Edwards, Hutchinson Practice

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 8, 2009 – 3:29 pm

After sitting out of practice yesterday, Vikings DE Ray Edwards (hamstring) and All-Pro G Steve Hutchinson (back) both practiced on a limited basis today. This is good news for the Vikings considering both players are starters and also considering 5 other players appear on Thursday’s injury report, including RT Phil Loadholt (ankle).

During his weekly press conference today, Vikings offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said that all players go through aches and pains at this point in the season but that Hutchinson might be feeling it a little more than most at this point.

“Obviously we appreciate it; we’re never going to put anybody out there who is injured, but they’re going to have to play through some aches and pains,” Bevell said. “He’s doing that; he’s fighting through it. He’s a tough guy, he competes hard and he’s going to go as much as he can go. A lot of the guys are doing the same thing.”

Loadholt was not on yesterday’s report but appeared on it today and was noted as a limited participant. Also limited today were QB Brett Favre (foot/ankle/knee), LB Erin Henderson (calf) and CB Cedric Griffin (hand). WR Darius Reynaud (hamstring) did not participate in practice today.

There were a few changes to St. Louis’ injury report as well. On the negative side, WR Ruvell Martin (hamstring) was added to the report as a limited participant in practice. WR Keenan Burton (hamstring) and S Anthony Smith (achilles) went from limited to did not participate.

On the positive side, CB Ron Bartell (thigh) and S Craig Dahl (concussion) went from limited to full participants.

WR Donnie Avery (hamstring), QB Marc Bulger (right shoulder) and RT Jason Smith (ankle) remained  limited participants.

    i think we can rest a couple of guys and still beat the rams. don’t take them softly but let hutch rest up for another week. we need him healthy for the ravens and steelers. we must win at least one of those games if not both. i would be happy with a split and no major injuries. ray lewis scares me. he is the type of player who could do some damage to the Vikes injury wise. the steelers are a different team without troy poamalu(spelling?) i want to see Allen knock big ben on his a s s a few times. 6-1 and healthy sounds pretty good to me!
