The Vikings returned from a week off for practice on Monday and wide receiver Mike Wallace didn’t join his teammates on the field.
Wallace had his most productive game as a Viking in Week Four when he caught eight passes for 83 yards and a touchdown in a 23-20 loss to the Broncos, but sat out the team’s only practice last week as well. The Vikings have not had to put out an injury report since that loss, although there were reports last week that Wallace is dealing with a sore knee.
On Monday, coach Mike Zimmer said, via Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press, that he “can’t disclose” why Wallace is out of practice and answered “we’ll see” when asked about the chances that Wallace would be in the lineup against the Chiefs this weekend.
Wide receiver Charles Johnson missed the Denver game with a rib injury and was seen working on the side during Monday’s practice.
