    Vikings' Richardson could be done for season

    NFL.com wire reports

    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (Nov. 15, 2006) -- Struggling on offense, the Minnesota Vikings have likely lost their fullback, Tony Richardson, for the rest of the season.

    Richardson played with a broken thumb Nov. 12 against Green Bay and then suffered a fracture in his forearm. The latest injury probably will keep Richardson out for six weeks, and there are only seven games left. That means there is a strong chance Richardson will be placed on injured reserve this week, coach Brad Childress said.

    A valuable, popular veteran who signed with Minnesota as a free agent this year after playing 11 seasons with Kansas City, Richardson has been an important part of the game plans because of his ability to block, catch the ball out of the backfield and even run it certain short-yardage situations.

    Reserve tight end Jeff Dugan will see some time in his place, and tight end Jimmy Kleinsasser is also a possibility. The Vikings were scanning the waiver wire for potential replacements, too.
