The Vikings are playing surprisingly stout defense against the 49ers on Sunday.  Going forward, they’ll have to do it without starting safety Mistral Raymond.

Raymond was carted off after suffering an apparent ankle injury.

The Vikings lead early in the second quarter, 7-3.  In his return to the Metrodome, receiver Randy Moss has one catch for eight yards and a drop on a crossing route that could have resulted in a big gain.
