Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd is among those inactive for the game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer thinks Adrian Peterson might return to the team after he’s reinstated into the NFL next spring, according to a report from ESPN.com.
Adrian Peterson’s hearing for the appeal of his suspension will be held on Dec. 2. And it will not be in front of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL announced Friday that longtime hearing officer Harold Henderson will preside over the proceedings involving the Minnesota Vikings star running back.
Minnesota Vikings running back Matt Asiata will miss Sunday’s game against Green Bay because of a concussion. Asiata has not yet been cleared to practice. Running back Jerick McKinnon was listed as probable to play the Packers after participating in Friday’s practice on a limited basis.
The Minnesota Vikings are thin on healthy running backs with Matt Asiata out and Jerick McKinnon banged up. McKinnon is expected to play with a lower back issue, but the team claimed Ben Tate off waivers as insurance. Sharrif Floyd’s status is the biggest question mark of any injury on the team. He banged knees with a teammate and was held out of practice because of it. The Vikings list 13 players on their injury report and the Green Bay Packers list eight on theirs.
