Less than 24 hours of rest didn’t help the banged up Vikings. Safety Harrison Smith (hamstring), linebacker Anthony Barr (groin) and nose tackle Linval Joseph (foot) weren’t practicing in the open portion to media on Monday evening at Winter Park.

Also no practicing were safeties Anton Exum Jr. and Robert Blanton, and linebacker Brandon Watts.

Sendejo and Blanton were present during team warmups, but did not participate.

The short week forced the Vikings back onto the field the day after their 38-7 loss to Seattle and gives them only three days to recover from any injuries. We’ll have more details once the injury report is released after practice.
