Vikings players are back at Winter Park today after a long weekend off. But safety Harrison Smith, outside linebacker Anthony Barr and nose tackle Linval Joseph still aren’t able to practice with the team.

All three defensive starters did not participate in the portion of today’s practice open to media. Neither did defensive end Scott Crichton.

Safety Andrew Sendejo and outside linebacker Brandon Watts were back in the mix today, though, and there were no new practice absentees following Thursday’s 23-20 loss to the Cardinals.

Coach Mike Zimmer has not provided a timetable for when Smith (hamstring and knee), Barr (groin) and Joseph (foot) will return.
