The Vikings had two players return to practice Thursday and one who could be lost for an extended time after an injury in Wednesday’s practice.
DE Brian Robison returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday after sitting out Wednesday with a glute injury.
“He’ll be fine,” head coach Mike Zimmer said. “It’s just a bruise … on his butt cheek.”
CB Jabari Price also returned to practice on a limited basis after not participating on Wednesday with a hamstring injury.
However, practice squad quarterback Chandler Harnish suffered a Grade One Lisfranc injury in Wednesday’s practice when an offensive lineman stepped on his foot, Zimmer said. Harnish has seen a foot specialist, but the Vikings plan to bring in other quarterbacks this week as replacements on the practice squad.
Harnish could be lost for several weeks if the Vikings don’t decide to put him on injured reserve.
Other Vikings who were limited in Thursday’s practice: DT Sharrif Floyd (ankle/knee), TE Chase Ford (foot) and CB Josh Robinson (ankle).
For the Redskins, S Ryan Clark (ankle/shoulder) and T Trent Williams (knee) remained limited. All others were full participants.
