Minnesota Vikings’ Ryan Suter on his playoff fate

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Ryan Sutter’s playoff fate is up in the air.

The team has been in the playoff hunt since its NFC title game loss to the Atlanta Falcons in December.

Minnesota had a bye week and a chance to get back in the race in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers, but Sutter was ruled out by an undisclosed injury.

Suter has thrown three touchdown passes in five playoff games, including one in the final regular-season game against the Chicago Bears.

The Vikings are 7-6 and have a shot at a wild-card berth with three games left.

“It’s a little bit hard,” Suter said.

“If we can get that chemistry in, we’re going to be in great shape to make it through the playoffs.” “

Sutter will likely have to play in his first playoff game since Dec. 11, when the Vikings lost in overtime to the Kansas City Chiefs, the final playoff game of his NFL career. “

Sutter is averaging 38.2 points and 11.5 assists in his last four games.

“He’s a special player and one of the best quarterbacks in the league,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said.
