Vikings K Blair Walsh (hamstring) was held out of Thursday's practice.
The injury is to Walsh's plant leg, and is the same issue he played through in Week 6. Barring a setback, he'll start Monday night's game against the Giants. Thu, Oct 17, 2013 04:52:00 PM

Vikings K Blair Walsh (hamstring) is active for Sunday's Week 6 game against the Panthers.

Walsh tweaked his non-kicking hammy in practice this week, but he's fine and a very solid fantasy kicking option. Walsh is 43-of-47 on field goals to start his NFL career.

Vikings K Blair Walsh was added to Thursday's injury report, getting in a limited session with a left (non-kicking) hamstring issue.

Walsh tweaked his leg in practice, but coach Leslie Frazier told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune he expects him to kick on Sunday against the Panthers. You can leave the game's best kicker penciled into your lineup.

Vikings K Blair Walsh is now 12-of-12 from 50+ yards out in his career.

Walsh banged a 54-yarder against the Steelers in London Sunday. He now holds the team record for most field goals of 50+ yards in his career despite playing in just 20 games. Walsh will be a fine fantasy kicking option when the Vikings come out of their bye against the Panthers in Week 6.

Vikings rookie K Blair Walsh has set an NFL record by going 9-of-9 on field goals from 50 yards or longer this season.

Fellow rookie Greg "Legatron" Zuerlein has gotten the publicity this year, but Walsh has been better. He hit from a career-long 56 yards out in Sunday's win over the Texans and is now 32-of-35 on the season overall. Zuerlein is "just" 7-of-12 from 50-plus and 21-of-28 overall.

Vikings K Blair Walsh has tied an NFL record with eight field goals of 50-plus yards in a single season.

Walsh joins Morten Anderson (1995) and Jason Hanson (2008) in the record book. He went 3-for-3 from 50-plus in Sunday's win over the Rams and is now 8-for-8 from that distance on the season. Still, the sixth-round will be a shaky fantasy play in Week 16 as the Vikings figure to have trouble moving the ball in Houston.

The Vikings don't plan to sign competition for rookie K Blair Walsh.

"Right now we don’t plan on bringing another leg," coach Leslie Frazier said. Walsh converted just 21-of-35 field-goal attempts for the University of Georgia last season, but the Vikings envision him as their kicker of the future. Despite his apparent job security, Walsh is well off the radar in fantasy leagues.

Vikings selected Georgia K Blair Walsh with the No. 175 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Ryan Longwell has three years left on his contract, but he converted just 78.6 percent of his field goals in 2011 and is 37. He also no longer handles kickoffs and barely has any range from 50-plus yards out. Still, it's a confusing pick as the Vikings have tons of holes and Walsh missed 14 of the 35 field goals he attempted as a senior last season.
