The Minnesota Vikings are playing the Oakland Raiders this weekend at home as they try to remove the ugly taste from their blowout loss to the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football last week. The Vikings aren't getting any favors from the injury report, however, as tight end Visanthe Shiancoe was added on Thursday after being fully healthy for Wednesday's practice.
Shiancoe apparently tweaked his hamstring on Thursday, but the tight end's status shouldn't be in doubt for Sunday's game.
"I don't think it's anything serious, we'll see (Friday) how he does," Vikings head coach Leslie Fraziers said after practice.
The remainder of the injury report looked the same as it did Wednesday aside from linebacker Erin Henderson. Henderson sat out Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury, but he was listed as "limited" on Thursday.
The remaining injury report is included below.
