The Vikings aren’t going to be anywhere near 100% healthy going into Monday night’s highly-anticipated showdown with the Green Bay Packers.
Thursday’s injury report listed a total of 9 players, including the most important one at least from a drama standpoint, quarterback Brett Favre.
Favre seemed to have injured just about every part of his body by the end of Sunday’s grinding victory over the 49ers, but the report only lists a bad foot. “I’ve never been as beat after a game as I was the other day,” Favre admitted. “I had nothing left, so that had a lot to do with how I felt.”
Favre at least was able to practice today, albeit on a limited basis. The same can’t be said for Steve Hutchinson whose bad back kept him off the practice field for a second straight day.
Also unable to practice was Darius Reynaud who left the Frisco game with a hamstring injury.
Cedric Griffin, Chris Kluwe (who is sick), Naufahu Tahi, E.J. Henderson, Erin Henderson and Jim Kleinsasser also rated mention on the report.
From the Packers side, the announcement that Atari Bigby and Brandon Jackson are both out for Monday. Chad Clifton, Cullen Jenkins, Jeremy Thompson and Charles Woodson all skipped practice on Thursday with injuries.
