NFL Injury Report: Vikings Escape Week 2 With No Major Injuries

The Minnesota Vikings squandered a fourth quarter comeback on Sunday when they allowed Andrew Luck to lead the Indianapolis Colts into field goal range with less than 30 seconds left, where Adam Vinatieri booted through the game-winning kick. But if there was any silver lining in Minnesota's 23-20 loss, it was that the team escaped the game with no major injuries.

With a Week 3 matchup vs. the San Francisco 49ers looming, the Vikings will be practicing at full health and will only have to worry about getting previously injured players up to speed. One notable player on that front is receiver Jairus Wright, who missed his second straight game after injuring his ankle in the team's final preseason game. Wright, a 2012 fourth-round pick from Arkansas, was expected to have a role in Minnesota's offense this season.
