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.

The Minnesota Vikings fell into a tie for last place in the NFC North Division with a 21-13 loss to the Chicago Bears Sunday at Soldier Field. Teddy Bridgewater threw a touchdown pass to Rhett Ellison in the first quarter, but threw an interception late in the fourth to seal the loss. The best Vikings unit were the special teams, but they were so-so.
Jay Cutler threw for 330 yards and three touchdowns, and the Chicago Bears won for just the second time in seven games, beating the Minnesota Vikings 21-13 on Sunday.
Adrian Peterson says he feels the NFL’s process of assessing his case for potential discipline has been unfair.
The Vikings’ CEO, president and vice chairman have been ordered to pay $2 million to their former business partners after violating a building contract, according to court documents.

The Minnesota Vikings remain hopeful that Kyle Rudolph will return to the lineup Sunday against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. He has missed the last seven weeks after having sports hernia surgery following a Week 3 loss to the New Orleans Saints. The Vikings injury report is pretty clean with just one player each listed as non and limited participants in Thursday’s practice and two players listed as full participants. The Bears have 10 players listed on their injury report.
