Vikings Injury Update: Ankle Injuries Leave Three Players Questionable For Opener

Three Vikings players are questionable for Sunday's opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars while nursing ankle injuries.

Wide receiver Jarius Wright, linebacker Marvin Mitchell and safety Andrew Sendejo all did not practice Thursday, and head coach Leslie Frazier was not optimistic about their availability, according to the Pioneer Press.

Cornerback Antoine Winfield missed Thursday's practice due to personal issues, but was expected to return on Friday. The Pioneer Press also said safety Mistral Raymond has practiced well since suffering back spasms in the preseason and is expected to start on Sunday. Frazier said earlier that Raymond would start if he was healthy, and that appears to be the case.

Some more good news for Vikings fans is that Sunday's game will not be blacked out.
