We are to the point in the season where injuries typically begin to add up, and both the Vikings and Packers initial injury reports for the week reflect that reality. Neither team is decimated by injury, but several starters and key players for both teams are listed.
We’ll begin with the Vikings, where WR Percy Harvin (ribs), RT Phil Loadholt (knee), S Jamarca Sanford (concussion) and C John Sullivan (concussion) were all held out of practice. CB Antoine Winfield (neck) and LBs E.J. Henderson (knee) and Kenny Onatolu (hamstring) were limited in practice. G Steve Hutchinson (knee) was also on the injury report, but he was listed as a full participant. It’s far too early to speculate on the potential availability of any of these players, so we’ll save that for later in the week.
For the Packers, LT Chad Clifton (knee/hamstring), DE Mike Neal (knee) and LB Frank Zombo (knee) have already been declared out for Sunday’s game. LB Jamari Lattimore (shoulder), LB Clay Matthews (quad), CB Sam Shields (concussion) and G Josh Sitton were held out of practice. S Morgan Burnett (hand) and CB Charles Woodson (foot/knee) were limited, while TE Andrew Quarless (knee) was on the injury report but was also a full participant.
