Eric Kendricks gets more work in practice, Matt Kalil held out

By Andrew Krammer

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Eric Kendricks looks on track to return on Sunday against Green Bay.

Kendricks has missed two games since injuring his ribs on Nov. 1 in Chicago, and practiced in full on Wednesday for the first time since the Vikings’ win at Soldier Field. Veteran Chad Greenway has stepped up in Kendricks’ absence, making his first career start at middle linebacker in Oakland.

“[Kendricks] should be ready to go,” coach Mike Zimmer said.

Left tackle Matt Kalil (toe) was the only player held out of practice on Wednesday. New ailments are listed on the team’s official injury report for linebacker Anthony Barr (hand/knee) and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (left shoulder). Barr was limited in practice, while Bridgewater was a full participant.

Adrian Peterson (hamstring) was also limited in practice on Wednesday, joining running back Matt Asiata (quad), defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee/ankle) and defensive tackle Tom Johnson (concussion) as limited.

Receiver Adam Thielen (shoulder), cornerback Marcus Sherels (shoulder), defensive end Justin Trattou (foot), Bridgewater and Kendricks were designated ‘full participants.’

Packers’ injury report: G T.J. Lang (shoulder), T Bryan Bulaga (knee) and WR Jared Abbrederis (rib/chest) did not practice; T David Bakhtiari (knee), DB Micah Hyde (hip), QB Aaron Rodgers (right shoulder), G Josh Sitton (knee) and LB Clay Matthews (ankle/knee) were limited; LB Nick Perry (shoulder/hand), LB Mike Neal (hip), WR Ty Montgomery (ankle), RB Eddie Lacy (groin), WR James Jones (quad) and S Morgan Burnett (ankle) were full participants.
