Bernard Berrian Still A Viking... For Now

Bernard Berrian has been a healthy scratch in two of the last three games for the MInnesota Vikings, but he is still on the active roster for now. The Vikings have been reluctant to play him of late, and coach Leslie Frazier has made no guarantees he will be on the roster later in the week:

"We'll make a decision about how we want to handle things going forward," Frazier said, declining to specify his reason for benching Berrian against Green Bay. He added: "We're going to have a little meeting of the minds, and see where we are."

Berrian was originally supposed to be in the lineup on Sunday against the rival Green Bay Packers, but Frazier scratched him for reasons that are unclear. He only has seven catches for 91 yards on the 2011 season and he has not caught a touchdown pass in nearly two years. He does have an ally in benched quarterback Donovan McNabb, who is surprised that Berrian has not been playing.
