The Vikings made the move on Wednesday, three days after he was injured in a 31-3 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Herrera started every game for the Vikings this season and is the emotional leader of the offensive line. Herrera says he actually played about four or five more plays after he was hurt.

The Vikings called up Patrick Brown from the practice squad to replace Herrera. They also signed defensive back Cary Harris to the practice squad.
