Simpson has signed with the Vikes.||||||| The team announced the deal Wednesday, the day after NFL free agency began.
Posted Oct. 17, 2012
Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said he expects wide receiver Jerome Simpson to play this week. Simpson wasn't active for last week's game against Washington due to a back issue that caused numbness in one of his legs and limited him the previous week.||||||| Simpson says every time he is deactivated from a game it costs him $60,000 in bonus money. The Vikings built that clause into his contract because the former Cincinnati Bengal was coming off a drug arrest which eventually resulted in a three-game suspension to start the season.

Simpson is out Sunday with a back problem that causes weakness and numbness in his lower left leg.||||||| Simpson has four receptions for 50 yards.

Simpson doesn't need surgery for the back problem that caused weakness and numbness in his lower left leg, and the Vikings expect him to play Sunday at Washington.||||||| Coach Leslie Frazier said Wednesday that Simpson will be held out of practice as a precaution but could be cleared for action by Thursday or Friday. Frazier said "all indications are" that Simpson will be fine to face the Redskins and has improved since waking up the morning of last Sunday's game against Tennessee with the strange, sudden injury.
Posted Oct. 08, 2012
The Minnesota Vikings are trying to determine why Simpson woke up with numbness and weakness in his lower left leg before Sunday's game against Tennessee.||||||| Coach Leslie Frazier said Simpson was undergoing MRI tests on Monday. Simpson played in parts of Minnesota's 30-7 win, but he didn't catch any passes. He had trouble pushing off because of the injury, which Frazier said could also be connected to his back. Frazier said Simpson was "alarmed" by his condition but that the Vikings don't believe he's facing a long-term absence.
