The Vikings got two starters back at practice on Wednesday.
Linebacker Eric Kendricks and guard Alex Boone were listed as full participants in their returns to practice. Both players are in position to return this weekend against Washington after they were held out of the overtime loss to the Lions due to concussions.
Four players did not practice in nose tackle Linval Joseph, cornerback Captain Munnerlyn, cornerback Marcus Sherels and defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd.
Joseph (shoulder) missed his first practice after remaining relatively healthy through the Vikings’ first half of the season.
Munnerlyn is dealing with a sprained ankle after playing just six snaps against the Lions. Sherels is also recovering from an ankle injury suffered on Sunday.
Floyd has not practiced since his Sept. 22 knee surgery.
Guard Zac Kerin, who has been held out for a few weeks with a busted right hand, was able to return to practice Wednesday on a limited basis.
Seven Vikings players are dealing with nagging injuries, but were able to fully practice on Wednesday: Boone, Kendricks, Jerick McKinnon (ankle), Ronnie Hillman (heel), Anthony Barr (ankle), Andrew Sendejo (ankle) and Audie Cole (hand).
