Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd missed 15 of the team's 16 games last season and 20 of the team's last 48 games due to injuries and that has drawn frustration and confusion from both coaches and fans.
With the NFL Draft coming up, many analysts believe the Vikings will draft an insurance policy for Floyd and pick a defensive tackle with one of their eight selections. All of this speculation, likely paired with Floyd's seeming inability to get healthy, seems to have taken its toll on the fifth-year pro as he took to Instagram to post a somewhat ominous post.
It's hard to tell exactly the message that Floyd is trying to convey other than his desire to get healthy. Perhaps this means that Floyd's injury is worse than even he originally believed or perhaps he is simply voicing his desire to get healthy and play football again, it's hard to tell.
Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer has reiterated his faith in Floyd saying that, when healthy, the former Florida Gator is a big part of the team's defense and he can really make an impact. The being healthy part has been the problem.
