Vikings Place G Steve Hutchinson on IR

The Minnesota Vikings have placed perennial Pro Bowl guard Steve Hutchinson on injured reserve, reports Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune.

Hutchinson was scheduled to miss a third straight game on Monday night with a broken thumb.

A first-round pick (17th overall) out of Michigan by the Seattle Seahawks in 2001, the seven-time Pro Bowler and member of the NFL's All-Decade Team for the 200s has started all 143 games he's been active during his 10-year career.

Hutchinson missed the final 12 games of the 2002 season with a broken leg.

Rookie quarterback R.J. Archer has been signed off the practice squad to replace Hutchinson on the 53-man roster.
