The Broncos and Vikings may be without some of their star players on Sunday when they play each other in Minnesota.  The Broncos may be without rookie linebacker Von Miller, who did not practice on Thursday with a thumb injury.

The Vikings may not have running back Adrian Peterson, who did not practice on Thursday with an ankle injury.  Peterson expects to be a game-time decision, while the status of Miller is ”in the medical people’s hands,” according to Broncos Coach John Fox.

Also on the Broncos Thursday injury report were tight end Daniel Fells (hand, full participation), safety David Bruton (Achilles, full), running back Willis McGahee (illness, limited) and receiver Eddie Royal (toe, limited).  The Viking’s Jared Allen missed practice for a second straight day, but the team says it was for non-injury-related reasons.

Also of note, although not injury-related, the Vikings waived quarterback Donovan McNabb on Thursday, per his request.  Rookie Christian Ponder has started the last five games at quarterback for Minnesota.

The Broncos would greatly benefit if Miller is able to go and Peterson is not.  More to come on Friday when the official injury report comes out.
