Mike Wallace listed as non-participant in practice


After being absent Monday, Vikings receiver Mike Wallace returned to the practice field on Wednesday. Sort of.

Officially Wallace was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday’s practice but unofficially he did get some work in.

According to ESPN’s Ben Goessling, Wallace showed up with a brace on his knee but took the brace off toward the end of practice and caught some passes.

So where does this leave Wallace status-wise? According to him, he’ll be good to go against the Chiefs this weekend.

"“I felt good running around today,” Wallace said. “I think everything should be back to normal tomorrow.”"

Wallace reportedly was hurt in the Denver game when he took a helmet to the knee.

Despite the ding, Wallace went on to finish the Broncos game, ending up with 83 yards and a TD in Minnesota’s loss.

If Wallace is unable to go this weekend, at least they will have back Jarius Wright, who was listed as a full participant in Wednesday’s practice after missing most of the last game with a hand injury.

Receiver Charles Johnson was listed as a limited participant Wednesday with a rib injury.

Mike Zimmer remains listed as a ticked off coach who doesn’t think we need to know about these injuries.
