Vikings go with five receivers, but Wright not active

Posted by: Mark Craig under Vikings, NFC Updated: October 7, 2012 - 2:28 PM

The Vikings are going with five receivers, but once again, rookie fourth-round pick Jarius Wright will be watching from the sideline in street clothes.

Wright's ankle has long healed, but he's just not ready to help out at this point. So Stephen Burton will be active today.

The other inactives for the Vikings are: QB Bethel-Thompson, S Sendejo, S Raymond, LB Mitchell, G Asper and DE Reed. Sendejo and Raymond are out with ankle injuries. Mitchell has a calf strain.
