Vikings players have arrived at Soldier Field and many of them are on the field going through their initial warm-up routine in advance of today’ game, which will kickoff at 12:00 p.m. CT. As you’ve likely heard by now, WR Sidney Rice was not activated from the PUP list and therefore he will not be in uniform today.
While Rice will not play today, the good news is that both Bernard Berrian and Percy Harvin will play. Berrian (groin) and Harvin (illness/ankle) were both listed as questionable and missed practice time this week.
In other news that fans will consider good, the Vikings have elected to wear the purple jersey pants. Last week the Vikings wore the purple pants with their home purple jerseys.
Right now we have partly cloudy skies with the temperature at 41 degrees and the win whipping on the field. The high for today is 49 degrees and the wind is supposed to be a steady 18-24 mph all afternoon. Stay tuned for Mr. Hippe’s Weather report just before kickoff for up-to-date weather info.
Also, don’t forget to join us for today’s live chat, which will begin just before kickoff.
