasn’t his only active game in the preseason – he was pretty good in some of the others as well. The guy has moves on the outside to get home to the QB. If he’s truly healthy now, I say give him a few opportunities to bring the heat on passing downs. He’s likely not on Minnesota’s radar. They probably don’t even have film on the guy.
He’s becoming my new Desmond Bishop. You’ll see why if he gets in there.
