The Minnesota Vikings are very thankful this week after getting most of their injured players back on the practice field.
Running back Adrian Peterson was able to participate in a full practice, despite his groin injury, which appears to be minor at this point. CB Xavier Rhodes and WR Joe Webb also returned to the field after passing concussion tests, and both are listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears.
Obviously these aren’t the only injuries the team is dealing with, but these are some of the more important players. Head coach Lezlie Frazier agrees that the team is getting healthy, which is exactly what they need to improve upon their 2-8-1 record.
According to ESPN,
“We’re pretty good health-wise,” Frazier said. “We’re not back to full strength, but we do have a lot of guys that are going to participate who we need to be on the field against a good football team.”
Do you think the Vikings are able to turn their season around, if only a little? Many said that the only game they could win was last week against the Rodgers-less Packers, and the best they could do was tie. Are they doomed the rest of the season?
