With all the talk about who will or won’t be playing quarterback for the Vikings on Sunday, it’s easy to miss who was and wasn’t practicing on Wednesday for the team that will officially open its new stadium on Sunday night.
Defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee), tackle Matt Kalil (hip), tight end MyCole Pruitt (knee), and cornerback Xavier Rhodes (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. Also, running back Jerrick McKinnon (foot, fibula) practiced on a limited basis.
Injured but fully participating were tight end Rhett Ellison (knee), receiver Charles Johnson (quadricep), linebacker Eric Kendricks (ankle), running back Adrian Peterson (ankle), and tight end Kyle Rudolph (knee).
The Vikings will need all hands on deck (or at least as many as possible) to have a chance to beat Green Bay. Since sweeping the Packers in 2009, the Vikings are 2-10-1 against Green Bay.
