The Vikings are planning for a light day of practice today and couldn't come soon enough, with several players hampered with injuries.
With the team coming into Saturday with WR Derrick Alexander, RB James Wofford and OT Lewis Kelly already slowed with injuries, the list grew exponentially Saturday, highlighted by a knee injury to guard Corbin Lacina.
While not thought to be overly serious, the Vikes were cautious with Lacina, having the knee checked out by team medical personnel. But he was far from alone on the Vikings MASH unit.
Here's a short list of the injuries that sidelined players for all or part of Saturday's workouts with the Chiefs -- WRs Cedric James (hamstring) and Chris Walsh (back), LB Raonall Smith (back), CBs Eric Kelly (hamstring) and Brian Williams (hamstring), and TE Byron Chamberlain (calf).
The Vikings hope to have all of the players back next week, but the signs are out there that the aggressive training camp is beginning to take a toll on some key personnel.
* For the record, the Bryant McKinnie Holdout Watch is at nine days and counting.
* In a correction to yesterday's story, Mike at FFMastermind.com reminds us that there is one more first-round holdout in Redskins QB Patrick Ramsey, but, since he didn't deserve to be picked in the first round, hopefully you can forgive the mistake.
