Left tackle Matt Kalil was the only Vikings player who didn’t practice today. He is dealing with a toe injury, per today’s injury report.
Defensive tackle Tom Johnson, who has made four starts in a row, has a concussion and was limited in practice. He was not out there for the start of the practice. But, helmet in hand, he joined his teammates in positional drills not long after the team stretch wrapped up.
Middle linebacker Eric Kendricks practiced again and was listed as a full participant. Kendricks has missed the past two games with an injury to his ribs. He got in a limited practice last Friday but didn’t play against the Raiders. Coach Mike Zimmer said today he is optimistic about Kendricks’ chances of playing this week, but he also said that last week. Still, it’s obviously a good sign that Kendricks was a full-go on Wednesday.
Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has a left shoulder injury — that’s his non-throwing arm, of course — but he was listed as a full participant. Running back Adrian Peterson was limited with a hamstring injury.
So was running back Matt Asiata (quadriceps), defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee and ankle) and outside linebacker Anthony Barr (hand and knee).
Cornerback Marcus Sherels (shoulder) and defensive end Justin Trattou (foot) were listed as full participants today.
