The Vikings' injury report will be a little more crowded than usual this week as Kyle Rudolph, Adrian Peterson, Harrison Smith and Jasper Brinkley were dinged up in Chicago.

Peterson strained his shoulder, but head coach Leslie Frazier doesn't think the injury will impact his status for this Sunday's game at Green Bay.

The same can't be said for tight end Kyle Rudolph and safety Harrison Smith. Both are dealing with concussion symptoms and won't be allowed to practice until they pass league-mandated tests.

Brinkley suffered a mild sprain to the AC joint in one of his shoulders.

An update on wide receiver Percy Harvin was not available. Harvin missed the game and hasn't practiced since injuring an ankle three weeks ago against Seattle.
