Lots Of Bills And Vikings Didn’t Practice On Wednesday

Posted by Mike Wobschall on December 1, 2010 – 3:19 pm

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).

    Favre must have the season-record for having 3 injuries at the same time and yet still start Sunday.

    Several weeks ago people questioned if this team ‘quit’. One player never did, LB Chad Greenway!!! His hit on the receiver in the redskins game was awesome and should have been on the highlight film (shame on you viking organization)!!!! He probably will not make the Pro-Bowl because he is stuck on an underperforming poorly coached team for most of the season. THANK YOU CHAD FOR WORK WORK ETHIC AND FIERCE COMPETETIVE DRIVE!!!!

    Just noticed the Redskins had a total of 29 yds. rushing on Sunday. If this had been a baseball game, they would have been out at first by 3 feet!

    Greenway is one of the true professionals on the team– if every player were like him, I would build the stadium myself.

    I hope at the end of this season, our to be free agents get contracts, Leslie is made the Head Coach, and they bring Favre back. Oh and Favre comes back for training camp too. I’m still hoping that we can squeak into the playoffs this year.

    I didn’t realize Favre now has a neck injury. This time of year nagging little injuries need time to recouperate. Let’s hope we get healthy for the stretch drive.

    I don’t know how these guys play after getting hit all of the time. Brett has been amazing at 41 with all of his injuries. So many younger quarterbacks have been out this year because if injuries. Brett, I hope you make it to the end of the season. Please protect him. He is amazing. It was a great game Vikings! Win the rest of them! Fight hard!

    Just read the article on Foxsports.com about the L.A. Group really pushing for the Vikes to relocate to L.A. !

    Sounds REAL STRONG!

    IF THEY MOVE…THEY ARE NO LONGER THE VIKES…AND I’M NO LONGER A FAN…..NEED TO START THE SEARCH FOR MY NEW TEAM !

    ALL I KNOW IS THAT I WILL STAY IN THE NFC !

    As a huge longtime Vikings fan, i hope and pray that the Vikes move to L.A. I was born, raised and currently live in Los Angeles, but have never known what its like to have a pro team to cheer for here. And now it could be a dream come true. Sorry to all the folks in Minnesota, but it looks like the Lakers could be reunited once more.

    NOW THAT WE HAVE A COACH THAT BELIEVES IN RUNNING THE BALL I HOPE ALLDAY IS READY TO GO !!!!

    With all the injuries to players across the league, why doesn’t the NFL schedule the bye weeks in the second half of the season? Teams and players could use the week off later in the year to help heal.
    I know they are thinking if the season is extended to 18 games, each team would get 2 bye weeks, but make them both in the second half of the season. I know…. it takes common sense.
