Vikings lose OT Phil Loadholt for the season with Achilles tear

The Minnesota Vikings took a huge blow to their offensive line yesterday when starting right tackle Phil Loadholt was carted off the field with an apparent leg/foot injury. 

Ben Goessling of ESPN, citing a league source, reports that an MRI confirmed Vikings RT Phil Loadholt sustained a torn Achilles and will be out for the entire 2015 season.

This is a huge blow for the Vikings, but remember they draft T.J. Clemmings in the 4th round.
