Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress met with reporters following Friday’s practice and said he is looking forward to playing San Francisco on Sunday night, saying the 49ers have a good team that plays tough defense and also saying it’s always a good test to go and play in a hostile environment.
Childress said QB Brett Favre will play a series or 2, depending on how the 1st series plays out, and that Tarvaris Jackson will follow Favre and will play into the 2nd half; veteran Sage Rosenfels will play after Jackson. On the defensive side, Childress said Asher Allen will start at CB with Lito Sheppard rotating in and alternating with Allen.
WR Percy Harvin, who experienced a migraine episode on Thursday, will not travel with the team to San Francisco. A piece of good news, though, is that Harvin was at Winter Park this morning interacting with players and coaches. Although he wasn’t participating in activity, it was a welcome sight to see the 2nd-year receiver back with his teammates.
Childress was asked several questions about Harvin and you’ll be able to watch his press conference in its entirety soon right here on vikings.com.
