The NFL is moving into its 13th week of regular season play. One way you can tell the season has advanced into its last quarter is to take a look at injury reports around the league. Football is often a war of attrition, and both the Vikings and Buffalo Bills injury reports are excellent illustrations of that.
Between the 2 teams, there are 22 players listed on the Wednesday injury report and 13 of them were held out of practice. Only 2 – Bernard Berrian (groin) and Eric Frampton (hamstring) – were full participants.
Held out of practice for the Vikings were: DE Ray Edwards (ankle), G Steve Hutchinson (thumb), WR Greg Lewis (concussion), RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) and QB Brett Favre (ankle/neck/right shoulder). For the Bills, the following players were held out: G Eric Wood (ankle), T Demetrius Bell (knee), CB Terrence McGee (knee), LB Chris Kelsay (illness), DE Dwan Edwards (hamstring), LB Reggie Torbor (shoulder), TE Shawn Nelson (illness) and NT Torrell Troup (fibula).
Former Vikings DE Spencer Johnson, who now plays for the Bills, was limited with a hamstring injury and so was rookie RB C.J. Spiller.
The following Vikings players were limited in practice: WR Percy Harvin (illness), S Husain Abdullah (ankle), CB Chris Cook (knee), WR Sidney Rice (hip) and S Jamarca Sanford (hamstring).
