Smith is dealing with a knee injury suffered when CB Terence Newman ran into him in Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers. Griffen has hip and shoulder injuries.
The rest of the Vikings that were limited on Wednesday returned to full participants on Thursday, but rookie CB Trae Waynes was added to the injury report with ankle injury and was limited, meaning he likely suffered it in Thursday’s practice. He wasn’t listed on Wednesday’s injury report and walked off the field Wednesday without displaying any obvious injury.
For the Falcons, RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) and WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) were held out of practice for a second straight day, and it’s looking unlikely Freeman will play. Kicker Matt Bryant (right quad) went from limited on Wednesday to not participating on Thursday.
