As the Vikings prepare to attempt to extend their unlikely 4-0 start to five wins and no losses, one key member of the offense has returned to practice. Two others haven’t.
Tight end Kyle Rudolph, who didn’t practice on Wednesday with a rib injury, practiced on a limited basis on Thursday. Receiver Stefon Diggs (groin) and right tackle Andre Smith (elbow) did not practice.
Also not practicing were defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee), tight end Rhett Ellison (knee), and tight end David Morgan (knee).
Linebacker Anthony Barr (wrist) and cornerback Xavier Rhodes (knee) fully participate in practice ans one of the best defenses in the NFL prepares to try to slow down a Texans offense led by quarterback Brock Osweiler and featuring receivers DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller V.
