KEYS TO THE GAME
Vikings: CB Asher Allen (concussion) did not practice for the second day in a row Thursday, and it appears doubtful he will play Sunday. Allen likely would be replaced as the starting right corner by rookie Chris Cook. ... S Jamarca Sanford did not practice Wednesday or Thursday after injuring his hamstring Sunday against Arizona. ... Favre returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday after sitting out for the third Wednesday in a row, as he rested the stress fracture in his left ankle and fracture in his left heel. It's likely Favre will take Wednesdays off on a regular basis in order to give him three days of rest after games. ... OT Phil Loadholt (knee) was limited Wednesday and Thursday but likely will start Sunday. ... DT Pat Williams continues to battle an elbow issue that limited him in practice Wednesday and Thursday. ... DE Everson Griffen was listed with a shoulder injury but did not miss any of practice Wednesday or Thursday. ... CB Lito Sheppard remains on the injury report because of a hand injury but did not miss any of practice Wednesday or Thursday. ... CB Frank Walker remains on the injury report because of a hamstring injury but did not miss any of practice Wednesday or Thursday.
