Outside linebacker Anthony Barr (groin), safety Harrison Smith (knee and hamstring) and nose tackle Linval Joseph (toe) all practiced today. It was on a limited basis, but it is still an encouraging sign for that banged-up trio as they try to get cleared to play Sunday night.

Defensive end Everson Griffen (shoulder) also practiced on a limited basis.

Running back Adrian Peterson, meanwhile, did not practice due to the ankle injury he suffered against the Bears. But he said earlier today that he is confident he will play Sunday night against the Giants.

Cornerback Josh Robinson has a concussion and did not practice today. Tight end Rhett Ellison sat out with an ankle injury.

Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd was not spotted during the portion of practice open to media, but he was listed as limited with a non-injury designation.

Wide receiver Charles Johnson was listed as a full participant after sitting out the win over the Bears with an ankle injury.
