Middle linebacker E.J. Henderson did not take part in the Vikings practice today and it appears extremely unlikely he be able to play Monday night against the Saints. Tight end Jim Kleinsasser also was held out of practice because of a foot injury.
Among those limited in today’s session were safety Madieu Williams (neck); wide receiver Sidney Rice (knee); defensive end Ray Edwards (shoulder); linebacker Vinny Ciurciu (knee); cornerback Benny Sapp (hamstring); and offensive lineman Drew Radovich (shoulder). Sapp and Radovich are the latest editions to the injury report.
The Saints already have declared four players out for Monday. That list includes wide receivers Marques Colston (thumb) and David Patten (groin); cornerback Aaron Glenn (ankle); and tight end Jeremy Shockey (hernia).
Safety Chris Reis (hamstring) did not participate for the Saints. Among those limited for the Saints were tight end Mark Campbell (hamstring); wide receiver Terrance Copper (hamstring); linebacker Troy Evans (ankle); cornerback Randall Gay (hamstring); center Jonathan Goodwin (hamstring); running back Mike Karney (ankle); and running back Aaron Stecker (hamstring).
