Mike Wallace, Charles Johnson remain out of practice

The Minnesota Vikings were without their starting receivers for Monday’s practice as they return from their bye week.

Minnesota Vikings receiver Mike Wallace continued to sit out practice on Monday with what ESPN reports as a sore knee.

Wallace is the Vikings’ leading receiver with 20 catches for 233 yards – both marks leading the team – and he has one touchdown reception.

He sat out practices last week during the team’s bye week, but general manager Rick Spielman said Wallace was in the building. The team will ramp up practices on Wednesday in preparation for the Kansas City Chiefs, with the first injury report in 10 days issued late Wednesday afternoon.

Also not practicing for the Vikings were DE Justin Trattou (foot), WR Charles Johnson (rib) and S Andrew Sendejo (shoulder). Johnson and Sendejo were going through rehab on the sideline during practice and were joined by center John Sullivan, who is on the injured reserve/designated for return until after the team’s eighth game this season. Sullivan had back surgery in September to fix a bulging disc.
