In an odd twist to yesterday’s good news, former Kentucky running back Derrick Locke was released by the Vikings today after failing his physical. Locke, who was projected as high as a third round pick by some services in the 2011 NFL Draft, went undrafted after teams became concerned with a neck injury. No word yet as to why Locke failed the physical, but that would seem to be the logical assumption. Tough break for the young man. Hopefull he’ll catch on with someone else before the season starts.
