The Minnesota Vikings took another blow at cornerback as Andrew Booth Jr.’s knee injury suffered worse than expected.
He missed Thursday night’s game against the New England Patriots with knee pain, but that has worsened since he’s scheduled to have surgery on Monday.
#Vikings Second-round CB Andrew Booth will undergo knee surgery today, sources say, with a decision to be made during surgery as to which procedure is necessary. There’s a chance Booth will miss the rest of the season, but that won’t be apparent until after the surgery.

There are two things worth noting when it comes to Booth Jr. It is still unknown and will not be fully answered after surgery.
The second piece is that Booth Jr. had kneecap surgery when he was in high school and if it ends up in the same knee, it could become a bigger problem.
What we should expect now is to see Booth Jr. placed on injured reserve with cornerback Tay Gowan likely taking his spot on the active list. All we can do is hope for the best for Booth Jr.
