Coming off a badly needed bye week, the Packers had only eight players listed on the official Wednesday injury report in advance of their rematch against the division-rival Vikings this Sunday in Minnesota. Six of the eight players who were listed participated in the team’s Wednesday practiced on a limited basis — OLT Chad Clifton (knee), WR Donald Driver (quadriceps), OLB Clay Matthews (shin), DE Ryan Pickett (ankle), TE Andrew Quarless (shoulder) and CB Charles Woodson (toe). Packers players who fully participated in the practice are LB Brandon Chillar (shoulder) and CB Pat Lee (ankle).
Nine Vikings were listed on the report, including two players — WR Bernard Berrian (groin) and S Eric Frampton (hamstring) — who did participate in the Wednesday practice. Participating on a limited basis were QB Brett Favre (ankle/foot), WR Percy Harvin (ankle), OG Anthony Herrera (elbow) and C John Sullivan (calf). Vikings players who fully participated in the practice were CB Asher Allen (concussion), CB Chris Cook (knee) and S Jamarca Sanford (hamstring).
The way we see it
The one player from both teams who appears to be the most unlikely to be able to play Sunday is Berrian, who came up lame at the last minute before Minnesota’s Week 10 game against Chicago, much to head coach Brad Childress’ dismay. If Berrian does not play and Harvin is at less than full strength, the Vikings might have to depend more on the running of Adrian Peterson, who racked up big numbers in the first Packers-Vikings game this season.
