On Tuesday the Vikings officially placed T Phil Loadholt on injured reserve due to the Achilles injury he suffered in the win over Tampa Bay on Saturday. The club also announced the signing of T Stephen Goodin.
Goodin signed with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent following the 2012 NFL Draft. The Hastings, Neb., native competed collegiately at the NCAA Division II institute, Nebraska-Kearney, where he was a three-year starter for the Lopers. Goodin appeared in one game for the Giants during the 2013 campaign before spending the 2014 preseason with the Dallas Cowboys.
