Harrison Smith and Everson Griffen sat out practice on Wednesday but both look as they the will be OK by Sunday; Teddy Bridgewater practiced in full.
Ben Goessling ESPN Staff Writer
Vikings injury report for Wednesday: Harrison Smith and Everson Griffen were the only two not practicing:
Vikings' emergency QB: Jarius Wright
Jerick McKinnon played quarterback at Georgia Southern, but he rarely threw the ball. Wright doesn't have experience under center, but the coaching staff would probably turn to him in a pinch. Emergency QBs
Vikings safety Harrison Smith only missed a handful of plays when he injured his knee against the Packers.
Veterans Charles Woodson, Philip Rivers and Calvin Johnson are among 32 players nominated for the Art Rooney Award that honors sportsmanship in the NFL.
Surprise names among top rushers
It's no surprise that Adrian Peterson leads the league in rushing yards over the last five weeks. But less-heralded veterans, including Doug Martin, Darren McFadden and Jonathan Stewart, are hot on his heels.
No reason to worry in Minnesota
The Vikings might not win the NFC North, but they're still in pole position in the wild-card race. Minnesota could improve its chances even further with a win over a reeling Falcons squad on Sunday. Playoff projections (Insider)
What's to make of Diggs?
During the first four games of his NFL career, Vikings WR Stefon Diggs racked up 25 receptions, 419 yards and two touchdowns on 36 targets. Since then, however, Diggs has accrued 11 receptions, 154 yards and no scores on 15 targets. Fantasy 32 (Insider)
Vikings slip two spots in rankings
Teddy Bridgewater & Co. couldn't handle the Packers in Week 11, but the loss is nothing to be ashamed of. Our panel didn't dock Minnesota too heavily. Power Rankings
There's still a chance everything could work out the way the Vikings hoped, but Mike Wallace hasn't reached expectations thus far.
The Vikings struggled to run the ball, fell behind by 10 at the half and then couldn't find a way to protect quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
The Vikings can't let the disappointing Packers loss impact a tough stretch ahead that includes matchups with the Falcons, Seahawks and Cardinals.
Like so many teams, the Vikings were unable to contain Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who showed off his out-of-the-pocket skills Sunday.
Packers deliver huge blow to Vikings
Entering Sunday's game in Minnesota, the Vikings had a significant edge over the Packers to win the division. Now, the Packers are nearly 3-to-1 favorites, according to ESPN's Football Power Index.
Packers turn it around on Peterson
Adrian Peterson had torched the Packers in recent years, averaging 140.2 rushing yards per game and losing just one fumble from 2011 to 2014. But Green Bay shut Peterson down on Sunday.
The Vikings will face a tough road to the postseason if they cannot solver their issues on the offensive line.
Prior to the Packers' first drive, a squirrel ran on the field, only to be chased to the sideline by a Vikings official.
Pack regain control of NFC North
Green Bay used a Week 11 victory to jump back on top of Minnesota in the NFC North. If the season ended today, where would these divisional rivals land in the postseason? NFL playoff picture
Rudolph showed big-play potential
The Vikings have been waiting for Kyle Rudolph to make a big play, and their patience was finally rewarded against the Packers. He caught a 47-yard touchdown pass, and set up another scoring drive with a 33-yard catch on a seam route. Game balls
