Matt Kalil, Robert Blanton questionable; other Minnesota Vikings probable

Matt Kalil returned to practice on Friday for the Minnesota Vikings after missing the previous two days.

Minnesota Vikings left tackle Matt Kalil returned to practice Friday on a limited basis but was listed as questionable on the injury report.

Kalil had missed the previous two days of practice because of a toe injury, and RB Adrian Peterson (hamstring) and LB Anthony Barr (hand/knee) were limited on Thursday but full participants on Friday and were listed as probable – by definition meaning they are a virtual certainty to play.

Despite Kalil missing two days of practice, head coach Mike Zimmer said on Thursday he assumed Kalil would play and “I expect him to play” against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, and Zimmer indicated the same sentiment on Friday.

The only other player listed as questionable for the Vikings is safety Robert Blanton (back).

In addition to Barr and Peterson, DT Tom Johnson (concussion), RB Matt Asiata (quadriceps), DT Sharrif Floyd (knee/ankle), WR Adam Thielen (shoulder), CB Marcus Sherels (shoulder), DE Justin Trattou (foot) and QB Teddy Bridgewater (left shoulder) were all full participants and listed as probable.

The Packers listed WR Jared Abbrederis as out, S Micah Hyde, WR Ty Montgomery and G T.J. Lang as questionable.

The Vikings (7-2) are one game ahead of the Packers (6-3) for the NFC North lead with seven games to play.
