Vikings trade for Josh Dobbs; will Falcons see him Week 9?

NFL: OCT 15 Cardinals at Rams

Ahead of their Week 9 tilt against the Falcons, the Vikings found themselves in an unfamiliar place — without a quarterback. Kirk Cousins has been a mainstay in Minnesota since 2018 but tore his Achilles against the Packers. For the second week in a row, the Falcons would draw an opponent without their starting quarterback.

Last week against the Titans, Atlanta drew Will Levis making his NFL debut. The second-round pick led Tennessee to an improbable victory, so the Falcons cannot overlook whoever is under center for the Vikings this Sunday. Minnesota has two options — Jaren Hall and Josh Dobbs, who was just acquired via trade from the Cardinals.


UPDATE: Adam Schefter reports the plan is to start Jaren Hall vs. the Falcons
