Backups Johnson, Hill move forward to fill quarterback void
The Vikings today placed quarterback Daunte Culpepper on injured reserve, officially ending his season, and promoted running back Adimchinobe Echemandu from the practice squad.

For now, the Vikings have decided not to sign a No. 3 quarterback to back up Brad Johnson and Shaun Hill. Culpepper will undergo surgery this month to repair three torn ligaments in his right knee.

The Vikings made one other move Tuesday, releasing wide receiver Jason Anderson from the practice squad and adding wide receiver Kelvin Kight to the practice squad.

Minnesota didn't immediately sign another quarterback and coach Mike Tice indicated Monday that the team might not do so right away - or perhaps even play the rest of the year with just two.

I like the Ech-man, I hope he gets some playing time.

I really liked him when I watched him in the preseason games.

I wonder if this means Moe is out this weekend?

I like him but I'd rather see Fason finally get his shot. I still think Tice is a HUGE idiot for not giving Fason a shot yet... that is if Fason is able to play. I haven't heard anything on him but far as I know he's healthy. Plus, we spent a 3rd round pick on this guy and he doesn't have any carries this season if I'm not mistaken.

I really like echamandoo or whatever his name is. Im also a big fan of Fason and I really wanna see what he can do in the NFL.

I think Echemandu did a great job this preseason, I thought him and Hoag really deserved to make the team. It's still a shame about C-Pep though.
