Peterson questionable; full injury report

In addition Brett Favre being listed as doubtful with a concussion, running back Adrian Peterson is questionable with his bruised knee/thigh.

"He had limited participation and was able to do some things. I feel good about the fact that, I think he'll probably make it," interim Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said about Peterson. "We'll have to see how he feels tomorrow, but it seems like we're heading in the right direction."

Besides those two, safety Madieu Williams is questionable with a concussion, and safety Jamarca Sanford (concussion) and cornerback Frank Walker (hamstring) are listed as probable.

The Eagles listed LB Stewart Bradley out and LB Keenan Clayton (hamstring) as doubtful. DT Mike Patterson (knee) is questionable. All other Eagles are probable, meaning there is a "virtual certainty" they will play.

Frazier says Favre unlikely to play

Interim Vikings coach Leslie Frazier is done listing Brett Favre as "out" on the injury report after the comeback Favre made with a sprained shoulder last weekend going into Monday night's game, but Favre isn't likely to play Sunday night in Philadelphia.

Favre hasn't passed his concussion test yet this week after suffering one on Monday night.

"He wasn't able to do anything today," Frazier said.

Favre will travel with the team even if he won't play so he can be on the sidelines and help backup Joe Webb try to navigate an aggressive Eagles defense.

Frazier said Favre will likely take the concussion test again on Saturday, but …

"There are other things besides just passing the test, so he wouldn't be able to make it," Frazier said.

Running back Adrian Peterson, who was held out of his first game since 2007 on Monday night with a bruised thigh/knee, is looking better for action Sunday.

"He had limited participation and was able to do some things. I feel good about the fact that, I think he'll probably make," Frazier said. "We'll have to see how he feels tomorrow, but it seems like we're heading in the right direction."

Frazier thought it was unlikely Favre would play (didn't practice) but he won't list him as "out" anymore. #

Favre still not practicing (at QB, anyway)

Vikings quarterback Brett Favre wasn't take snaps at the beginning of Friday's practice as he continues to recover from a concussion suffered Monday night against the Chicago Bears, but he was on the field giving scout-team looks as a linebacker on defense (no contact, of course).

The Vikings have only a walkthrough practice left Saturday before they leave for Philadelphia for their Sunday night game.

Favre's injury occurred in the second quarter when his helmet hit the cold FieldTurf surface of TCF Bank Stadium. He left the game and didn't return.

Since then, he hasn't passed his NFL-mandated post-concussion tests required of him to return to practice.

Safety Madieu Williams also continued to be sidelined at practice, as he too suffered a concussion Monday night. Williams' injury came when he took a knee to the helmet while attempting to tackle running back Matt Forte.

Safety Tyrell Johnson (knee) and Frank Walker (hamstring) were also not practicing.

Favre was at practice doing some scout-team stuff on defense, but I doubt he'll take an QB reps. Update from Frazier later. #
