|Rashod Hill might not take part in the joint practices with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Minnesota Vikings this week because of a minor injury. Perhaps Braden Holtby Jersey , then, he'll have a brief moment to reflect on his progressing career, considering the presence on the same field of his former and current team. An undrafted practice squad player with the Jaguars just two years ago, Hill has become a key cog on a championship contender as the front runner at right tackle.
Standing 6-foot-6 with a mobile 315-pound frame sure helps, but he never would have made it this far without the willingness to learn and a determination to work that helped give the Vikings confidence Hill can be a quality NFL starter.
"He's an extremely athletic guy that has been getting better and better," coach Mike Zimmer said. "Sometimes later in the game his concentration leaves him a little bit, so that's where we'll have to extend him more plays so he gets used to doing those things. He's done a really nice job. He's moving well in the running game. When he sets good in the passing game, he's really hard to get around. He's done some good things."
Zimmer made those comments on Monday, before Hill rolled his ankle in practice in a tangle with nose tackle Linval Joseph and was taken away on a cart. Hill returned to the field that afternoon and said afterward the injury was not a concern, but he was held out on Tuesday.
The Jaguars Wayne Gretzky Jersey , who signed Hill out of Southern Mississippi in 2016, join the Vikings for practices on Wednesday and Thursday before their exhibition game at U.S. Bank Stadium on Saturday.
"I'm looking forward to seeing them," Hill said.
The Jaguars were second in the league with 55 sacks last season and second behind the Vikings in both fewest yards and points allowed, so they'll provide a valuable test for the work-in-progress Vikings offensive line this week. The challenge will not include defensive end Dante Fowler, the third overall pick in the 2015 draft, because he's being kept home as punishment for fighting with fellow defensive end Yannick Ngakoue .
"Guys just bought into the program, and I knew they were going to take off," Hill said, assessing the Jaguars defense.
Hill, who was on the practice squad with the Jaguars when the Vikings signed him away a little more than halfway through the 2016 season Mason Crosby Jersey , started seven games last year including both matchups in the playoffs.
The Vikings are down both starting guards from 2017, with Joe Berger retired and Nick Easton sidelined by a likely season-ending neck injury, so they moved right tackle Mike Remmers to right guard. There's an obvious need on the interior, but the Vikings surely wouldn't have switched Remmers if they weren't sold on Hill's ability to man that critical position.
Hill already had a setback earlier in training camp with a sudden stomach illness that kept him out of action for a few days, but he said he has gained back all the weight he lost and started practice on Monday at 317 pounds, in the range of his ideal size.
"We're just happy he's back and feeling better," offensive coordinator John DeFilippo said last week. "You'll see his stamina continue to grow as we go along."
Taraji P. Henson says it was literally love at first sight when she met her new fiance. The ”Empire” star became engaged to her boyfriend, former Super Bowl star Kelvin Hayden, on Mother’s Day.
”I knew he was gonna pop the question because he all but told me himself. I just didn’t know when. That surprised me. He just did it,” Henson said Monday as she attended an annual event where Fox promotes its new TV lineup to advertisers.
The actress said she was introduced to Hayden by her makeup artist three years ago.
”She was like Authentic Carl Gunnarsson Jersey , `You need to go out. You need to meet somebody. You’re too fly. You’re too amazing.’ I was like, `I don’t know.’ She’s like, `You’re not gonna meet him at home. You need to go out.”’
The makeup artist arranged a party full of eligible bachelors for Henson to mingle with, but the star demanded to see photos first, and became enamored with Hayden.
”I was like, `Wow, something about his eyes are so gentle.’ And you know how they say you can fall in love at first sight from a picture? That’s exactly what happened,” she recalled. ”So when we got to the actual event, I met everybody, I shook all the other guys’ hands and I literally was looking for him and when he walked up to where I was it was like people parted like the Red Sea Youth Dustin Byfuglien Jersey , a light came on, I heard angels and he reached out to shake my hand and we danced and we talked and we were hanging out every day since.”
Hayden played for the Atlanta Falcons, Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts. He won a Super Bowl for that team in 2007.
Henson says her ”Empire” co-stars are thrilled with the news.
”Jussie (Smollett) came down to my room and screamed and did backflips,” she said.
Terence Howard says Hayden must be special for Henson to choose to be with him.
”I’ve never known any person that she’s worked with that’s ever been able to go on a date with her, you know,” Howard said. ”She’s that secure about maintaining her integrity, so for her to let Kelvin in, I’m like, `Wow. That’s a big move. That’s a big move right there for her.”’
