Week Five Injury Update
As the Vikings approach their week five matchup against the Titans, a number of high profile Vikings have unexpectedly been added to the injury report, and here is the report from Wednesday:
LIMITED PRACTICE: Erin Henderson (concussion), Charlie Johnson (back), Christian Ponder (knee), Marcus Sherels (quadriceps), and Antoine Winfield (knee).
DID NOT PARTICIPATE: Jared Allen (groin), Michael Jenkins (ribs), Mistral Raymond (ankle), and Andrew Sendejo (ankle).
Christian Ponder wore a wrap during practice on Wednesday but is expected to play on Sunday. Henderson, who suffered his head injury in week two, is being worked back into the practice routine with great caution.
Allen was able to return to the Lions game after stretching his groin, so it seems likely that the Vikings are just giving him some rest so he can be ready to go against the Titans.
