Vikings Roster Back To Full Strength Heading Into Week 2

While many NFL franchises are forced to take a wait-and-see approach with a number of key injuries after the opening weekend of play, it appears the Minnesota Vikings' 53-man roster is as close to full strength as possible following Week 1.

After the return of receiver Jarius Wright, safety Andrew Sendejo and linebacker Marvin Mitchell from injury, every last one of Minnesota's 53 active players managed to suit up for portion of the team's Wednesday practice session that was open to the media, according to the Star Tribune.

While Chris Cook, Rhett Ellison, Josh Robinson and John Sullivan each joined the team's Week 2 injury report, it's still quite promising that the entirety of head coach Leslie Frazier's roster is healthy enough to play right now.

Not only did the most vital player on the team's roster, tailback Adrian Peterson, flourish with a pair of touchdowns in his 2012 debut, but he also reported no swelling or soreness in his knee following the game. The Vikings will be hard-pressed to remain this healthy by the time next week rolls around, but for the moment, the football gods appear to be making things a little easier for Frazier's squad.
