EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings will play without starting middle linebacker Erin Henderson at Green Bay.
Henderson has missed practice all week due to an unspecified personal matter. On Friday, coach Leslie Frazier ruled the team's leading tackler out of the game against the Packers. Audie Cole will start in Henderson's place.
Another starter, defensive end Brian Robison, was listed as questionable for Sunday because of a muscle spasm in his neck.
The Vikings had better news on the other side of the ball. Running back Adrian Peterson returned to practice on a limited basis after sitting out the last two days to rest his injured groin. He's listed as questionable, along with wide receiver Greg Jennings and center John Sullivan. All three are expected to play.
