EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -Minnesota Vikings running back Chester Taylor was listed Friday as questionable for Sunday's game at Detroit, due to a bruised hip that limited his participation in practice all week.
Taylor was hurt in the first quarter of the season opener against Atlanta, and rookie Adrian Peterson took over. Coach Brad Childress said the decision on Taylor's status would not be made until shortly before kickoff against the Lions after coaches and trainers watch him warming up on the field before the game.
``Just kind of incremental progress. Sometimes those things get better as they go. He's done everything he can to put himself in position, so we'll see. We'll leave it up to him,'' Childress said.
Taylor, who was raised in the Detroit area, will have a difficult decision to make with dozens of friends and family expected to attend the game.
``If I felt like I'm good to go, I'm going to go, but I'm still taking it day by day right now,'' he said.
