On Wednesday, five Vikings players missed practice with an illness. On Thursday, no one else got sick.

The same five players showed up on Thursday’s practice report, with three of them returning to practice.

Cornerback Patrick Peterson and safety Theo Jackson fully participated on Thursday. Safety Harrison Smith was limited.

Still out were defensive end Danielle Hunter and fullback C.J. Ham.

So it appears that the illness isn’t spread. Which is good news, for now. We’ll see how things go the rest of the week.

The Vikings face the Lions in Detroit on Sunday. Minnesota, despite being 10-2, is a 2.5-point underdog.

10 responses to “Vikings’ illness doesn’t spread, so far

  1. Last 5 games, Lions have beat the Bears, Packers, Giants and Jags. In the same timeframe, the Vikings have beat the Commanders, Bills, Patriots, Jets. Combined record of of Lions oppoenents: 19:30. Combined record of Vikings opponents: 29:19

  2. Vikes are already in the bottom 1/3 of the League defensively. Might be a good thing to see who’s behind Peterson, Harrison, and Hunter before they’re cut in 2023.

  3. Can we stop with this? 3 players for the Lions were also out of practice with illness the same day the Vikings players were. Stop looking for reasons why the Lions dismantle this over rated team come Sunday

  4. These “stories” are uninteresting, and your bias is showing. I know you’re desperate for an outbreak so you can moralize at the NFL to the detriment of the readers.
