Pro Bowl guard Steve Hutchinson, a self-outed member of PFT Planet, has some extra time to visit the site on Thursday.
Hutchinson, per the Minneapolis Star Tribune, also didn’t practice on Tuesday, but the assumption was that, like veterans Brett Favre and Jim Kleinsasser, Hutch was merely getting a day off.
Though there’s still a chance that Hutchinson has gotten another day off, there’s an even better chance that he has some type of injury.
We’ll know more when the Thursday injury report is published.
Also absent from practice was receiver Darius Reynaud, the team’s primary punt returner. Reynaud injured a hamstring against the 49ers on Sunday, and his absence helped get Greg Lewis on the field for one of the three finalists for the Week Three Sprint Can’t-Miss Play.
The Vikings host the Packer on Monday night. And if you didn’t already know that, you apparently hit the “s” button instead of the “t” in your attempt to get the latest information about the professional league of armless, one-legged soccer players conjoined by a large steel rod.
