Minnesota Vikings rookie WR Jordan Addison returns to practice on Thursday

After sitting out of Wednesday's practice with an ankle injury, Vikings rookie receiver Jordan Addison was a limited participant in the team's practice session on Thursday.

This is good news for fellow Minnesota rookie Jaren Hall, who has been named the team's starting quarterback for Sunday's Week 17 matchup against the Packers.

Hall is going to need all the help he can get this weekend, and having Addison out on the field would likely make things easier for the first-year signal-caller.

Addison sustained an ankle injury in the Vikings' loss to the Detroit Lions last weekend after he was involved in a collision with another player during an interception return.

In 15 games this season, Minnesota's rookie wide receiver has accumulated 63 catches for 826 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Vikings already know that Hall will have Justin Jefferson out on the field to throw to on Sunday, but having Addison available as well should give the team a better chance to leave their home stadium with a win over Green Bay.
