Cordarrelle Patterson sits out with concussion; Laquon Treadwell, Jarius Wright return for Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings’ rotating injury concerns at wide receiver continued this week.

After playing without Jarius Wright and Laquon Treadwell on Sunday, those two returned to practice on Thursday while another receiver sat out.

Cordarrelle Patterson, who was targeted only twice in the first three games but 19 times in the last three games, sat out of Thursday’s practice with a concussion as the Minnesota Vikings began preparations for their Monday night game against the Chicago Bears.

While Wright (ankle) and Treadwell (thumb) were inactive against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, leading receiver Stefon Diggs returned to action for that game and remained a practice participant on Thursday after missing the Houston Texans game prior to the bye. He continues to get more consistent work as he works through a groin injury that has been bothering him for more than a month and didn’t even appear on the injury report this week.

Treadwell was a full participant on Thursday while Wright (ankle) was limited.

In addition to Patterson, RB Jerick McKinnon was not practicing after being spotted in the locker room wearing a walking boot. McKinnon suffered an ankle injury on Sunday that he tried to play through, but he’s looking unlikely to play on Monday, which could mean a bigger workload for Ronnie Hillman, who was active Sunday for the first time this year after the Vikings signed him on Sept. 21, but only played in four offensive snaps. 

In addition to Patterson and McKinnon, CB Marcus Sherels (wrist), S Andrew Sendejo (ankle) and DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) also didn’t practice.

LB Audie Cole (finger), G Alex Boone (shoulder/knee), TE MyCole Pruitt (knee) and G Zac Kerin (hand) were limited.
