Adrian Peterson is dealing with a shoulder injury in addition to an ankle injury that put him on last week’s injury report, when he didn’t practice until Friday.
The Minnesota Vikings running back didn’t practice on Wednesday and the team could follow a similar path as last week in making sure he is ready to play Sunday night. Last week, he didn’t practice on Wednesday and Thursday but was a full participant on Friday and listed as probable.
In addition to Peterson, nose tackle Linval Joseph didn’t practice on Wednesday with the toe injury that has been giving him trouble for more than a month. Joseph, who was inactive for the previous three games with the injury, played on Sunday night but the left the game briefly in the first half.
LT Matt Kalil, who said he was essentially leg-whipped in the shin on Sunday night, was limited with a lower leg injury. Also limited Wednesday were Harrison Smith (hamstring), Everson Griffen (shoulder) and Sharrif Floyd (knee). Smith said after practice he was feeling close to 100 percent, but admitted it was hard to differentiate between general post-game soreness and anything additional this week.
The injury report from Green Bay was much more extensive. Six players didn't practice and eight others were limited.
