Vikings part ways with head athletic trainer Uriah Myrie

Myrie had been with the Vikings since 2022

After just two years in Minnesota the Vikings have parted ways with head athletic trainer Uriah Myrie.

Myrie joined the Vikings' staff in 2022 as part of a sweeping overhaul at the conclusion of the Mike Zimmer/Rick Spielman era.

Myrie replaced longtime trainer Eric Sugarman, who had been with the Vikings for 16 years.

The Vikings said in a press release: "We appreciate Uriah's commitment and contributions to the organization and to Vikings players over the past two years. We wish him personal and professional success in the future."

ESPN's Kevin Seifert reported the departure was not a reaction to a plethora of injuries suffered by the team during the 2023 season.

Minnesota lost a number of key players to injuries throughout the season including QB Kirk Cousins (Achilles tear), Marcus Davenport (high ankle sprain), Justin Jefferson was lost for seven weeks with a hamstring injury, starting corner Byron Murphy Jr. missed the final three games because of hamstring and knee issues, starting right tackle Brian O'Neill missed three of the team's last four games because of an ankle issue.
