The not-so-good news:
Defensive tackle Shamar Stephen (knee/ankle) missed his second straight practice this week. His attendance in tomorrow’s practice will be worth keeping an eye on. Stephen will likely miss Sunday’s game if he cannot participate in Friday’s practice.
Receiver Michael Floyd (illness) missed Thursday’s practice. He was a full participant yesterday. Despite being ill, Zimmer said Floyd should be good to go against the Eagles.
Mike Zimmer says WR Floyd should be good for Sunday: "It's not the 72-hour flu I don't think."

The good news:
Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (low back) returned to practice Thursday. He was a limited participant in today’s session after not participating on Wednesday. That’s a good sign he’ll be ready for Sunday’s NFC Championship game.
Here’s Thursday’s injury report.
According to NFL.com, Philadelphia Eagles linebackers Dannell Ellerbe (hamstring) and Kamu Grugier-Hill (ankle) were both limited in practice. Rookie cornerback Sidney Jones (hamstring) practiced fully.
