Vikings' Taylor Heinicke: Ditches walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heinicke (ankle) has shed the walking boot he wore to protect his foot from further injury, Scout.com reports.

Heinicke declined to talk about his injury after practice, reportedly saying it was time to go lift weights. If those were indeed his plans, his foot may be further along than anticipated. However, Shaun Hill has done nothing to relinquish his role as the backup to starter Teddy Bridgewater, and the Vikings project to carry only two quarterbacks on their active roster entering the regular season. Ultimately, Heinicke appears destined for either the practice squad or injured reserve list in 2016.

Vikings' Anthony Harris: Returns to field
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Harris (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday, Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Harris hasn't practiced for nearly two weeks with an unspecified injury. Now back in action, he'll resume his competition with Antone Exum for the Vikings' backup free safety job behind starter Harrison Smith.

Vikings' Xavier Rhodes: Still out with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rhodes (hamstring) missed a fourth straight practice Wednesday, Matt Vensel of the Star Tribune reports.

Rhodes suffered a hamstring injury on the first drive of last Thursday's preseason game against the Seahawks and has been sidelined ever since. Considering he sat out again Wednesday, his status for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers appears to be in doubt, although we'll have to wait for further confirmation later in the week. Rhodes is slated to start opposite veteran Terrence Newman (undisclosed) at cornerback during the upcoming season, but in his absence, Trae Waynes, Captain Munnerlyn or Mackensie Alexander could see additional reps.

Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater: Says could play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bridgewater (shoulder) said he plans to play in Sunday's preseason game, and head coach Mike Zimmer said he hasn't decided how many possessions he'll receive, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Zimmer said Bridgewater had no limitations in Tuesday's practice, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Bridgewater was held out of Minnesota's second preseason game and didn't throw during pracice Saturday and Sunday. However, his return to practice Tuesday without any limitations should alleviate any concerns about his status for the start of the regular season, even if he doesn't play in the preseason again.

Vikings' Tre Roberson: Suffers broken bone in hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberson is dealing with a broken bone in his right hand, Joel Badzinski of the Pioneer Press reports.

Roberson suffered the injury during the Vikings' preseason opener and originally attempted to play through the injury. However, after the medical staff discovered the break, they held him out of practice last week, which eventually forced him to remain sidelined during the team's second preseason game against the Seahawks. Roberson claims he won't need surgery, but he'll still have to wear "medical gear" for roughly two weeks. It's a tough break for the 23-year-old converted cornerback, who is not a lock to make the final roster.
