 EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -Minnesota quarterback Tarvaris Jackson's groin is still sore, meaning Kelly Holcomb will get his second straight start when the Vikings play the Packers on Sunday.
Jackson was limited in practice all week with an injury that kept him out of last week's loss to Kansas City, and the second-year player was the only Viking listed as questionable Friday.
That opens the door for the veteran Holcomb, who was underwhelming in his first start as a Viking. He was 14-for-28 for 165 yards against in the 13-10 loss to the Chiefs.
Coach Brad Childress has been hesitant to tip his hand for the past two weeks, but relented Friday after practice.
``Yeah, he has been taking most of the reps and Tarvaris is questionable,'' Childress said of Holcomb. ``You can draw your own logical conclusions from that.''
The Vikings will get a boost with the return of running back Chester Taylor, who injured his hip in the first quarter of the season opener against Atlanta and hasn't played since. Taylor rushed for over 1,200 yards last season and will start against the Packers to help reduce some of the work load on rookie star Adrian Peterson.
``This is the longest I've ever been out since I've been playing,'' Taylor said. ``It killed me to sit on the sidelines and watch everyone play without me being up in there. So I'm going to try and do whatever I can to help my team this week.''
Childress said the veteran Taylor will get the start, but will split the carries with Peterson, who has been the lone source of offense for the Vikings (1-2) in the first three games.
Other Vikings listed as probable and expected to play are fullback Tony Richardson (forearm), safety Dwight Smith (hamstring) and receiver Troy Williamson (hamstring).
