Injury Report: Jarius Wright, Adrian Peterson Probable for Sunday

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. –The Minnesota Vikings look to pick up their first win in Chicago since 2007 and will do so with a full arsenal of pass catchers. Jarius Wright (concussion) and Adam Thielen (ankle) were full participants in Thursday and Friday's practices and are probable for Sunday after being limited in Wednesday's practice.

RB Adrian Peterson (finger/hip/ankle) did not practice Wednesday or Thursday but was a limited participant in Friday's practice and is probable.

"That's part of the business. Your body gets beat up and you need days like [Wednesday and Thursday] to relax and recover and let your body rejuvenate. Let it rest," Peterson said this week.

On the blocking front, TE Rhett Ellison (concussion) was limited on Wednesday, did not participate on Thursday or Friday and will not play Sunday. FB Zach Line (neck) was able to fully participate in Friday's practice and is probable against the Bears.

Defensively, DT Sharrif Floyd (knee/ankle) and DE Justin Trattou (foot) weren't able to practice this week and have been ruled out for Sunday's game. LB Audie Cole (finger) did not practice on Wednesday and was limited Thursday and Friday, he has been ruled out against the Bears. Tom Johnson (knee) is listed on the injury report but was a full participant in practice this week and is probable for Sunday.

The Bears offensive line has been nursing some injuries through its bye week as T Jermon Bushrod (shoulder), G/T Patrick Omameh (ankle) and G Matt Slauson (knee/shoulder) all participated in practice on a limited basis this week, in addition to C Hroniss Grasu (neck) who was limited on Wednesday and did not participate in practice on Thursday but was a full participant on Friday. Bushrod and Grasu are questionable to play against the Vikings, while Omameh and Slauson are listed as probable.

For the Bears defense, LB Shea McClellin (knee) was unable to practice this week and is doubtful for Sunday. DL Bruce Gaston (illness) returned to practice Friday on a limited basis and is listed as questionable against the Vikings. S Antrel Rolle (ankle) participated in this week's practices on a limited basis, he is also questionable.

LB Pernell McPhee was absent from practice on Friday, the absence was not injury related and he is probable to play against the Vikings.

As a reminder, a player listed as doubtful has a 25 percent chance of playing, a questionable listing gives the player a 50 percent chance of playing, while a player listed as probable is virtually certain to play.
