As expected, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (groin) didn't practice today. He's typically rested late in the season because, well, he's Adrian Peterson. He gets and gives enough punishment on game day.
Also missing practice were: CB Xavier Rhodes (concussion), WR Joe Webb (concussion), TE Kyle Rudolph (foot) and Josh Robinson (fractured sternum). Rudolph and Robinson are out. Rhodes and Webb passed the first part of the NFL's protocol for return from concussions. They took the exertion test today. If they're symptom-free on Thursday, they can return.
Meanwhile, DT Kevin Williams (quadriceps) was limited. RB Matt Asiata (shoulder), NT Fred Evans (knee), LB Chad Greenway (wrist) and FS Andrew Sendejo (foot) were on the injury report but had full practice participation.
For the Bears, QB Jay Cutler (ankle) and LB Lance Briggs (shoulder) are out. RB Matt Forte (knee), CB Derrick Martin (hamstring) and S Anthony Walters (groin) did not participate in today's practice.
