We hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas. We're back at Winter Park where the Vikings have an 11:30 a.m. practice.
One thing that hasn't got much attention this week because of the Favre-Childress story and holiday is the Vikings are fairly healthy. Only four players were on the injury report on Thursday, down from more than a dozen last week.
No Vikings player has missed an entire practice this week so far. That's especially encouraging news for the wide receiver group.
Rookie Percy Harvin is no longer on the injury report because of his migraines. Harvin visited the Mayo Clinic earlier this week and said he and the doctors came up with a "great plan" for dealing with his migraines in the future.
Also, Bernard Berrian is not on the report for the first time in a long time after dealing with a hamstring injury almost the entire season. That injury has affected Berrian's ability to get separation on vertical routes and been a source of frustration for him all season.
We get the full injury report in a few hours so check back for those updates.
Update: The only player we did not see as practice got underway Saturday was running back Ian Johnson, who is a member of the practice squad. Everyone else was on the field. Tyrell Johnson was getting first-team reps at strong safety. Johnson struggled last Sunday at Carolina.
