The Minnesota Vikings had a disappointing finish to an encouraging season. Jared Allen will undergo surgery on his shoulder after the Pro Bowl later this month. The Vikings now begin preparation for the draft in April and evaluating its 14 free agents.
The Minnesota Vikings felt good about its chances to beat the Green Bay Packers on the road in the wild card round of the NFC playoffs. However, starting quarterback Christian Ponder could not play and Joe Webb stepped in. That didn’t go very well and the Vikings lost 24-10.
The Vikings have had a number of young players step up this season and a pair of them may play big roles on Saturday night at Lambeau Field — Jarius Wright and Marcus Sherels.
The Minnesota Vikings believe they will have Antoine Winfield available for Saturday’s game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. However, the swelling in his hand could be the determining factor. The Vikings appear to have everyone except linebacker Tyrone McKenzie available for the game.
The Minnesota Vikings had a very successful month of December. They finished the month with a 4-1 record that propelled the team into the playoffs as the No. 6 seed. Adrian Peterson, Everson Griffen and Blair Walsh led the way for the Vikings.
Adrian Peterson needed 208 yards to break Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing record, but fell nine yards short of the mark. The Minnesota Vikings offense matched the Green Bay Packers drive for drive before winning on a field goal as time expired. The game included drama, controversy and physicality.
The Minnesota Vikings list Brian Robison and Antoine Winfield as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers. However, neither is expected to miss the game. Robison missed the win over the Houston Texans with a shoulder sprain and Winfield suffered a fractured hand in that game.
The Minnesota Vikings did not have Brian Robison in practice Wednesday or Thursday, but the starting defensive end returned as a limited participant Friday. He did some work with the defense’s first unit and could play Sunday. His replacement, Everson Griffen, is also banged up, but is not in danger of missing the game.
The Minnesota Vikings will have to earn a victory Sunday against the Houston Texans at Reliant Stadium. The Vikings will have their hands full with wide Texans receiver Andre Johnson and defensive end J.J. Watt. Minnesota needs a win to improve its playoff chances while the Texans need a win to clinch home field advantage through the playoffs.
The Minnesota Vikings enter its Week 15 contest against the St. Louis Rams with a long list of probable injured players on the injury report. While almost all of them are expected to play, Chris Cook remains on schedule to return in Week 16. Antoine Winfield was the only player listed with 50/50 chance of playing or worse.
The Minnesota Vikings had a chance to stay two games behind the Chicago Bears and move into a tie with the Green Bay Packers with a win Sunday at Lambeau Field. However, two red zone interceptions by Christian Ponder kept the Vikings from pulling off the upset. Adrian Peterson had another outstanding game with over 200 rushing yards.
Percy Harvin returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant, but missed both Thursday and Friday’s practices. He is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Every other injured player is listed as probable.
The Minnesota Vikings played three games in November and lost two of them. The Vikings were led by Adrian Peterson on offense, Antoine Winfield on defense and Kevin Williams on special teams in November.
The Minnesota Vikings had an extra week to prepare for the Chicago Bears, but still provided little resistance. The Vikings scored first, but surrendered 25 consecutive points before falling 28-10 at Soldier Field. Adrian Peterson topped 100 yards for the fifth straight game.
The Minnesota Vikings may be without its leading receiver for a second consecutive game when it travels to Chicago. Leslie Frazier said that everyone else should be okay to go, even though two players are listed as questionable.
