Well, this won’t be the week that the Vikings get Chad Beebe back. Even though the rookie wide receiver returned to practice this week he was officially ruled out on Friday. Beebe will miss his fourth consecutive contest with a hamstring injury. He was a limited participant in both Thursday and Friday’s sessions after missing Wednesday’s practice.
Aside from Beebe, however, the Vikings are quite healthy. Only three players were listed as questionable on the team’s injury report. Tight end David Morgan (knee), right guard Mike Remmers (low back) and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson (hip) are all questionable for Sunday. All three players were limited participants in practice this week.
Although they’re officially listed as questionable, it seems probable that all three players will be active for Sunday’s game. Richardson and Remmers told local media during the week that they each plan to play. Morgan’s knee injury is a little more serious. The infliction kept him out for four weeks so the team will likely be a bit more cautious handling his return to the field.
