EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The sputtering Minnesota Vikings have four starters whose status is in question for this weekend’s game against Green Bay due to injuries.
Safety Jamarca Sanford and center John Sullivan each suffered a concussion Sunday at Chicago and didn’t return to the game. Coach Leslie Frazier said Monday he wasn’t sure whether either player would even be cleared to practice this week, let alone be able to play against the Packers.
Right tackle Phil Loadholt also left the game against the Bears because of inflammation in his knee. Frazier said an MRI test showed no structural damage, but Loadholt has some tendinitis in the joint.
Cornerback Antoine Winfield also missed his second straight game because of a neck injury.
