Gallishaw Placed On I.R.

The Vikings placed another player on injured reserve Thursday.

The Vikings have remained afloat for the past five weeks despite injuries that have depleted several key areas. Just as Fred Smoot is coming back, one of his replacements is on the shelf.

The team announced Thursday that Laroni Gallishaw has been placed on injured reserve and is lost for the season.

Gallishaw has been replaced on the 53-man roster by DB Ukee Dozier.

* To replace Dozier on the practice squad, the Vikings signed DB Marvin Ward.
* Mewelde Moore missed part of Thursday's practice with a strained right quadricep. His status is unclear for his role Sunday, but he was added to the injury report.
* Kevin Williams isn't going to play Sunday and will likely be downgraded from doubtful to out.
* FOX Sports is looking to have the NFL push the Vikings-Bears game back from noon to 3:15 local time to get as much potential exposure as it can for the game that could decide the division title.
