EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Two days ago, Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier didn't have much good news to share when it comes to injuries to several key players. Two days later, Frazier approached the podium for his Wednesday press conference with a bit more optimism.
Frazier started his press conference by saying Minnesota should have everyone available for Wednesday's afternoon practice session. For the Vikings, that includes running back Adrian Peterson, receiver Percy Harvin, tight end Kyle Rudolph and safety Harrison Smith.
Peterson is dealing with a shoulder strain. Rudolph and Smith have both passed their concussion testing, but Rudolph is also dealing with a shoulder strain. Frazier said Harvin, who's been out with a badly sprained ankle since Nov. 4, will participate in the individual part of practice to see how much his injured ankle can stand.
