Good news on the injury front as defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery returned to practice on Thursday.
Cox (ankle) and Jeffery (chest) sat out Wednesday's action. Tackle Jason Peters (quad) went from being a limited participant Wednesday to a full one Thursday.
Three players did miss practice for the second time this week: defensive end Derek Barnett (shoulder), and running backs Corey Clement (quad) and Darren Sproles (hamstring).
There are two key injuries to watch in Minnesota. Running back Dalvin Cook missed practice again due to a hamstring injury. Cornerback Trae Waynes has been sidelined with a concussion.
