The Vikings will go through their final practice of the week today at Winter Park before playing host to Miami on Sunday at Mall of America Field at the Metrodome.
We'll get a final injury report of the week that will give projections that include probable (virtual certainty that guy plays); questionable (50 percent chance of playing); doubtful (25 percent chance) and out.
The main question marks for the Vikings are cornerbacks Chris Cook (knee) and Cedric Griffin (knee) and defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy (knee). I could see all three sitting out for a second consecutive week. Cook and Griffin because the Vikings don't want to rush them back and Kennedy because he can probably use another week of conditioning after getting hurt in the second preseason game.
Percy Harvin did not practice on Thursday because of a bruised hip but there seems no real concern that he might have to sit out. Rather, it appears the Vikings gave him the day off from practice to make sure he did not aggravate the problem.
Left tackle Bryant McKinnie has a dislocated index finger and is going to be fitted with some type of splint for the game but he almost certainly will play.
The Dolphins are expected to be without defensive end Jared Odrick (leg) and linebacker Channing Crowder (groin).
