Webb To Take Practice Reps For Vikings

Joe Webb may finally get his first NFL start Sunday night in Philadelphia.

The rookie quarterback from Alabama-Birmingham was slated to start for the Vikings on Monday night against Chicago until Brett Favre was deemed healthy enough to play just hours before kickoff. But after Favre suffered a concussion against the Bears, he will likely be sidelined come Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field – although with him, you never know. What is known for sure is that Webb will take the first-team reps at Vikings practice this week.

Webb completed 15-of-26 passes for 129 yards with two interceptions Monday night. He also ran six times for 38 yards and a touchdown (the first of his NFL career).

Also of concern for the Vikings is the status of All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson. An injured thigh forced Peterson to miss the game Monday night, the first game he's missed since November of 2007. Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said that Peterson will likely miss practice Wednesday, but may see some limited action later in the week.
