Sunday afternoon: Roster maneuvers
By Kevin Seifert
MINNEAPOLIS -- Greetings from the Metrodome, where we're about an hour from kickoff here between the Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee Titans.
The Vikings' list of inactive players had no real surprises. Linebacker Erin Henderson (concussion) is back after a two-game absence, and his backup, Marvin Mitchell (calf) is inactive.
The Vikings do have an extra receiver, Stephen Burton, active for this game. That could be because of a rib injury that made receiver Michael Jenkins questionable (but active) for this game.
Meanwhile, in Jacksonville, the Chicago Bears deactivated receiver Earl Bennett (hand) for the second consecutive week. They left themselves a little heavier at defensive tackle than normal, keeping Matt Toeaina active, probably to help against the Jaguars' running game.
