The Minnesota Vikings are looking to get back to the postseason in 2022 but their fortunes already took a bit of a hit this week during training camp.

Minnesota Vikings tight end Irv Smith Jr. suffered another injury and will be sidelined for a while.

Smith Jr. suffered a thumb injury earlier this week in training camp and had to undergo surgery on Tuesday and his head coach Kevin O'Connell confirmed the news to the media.

He was just coming off of a season in which he missed the entire campaign due to surgery on his right knee.

The hope is that Smith Jr. will be able to return for the first week of the NFL season.

Minnesota is already thin at the position and may look to go out and find a replacement in the meantime to take extra snaps in the preseason and for some potential depth as the season progresses.

New Sculptures Added In Sioux Falls For Sculpture Walk - May 2021

The Sioux Falls SculptureWalk is known to be the largest outdoor exhibit that features sculptures year-round on Phillips Avenue and throughout other parts of the city. Well over 800 sculptures have been on display throughout the history of the Sioux Falls SculptureWalk.
If you've been walking around Downtown Sioux Falls the last couple of days, you've probably have noticed the latest editions to this year's Sioux Falls SculptureWalk. My friend Miranda and I sure enjoyed seeing the new sculptures!
Every year, we walk around to admire the new artwork in the city. It was just a coincidence we were in town when some new sculptures were unveiled!
Check out these exciting new additions to Downtown Sioux Falls!
