Vikings LG Alex Boone (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 9 against the Lions.

Boone is also listed with shoulder and knee issues, but the concussion he suffered last week against the Bears is what kept him out all week. Jeremiah Sirles will get the start at left guard for an offensive line which seems to be getting worse every game.

Vikings LG Alex Boone exited Week 8 against the Bears to be evaluated for a concussion.

He was later officially diagnosed. The Vikings' big-money addition on offense as a free agent, Boone has been injured and ineffective the first half of the season. This offensive line is the worst in football. Jeremiah Sirles replaced Boone in the lineup.

Vikings LG Alex Boone (hip) expects to play Monday night.

Boone was noncommittal on his status early in the week. He's been removed from the injury report after practicing fully Saturday. Boone's run blocking is down this year, but he's mostly held up in pass protection.

Vikings LG Alex Boone (hip) practiced again on Saturday.

Boone did not finish Week 3 because of a hip injury, but he has now practiced two days in a row. He will likely be listed as limited again, but he is on track to play Monday night.

Vikings LG Alex Boone (hip) "should be OK" for Week 4.

Boone was knocked out after 19 snaps Sunday, but his MRI came back clean. Boone is hardly an impact player, but the Vikings' shaky line can't afford any more injuries.

Vikings LG Alex Boone was forced from Sunday's game against the Panthers with a hip injury.

Boone was listed as "questionable" in the first half, but remained absent after the break. Jeremiah Sirles will finish the game at left guard. It's a huge concern for an already gutted line.

Vikings agreed to terms with OG Alex Boone, formerly of the 49ers, on a four-year, $26.8 million contract.

It's an indication the Vikings expect to lose free agent Mike Harris. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports Boone will slide in at left guard, kicking Brandon Fusco back to the right side. A starter in San Francisco each of the past four seasons, Boone has fallen off since a monster 2012, but is still better than replacement-level. Going on 29, he's also reasonably durable.

The Dolphins have had "conversations" with free agent OG Alex Boone.

When Kelechi Osemele signs his apparently imminent deal with the Raiders, Boone will move to the top of this year's free agent guard market. Ex-49ers OL coach Chris Foerster is now the Dolphins' offensive line coach, so dots connect here. Offensive guard is arguably the biggest weakness on Miami's roster.

The Miami Herald reports free agent OG Alex Boone "would have interest" in the Dolphins.

The Dolphins are desperate to improve their guard play, and Boone is a more realistic option than someone like Kelechi Osemele, who is primed for a massive payday. Boone is still one of the market's top guards, however, and should draw plenty of interest. The New Orleans Times-Picayune considers him a fit for the Saints. Boone turns 29 in May.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune considers free agent RG Alex Boone a fit for the Saints.

Guard is a top priority for the Saints after they averaged 3.8 YPC last year. Restricted free agent Tim Lelito should return, but Boone is a candidate to replace Jahri Evans. The Saints have also been linked to free agents Ramon Foster, Brandon Brooks, and Evan Mathis.

49ers placed RG Alex Boone (knee) on season-ending injured reserve.

Boone has been out since Week 14 with a torn MCL. An impending free agent, he'll be one of the top interior linemen on the open market. Marcus Martin will close out the season at right guard.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports 49ers RG Alex Boone is likely done for the season with a "slight" MCL tear.

Cole insists Boone's injury is not "serious," but it's enough to keep him out for the final three regular season games. An impending free agent, 28-year-old Boone will be one of the hottest names on the open market this spring.

49ers LG Alex Boone exited Week 14 against the Browns with a right knee injury.

Boone originally had his leg rolled up in the first half, but he was knocked out for good after getting the same leg rolled up on the opening series of the second half. He is headed for an MRI Monday. Marcus Martin moved over from center to replace Boone with Daniel Kilgore entering the game at the pivot. Martin has been a disaster all season.

The 49ers have moved Alex Boone from right guard to left guard.

He'll be counted on to replace Mike Iupati, who signed a monster deal with Arizona in free agency. The 49ers' left side is set, with Joe Staley at left tackle and Boone at left guard. Center, right guard, and right tackle are all question marks as the 49ers deal with the losses of Iupati and Anthony Davis.
