Two starters — nose tackle Linval Joseph (foot) and strong safety Andrew Sendejo (knee) — missed all of today’s Vikings practice, according to the official injury report.
Two starters — linebacker Anthony Barr (hand/groin) and free safety Harrison Smith — were limited. Barr’s hand injury is weeks old, but the groin was a new addition to this week’s report.
Smith sounded after practice like he’ll be ready to go by Sunday. He was asked how he feels compared to last week.
“A lot better,” said Smith, who missed Sunday’s game in Atlanta. “I’m still not doing everything right now, but I’ll get some more action tomorrow and should have a pretty good idea by Friday.”
Meanwhile, two players — cornerback Trae Waynes (ankle) and safety Robert Blanton (ankle) — were on the injury with full practice participation. Waynes didn’t play on Sunday.
