Vikings left tackle Matt Kalil had another rough day Sunday. His three penalties cost his team 58 critical yards in their 24-21 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Worse yet, there were unconfirmed reports he got into an altercation with a heckler after the game outside of TCF Bank Stadium.

The Packers played at TCF Bank Stadium for the first time Sunday, and it was an odd experience, according to linebacker Clay Matthews.
Right tackle Phil Loadholt is out for the rest of the season, according to an NFL.com report. Loadholt tore a pectoral muscle in the fourth quarter of Sundayâs 24-21 loss to the Packers. He was replaced by backup offensive tackle Mike Harris and did not return to the game. Loadholt is the second Vikings offensive lineman to be lost to a torn pectoral muscle this season. Right guard Brandon Fusco suffered a similar season-ending injury back in Week 3. Loadholt, 2009 second-round pick, is in his sixth season with the Vikings. Loadholt has struggled in pass protection this season, allowing five sacks and 33 total pressures, according to Pro Football Focus. But he was solid as a run blocker again. We will get a chance to ask head coach Mike Zimmer for more on Loadholtâs injury at 2 p.m.
