Other non-Favre news

August 18th, 2009 – 9:38 PM by Chip Scoggins

Lost in all the commotion today was the fact that Pro Bowl defensive end Jared Allen did not practice after suffering what appeared to be a right ankle or foot injury on Monday.

Coach Brad Childress does not typically discuss injuries in the preseason, but Allen’s injury isn’t believed to be serious — although it won’t be surprising if he misses a few days of practice.

  • Quarterback Sage Rosenfels missed his third day of practice with a right ankle injury. Tight end Jim Kleinsasser had a cast on his left hand/wrist and did not practice.
  • Cornerback Marcus McCauley also sat out with an undisclosed injury.
  • The Vikings released rookie linebacker Robert Francois to make room for Favre.
