In case anyone thought the Vikings weren't already beat up enough, add middle linebacker E.J. Henderson as a surprise addition to the wounded.

Henderson missed today's practice because of a shoulder injury. Also missing practice, as expected, was running back Adrian Peterson (ankle). And, of course, cornerback Chris Cook remains in paid exile, defending felony charges while the walls fall down around his teammates.

Limited in practice were CB Asher Allen (shoulder), RG Anthony Herrera (knee) and TE Kyle Rudolph (quadriceps). Players on the injury report who had full participation in practice were SS Jamarca Sanford (shoulder), OLB Erin Henderson (hamstring) and TE Visanthe Shiancoe (hamstring).

If E.J. Henderson can't play, it's possible that Erin would move into the middle and Kenny Onatolu would play outside linebacker.
