Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said PK Blair Walsh is expected to play Week 6 even though he left practice early Thursday, Oct. 10, after injuring his hamstring.
Huddle Up: The injury is to Walsh's plant leg, but all indications are it's not serious enough to jeopardize his participation in this weekend's game.

Minnesota Vikings PK Blair Walsh has been named NFC Special Teams Player of the Month for December.
Huddle Up: Walsh made a league-high 35 field goals this season with only 3 misses. He was particularly deadly from long-range, hitting a single-season record 10 kicks -- with no misses -- from 50 yards or longer, and needs to be one of the first kickers drafted next season.

Minnesota Vikings PK Blair Walsh surpassed 107 points on the season with his 38-yard field goal in Week 15, which moved him past former WR Randy Moss for the 14-year-old franchise rookie record for scoring. Walsh also hit three 50-plus yard field goals in the game, which made him the first kicker in team history to kick eight field goals of at least 50 yards in a single season since former PKs Morten Anderson (1995) and Jason Hanson (2008).
Huddle Up: The 2012 rookie class has exploded onto the fantasy scene, including Walsh, who ranks sixth among all fantasy kickers with 117 points (Huddle Performance scoring). If he's somehow still available in your league, and you have any doubt about your PK, swoop up Walsh ASAP.
