Vikings offensive lineman Nick Easton had an MRI and other medical tests to determine what’s causing his neck pain, according to Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. Dr. Jack Kelley, an orthopedic specialist in New Haven, Connecticut, is reviewing the results and is expected to provide a diagnosis this week.
Easton began experiencing discomfort in his neck after Friday’s practice and has not practiced since.
Easton started at left guard last season. The Vikings moved him to center in Pat Elflein‘s absence. Elflein remains on the physically unable to perform list with ankle and shoulder injuries.
