Vikings Wide Receiver Jarius Wright was seen on the practice field at Winter Park today with his ailing hand taped up, increasing his chances of squaring off against the Denver Broncos Sunday. He's been sidelined this week that hand injury suffered against the San Diego Chargers last week.
Via Matt Vensel of the Star Tribune:
Jarius Wright appeared to be practicing in some capacity today. Charles Johnson, Justin Trattou, Andrew Sendejo and Jabari Price were not.— Matt Vensel (@mattvensel) October 2, 2015
Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater sure could use Wright's services as it looks like Charles Johnson won't be able to play. Cornerback stalwarts Aqib Talib, Chris Harris and emerging Bradley Roby will be waiting on the other side of the line of scrimmage.
The Broncos have been the gold standard in pass defense thus far in 2015, currently number one in the NFL, yielding only 176 yards per game. Having the versatile Wright on the field Sunday would be a welcomed boost for Norv Turner's offensive unit.
