Following practice for the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday, we finally got an idea of what's going on with wide receiver Mike Wallace.
According to Ben Goessling of ESPN.com, Wallace took a helmet to the knee in the Week 4 match-up against the Denver Broncos. Apparently the hit happened in the first quarter, which means that Wallace played most of the game with the issue. He had his best game as a Viking with eight catches for 83 yards and a touchdown. . .maybe he should be fighting a knee issue every week. . .and even though he was held out of practice on Wednesday, he says he'll be out there for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
In other Vikings' injury news, the only other player that was held out of practice on Wednesday was defensive end Justin Trattou, who is still dealing with the foot injury he suffered against the San Diego Chargers in Week 3.
Wallace's running mate at wide receiver, Charles Johnson, was back at practice in a limited capacity following his rib injury against San Diego. Andrew Sendejo, who has been dealing with a knee injury, was also limited in Wednesday's practice. Wide receiver Jarius Wright and cornerback Jabari Price were both full participants in practice on Wednesday afternoon.
Hopefully the Vikings will continue to get healthier as we get closer to Sunday's match-up at TCF Bank Stadium.
