Neither has formally passed the NFL’s concussion protocol, but the team is still hopeful that will be available Sunday against the Chicago Bears at Mall of America Field. The Vikings listed six players as non-participants, one as a limited participant and four as full participants for Thursday’s practice.

He is likely to remain in the starting lineup. The Vikings filled their open roster spot by claiming offensive tackle Mike Remmers off waivers from the San Diego Chargers.
