While there’s no work on whether Calvin Ridley is injured, nor on the extent of Mattison’s injury, what we do know is that both players missed time on Tuesday for undisclosed reasons.
Ridley was spotted walking off the field seemingly without any trouble, while Mattison was seen limping slightly at Vikings camp. For the time being, there’s no reason to hit the panic button on either player. As mentioned before, Ridley appeared to be in perfect health despite spending time off the field.
However, Mattison’s injury, even if it doesn’t sideline him come Week 1, could open the door for rookie RB DeWayne McBride to make an impression on Vikings HC Kevin O’Connell ahead of some of the first preseason action of the 2023 season.
