News | Minnesota Vikings –

Harrison Smith, Everson Griffen Both Questionable For Sunday

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. –The Vikings look to win their fourth consecutive road contest this weekend as they travel to Atlanta and will do so with a relatively clean bill of health as DE Everson Griffen (hip/shoulder) and S Harrison Smith (knee) both returned to practice on a limited basis Friday. The defensive duo is questionable to play on Sunday.

CB Trae Waynes (ankle) was a midweek addition to the injury report. Waynes was limited in Thursday's practice and did not practice on Friday; he is questionable to play against the Falcons.

DT Sharrif Floyd (ankle), S Robert Blanton (ankle), T Matt Kalil (toe), QB Teddy Bridgewater (left shoulder) and LBs Anthony Barr (hand) and Eric Kendricks (ribs) were all full participants in Thursday and Friday's practices and are all officially listed as probable to play against Atlanta. 

The Falcons will look to snap a three-game skid and are working with a limited roster as RB Devonta Freeman (concussion), WR Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) and K Matt Bryant (right quad) have all been ruled out for Sunday's contest.

Atlanta signed K Shayne Graham this week to handle the kicking duties for the injured Bryant. Graham did not practice on Friday, but it was not injury related, he is probable for Sunday's game.

CB Robert Alford (groin), G Andy Levitre (knee) and S Robenson Therezie (hamstring) were all limited in Wednesday and Thursday's practices but were full participants on Friday. All three are listed as probable to play against the Vikings.

A player listed as questionable has a 50 percent chance of playing, while a probable listing means it's a virtual certainty they will be on the field on Sunday.
