No decision yet on Vikings venue for Monday night

Posted by: under Vikings, Bears, Vikings off the field Updated: December 14, 2010 - 3:43 PM

The Vikings issued a press release that essentially said no decision has been made on where their Monday night game against the Chicago Bears will be held.

The University of Minnesota is getting TCF Bank Stadium game ready in the event that the Metrodome roof cannot be fixed in time for Monday's game.

The Gophers are in the process of removing snow and turning on water to the stadium. The Vikings and the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission are trying to determine whether the roof, which collapsed Sunday morning, can be repaired in time to host the game.

The Vikings have said the game will remain in Minnesota -- either at the Dome or TCF Bank Stadium -- after playing a "home" game against the New York Giants in Detroit on Monday night.

The Vikings did not announce a deadline for when a decision has to be made this week.
