Breeland earlier today was listed as questionable for Monday’s game in Chicago after failing to appear all week on the injury report, and head coach Mike Zimmer said it was for reasons unrelated to injury.

Shortly before the Vikings announced that they had given up on Breeland, he tweeted: “Wow.”

Breeland has struggled this season after signing a one-year, $ 3 million contract in June, and was ranked No. 117 out of 119 NFL cornerbacks by Pro Football Focus. He will be replaced in the starting XI against the Bears by Cameron Dantzler.

A source said the Vikings made the decision to let Breeland go after an altercation in practice on Saturday. NFL Media provided some details of the altercation, reporting that Breeland “had a verbal altercation … with coaches, took off his crampons and entered it with several teammates trying to calm the situation down.”

Breeland has also had a few incidents off the field this season. After the Vikings defeated Detroit 19-17 on October 10, he sent an obscene tweet which was later deleted.

On October 6, Hennepin County court records show that a civil lawsuit was brought against Breeland for $ 15,070 by two residents of a different unit of his Minneapolis apartment complex for allegedly “continually” smoking marijuana against the resort’s no-smoking rules.

“(Breeland) and his many guests smoked cannabis in violation of the no-smoking rider to be signed as part of the lease agreement for all tenants of The Nic on Fifth apartments,” the lawsuit alleges. “Regarding reports and beliefs, the management of The Nic on Fifth refused to disturb the accused solely because he is a football player for the Minnesota Vikings.”

A hearing on the case has been set for January 11.

A message left with a Viking official was not immediately returned. A message left with Bashaud’s agent Brad Leshnock was also not immediately returned.

Vikings cornerback Kris Boyd has received a lot of criticism for his provocative penalty against Pittsburgh. Now he has received a blow in his wallet.

A source said on Saturday that Boyd was fined $ 4,874 by the NFL for unsportsmanlike conduct for the offense in Minnesota’s 36-28 win on Dec. 9.

The penalty came with the Vikings leading 29-0 at the end of the third quarter and the Steelers facing the second and 10 at Minnesota 35. Boyd tackled James Washington for a two-yard loss on a reception, but the penalty instead went on. given the Steelers the first and 10-22.

The Steelers quickly scored their first touchdown and later had the chance to force overtime before being stopped at Minnesota 12 in the last game of the game.

The Vikings said on Saturday wide receiver Adam Thielen was questionable for Monday night’s game in Chicago.
