    The Vikings have received a bit of good news on the severity of Mistral Raymond's ankle injury. At this afternoon's press conference at Winter Park, head coach Leslie Frazier revealed that an x-ray on Raymond's right ankle did not reveal a fracture. Frazier still called the injury "significant" noting that Raymond suffered a severe bone bruise and what is believed to be a subluxation (dislocation) of the ankle.

    The initial fears were that Raymond might need surgery and be lost for the season but that is not the case.

    "It doesn't look like we're going to have to put him on [injured reserve]," Frazier said. "But he will miss some time. For sure. But no high ankle sprain. So just good news all the way around. It looked as if might be something that may require surgery. That's not going to be the case."

    Frazier said that Raymond will need to see a specialist for further examination before the Vikings can get a concrete determination on the minimum amount of time Raymond will be out.
