Christian Darrisaw said didn't feel anything from his groin injury while playing, that it's "completely 100% healed, and the worst days are behind me. I feel great." Said that he would be ready to go if the Vikings had a Week 7 opponent.
Thielen: "I'm glad we finished that one because that would've been two plays, literally identical plays, the one was from Case Keenum, bounced off my chest and dropped a touchdown, but glad we finished that one."
Sounds like Peterson will be designated for return off injured reserve, where he has to stay for a minimum of 3 games, at some point. Zimmer: "We don’t believe it’s season ending."
Everson Griffen was involved in a car accident on his way into the practice facility on Thursday. Mike Zimmer said the DE swerved to miss a deer in the road. It’s why he showed up on the injury report with a concussion.
