Minnesota Vikings left guard Nick Easton will need to undergo season-ending surgery after fracturing his right ankle in the first quarter of Saturday's 16-0 win over the Green Bay Packers, according to coach Mike Zimmer. Easton suffered the injury with 3:05 to play in the opening frame, during a play on which running back Latavius Murray picked up an 8-yard gain. Easton was tended to by trainers for several minutes and could not put any weight on his ankle as he was helped off the field. Saturday marked the first time since Oct. 9 that all five starting offensive linemen started a game together. Reserve guard Jeremiah Sirles filled in for Easton once he exited the game. Easton was one of a handful of Vikings injured on the night.
