CB Brandon McDonald (ankle) practiced on a limited basis and is questionable for the game.
For the Vikings, they have a long injury report but many of their star players will play. RB Adrian Peterson (ankle), QB Christian Ponder (knee), DE Jared Allen (groin), FS Harrison Smith (calf), CB Antoine Winfield (knee) and LT Matt Kalil (lower back) are all probable. The only players ruled out are TE John Carlson (concussion) and and former USF product and FS Mistral Raymond (ankle).
