Mike Wallace said he has no doubt he’ll be ready to play Sunday against Kansas City. The Vikings’ banged up wide receiver returned to the field on Wednesday at Winter Park, though he wasn’t wearing pads and only stretched with the team.
After practice, he ran light drills with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and looked comfortable turning and accelerating on his left knee.
“It feels good. Really good. Extremely good,” Wallace said. “Just a little sore knee. … I felt good running around today. Everything should be back to normal tomorrow.”
Wallace said a helmet hit his knee while being tackled in the first quarter against Denver. He was able to play through the injury and finished the game with eight catches for 83 yards and a touchdown.
Starting wide receiver Charles Johnson (ribs) and safety Andrew Sendejo (knee) returned to practice Wednesday. Both were hurt in the Vikings’ 31-14 win over San Diego in Week 3 and missed Week 4 at Denver.
Defensive end Justin Trattou (foot), who was also injured against San Diego and missed Week 4 at Denver, didn’t practice. He was seen in the locker room wearing a boot on his left foot.
Wednesday’s injury report listed wide receiver Jarius Wright (hand) and cornerback Jabari Price (shoulder) as full participants in practice. Johnson and Sendejo were limited participants. Wallace and Trattou did not practice.
