The Minnesota Vikings could have safety Mistral Raymond back in action this weekend, one step toward some depth in a secondary that's sure to be tested during the second half of the season.
''I'm healed and I'm available. To what extent and how much they want to use me, that's totally up to them,'' Raymond said. ''I'm just going to go out and practice and try to make it feel as natural as possible and get back in the groove of things.''
Raymond hurt his right ankle in the Sept. 23 game against San Francisco and hasn't played since because of what the team described as a bone bruise. The second-year player from South Florida has been practicing, however, and coach Leslie Frazier said Monday ''it looks that way'' when asked if Raymond would suit up for Sunday's game at Seattle.
''We need to get him through an entire week of practice,'' Frazier said. ''We're going to give him a li...

What is this I don't even.
From the intel that I can gather, the above picture IS in fact Minnesota Vikings running back, Adrian Peterson, aka, Purple Jesus, apparently dressed up as the Incredible Hulk for a team Halloween party thrown Monday night.
Want to know the scariest thing about this outfit? He didn't even have to wear fake muscles!
Purple Jesus tweeted...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Adrian Peterson is a beast on the football field, one of the best and toughest running backs in the NFL.
This week he turned himself into a beast off the field.For the Minnesota Vikings' Halloween party, Peterson dressed as the Hulk and then tweeted a picture that would make Dr. David Banner proud. And when Peterson is involved, there's no need for any...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The Minnesota Vikings are well versed in handling injury situations in the defensive backfield and tried to improve the depth coming into this season. After losing cornerback Chris Cook to a broken arm last week, the depth will be tested.
Rookie Josh Robinson has spent much of his time as the team's third corner and A.J. Jefferson, acquired before the season...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. As he's become a very public advocate for gay marriage rights, Chris Kluwe has attracted a lot of attention for his political activism off the field this season.Now, Kluwe is starting to become a focus for his on-field performances, and not in the way he would like. Kluwe, the Minnesota Vikings eighth-year punter, has struggled in 2012, especially in recent...
For all intents and purposes it looks as if Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will live to fight another day.
As Philadelphia prepares to face another struggling group in the New Orleans Saints, coach Andy Reid certainly can’t handle trying to repair his suspect defense and work in a new signal caller in the same week.
There must be order and the Saints can without a doubt offensively...
The Vikings brought in a punter for a workout Tuesday, which could be a message to Chris Kluwe that he needs to perform better.
Christian Ponder continues to regress. When the season started out it looked like the Vikings had a new and improved Christian Ponder, through the first six games of the year Ponder was completing 69 percent of his passes and had thrown only four interceptions.However, Ponder's previous two games, vs. the Cardinals and Buccaneers, he has only completed 52 percent of his passes...
Vikings punter Chris Kluwe defended his outside interests and said they don’t get in the way of his punting. He is one of the most outspoken athletes on Minnesota’ s gay marriage amendment issue, but he said his time spent promoting that and working other interests doesn’t interfere with his ability to punt in a “children’s game.”
*PPPPPPPPPFFFFFTFTFTFTFTFTFFTFTFTTFTFTTFTTFBALLOONDEFLATINGSOUND* Well dudes, it was a good run. After taking the weekend to use my feather pillow and 750 thread count sheets to soak up all the flowing tears and other uncontrollable bodily fluids that come out of me after a Vikings loss, I think I'm prepared to discuss this game and make some general statements about the team...
The Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks didn't end the first half of the season how they wanted. Both are hoping the second half starts on a positive note Sunday.
The Vikings will try to rebound from their most lopsided loss of the year and hand a third consecutive defeat to the Seahawks, who seek their best start at home since 2005.
This game features the NFL's top...
The top two running backs in the league will be on the same field Sunday. But the comparisons between Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch go far beyond this season’s yardage totals. See how similar they are and what the Vikings had to say about Lynch.
