Minnesota Vikings offensive tackle Oli Udoh sustained a season-ending torn quadriceps tendon in Thursday night's 34-28 loss to the host Philadelphia Eagles.

Udoh, 26, started at left tackle on Thursday after starter Christian Darrisaw aggravated an ankle injury during warmups and was a late scratch.

Udoh was a sixth-round draft choice in 2019 by Minnesota and has played in 43 games (18 starts). He was the Vikings' starting right guard in 2021.

David Quessenberry finished Thursday's game as Minnesota's left tackle.

Vikings coach Kevin O'Connell said Friday that the club is hopeful that Darrisaw will be ready for the Sept. 24 home contest against the Los Angeles Chargers.
