Kluwe on injury report but practices

Posted by: Mark Craig under Injury report, Vikings, NFC, Adrian Peterson, Antoine Winfield, Chris Kluwe, Percy Harvin Updated: October 31, 2012 - 3:45 PM

Another piece to the Chris Kluwe story was unveiled when the Vikings released their injury report with Kluwe's name on it.

Kluwe has a knee injury, but not severe enough to keep him from having full participation in today's practice. But when a punter is on the injury report, that also helps explain why the team worked out free agent punters on Tuesday.

But the bottom line is Kluwe will be fine on Sunday.

Tight end John Carlson (concussion) did not practice. Also missing practice was linebacker Tyrone McKenzie, whose wife is having the couple's first child.

Limited in practice today were: RB Adrian Peterson (ankle), CB Antoine Winfield (knee), S Mistral Raymond (ankle) and WR Percy Harvin.

Christian Ponder is on the injury report again with a knee injury. But he also had full practice participation again.
