With Elflein Sidelined,Vikings Trade For Center Brett Jones

Minnesota Vikings center Pat Elflein will finish out the remainder of the preseason on the sideline.
Mike Zimmer said Pat Elflein will not practice this week ahead of the team's final preseason game on Thursday., but he does not think he's at risk of starting the season on the PUP list, which would require him to be there for the first six weeks before being activated (like Teddy Bridgewater was last season). Regarding when he expects to see him practice, "he's going to practice when hes ready to go. I don't know when that will be."
Hours after Zimmer updated reporters on Elflein's condition, the Vikings moved to address their depth on the offensive line, trading for Giants center Brett Jones from the New York Giants.
The Vikings sent a 2019 pick to New York for Jones, who appeared in 30 games for New York. He does have 12 starts at center.
Elflein underwent two surgeries in the offseason after fracturing his left ankle in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also injured his shoulder in Atlanta in December.
The 24-year-old has been limited to working out with trainers in the weight room and on a rehab field over the last month.
It's a situation the Vikings found themselves in with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in 2017, who started the regular season on the PUP list and was eventually moved to the active roster for Minnesota's Week 10 win in Washington.
Injuries have affected Minnesota's offensive line throughout the preseason. In addition to Elflein's prolonged absence, the Vikings lost left guard Easton for the season after he underwent surgery to repair a bulging disc in his neck. Right guard Mike Remmers saw his first preseason action against Seattle after injuring his left ankle during the team's fourth practice in training camp.
