The Vikings got at least one returner back during Saturday’s practice.
Cordarrelle Patterson is questionable to play Monday night in Chicago after returning to practice on a limited basis. Patterson had been held out of practice Thursday and Friday due to a concussion.

Tight end MyCole Pruitt (knee) is officially questionable to return to game action on Monday. Receiver Jarius Wright (ankle) is also questionable to play.
Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee) will miss his sixth game of the season as he has not practiced since undergoing knee surgery Sept. 22.
