Waiting on Berrian status
By Kevin Seifert

CLEVELAND -- Sign of the (economic) times: I saw a number of No. 10 Cleveland jerseys as I made my way to the stadium Sunday morning. Most of them said “Quinn” on the back. But I spotted one that said “Zeier.” (Last/only year for Eric Zeier in Cleveland: 1995.)
I’m perched here in the press box looking for signs of Minnesota receiver Bernard Berrian, who hasn’t been seen (on the field) since straining his hamstring in the Aug. 14 preseason opener at Indianapolis. So far, I haven’t seen him. In fact, one of the few Vikings players on the field is center John Sullivan, who is no doubt putting in last-minute preparations for matching up against Cleveland defensive tackle/monster Shaun Rogers.
The Vikings are required to report Berrian’s status at 11:30 a.m. ET. I’ll bring it to you as quickly after that as I can.
