The Vikings practice without start players running back Adrian Peterson and receiver Percy Harvin Thursday. Defensive tackle Letroy Guion (turf toe) also missed practice for the Vikings Thursday. Peterson sat out because of an illness but is expected to play Sunday against Detroit. Harvin missed a 2nd straight day of practice with an ankle sprain. Harvin was spotted in the locker room limping badly.
The biggest concern after the Vikings' 30-20 loss at Seattle Sunday is the performance or lack there of from quarterback Christian Ponder. Ponder looked tentative, apprehensive and lacked confidence. How do the Vikings and Ponder fix these problems?
Viking receiver Percy Harvin sustained a sprained ankle in 3 different places Sunday against Seattle and the injury could force him to the sidelines against the Lions. Harvin returned the game Sunday at Seattle after sustaining the injury but he was favoring the ankle. Head coach Leslie Frazier said the sprain is not a high ankle sprain.
The Vikings look to put a disappointing loss to Tampa Bay behind them with a win at Seattle Sunday at 3:05, pregame on WJON at 2:00. The Vikings are 5-3 while Seattle is 4-4. The Seahawks are 4-point favorites. The Vikings will play without backup tight end John Carlson today because of a concussion. He missed last week's game with Tampa Bay too.
The Vikings won 21-14 at home against Arizona Sunday afternoon to improve to 5-2. Adrian Peterson ran for 153 yards on 23 carries and 1 touchdown. Peterson tied Robert Smith with his 29th career 100-yard rushing game. Percy Harvin had 2 carries for 10 yards and 3 catches for 37 yards and 1 touchdown. Christian Ponder was 8-17 passing for 58 yards and 1 touchdown with 2 interceptions for Minnesota. Harrison Smith capped the Viking scoring with a 31-yard interception return touchdown.
