E.J. Hendersons nine-year career with the Minnesota Vikings has probably best been known for his remarkable recovery from a badly broken leg than for any particular achievement on the field. But the sight of those dreadlocks bouncing out of Hendersons helmet over the No. 56 on the back of his jersey while he has raced back and forth and side to side from his middle linebacker spot has become one of the enduring images of Minnesotas not-dominant-but-decent defense over the last decade. Hendersons tenure, the third-longest on the team, could end this weekend. His contract is expiring, and he hasnt heard from the front office about a new deal. Its natural coming up on your last year, always wondering where youre going to be at next September, Henderson said. So, of course, its been on my mind, but Im trying to stay positive and hopefully in the next couple of months we can get something done and Ill still be a Viking.

Vikings DE Jared Allen would have liked to break the NFL single-season mark held by Michael Strahan, but the Bears had no interest in letting that happen once he drew close. Where's Brett Favre when you need him?
Vikings defensive end Jared Allen entered the day four sacks behind Michael Strahan’s “record” of 22.5. Allen is now only 0.5 sacks behind Strahan.
