Injury concerns continue for the Minnesota Vikings, who were missing two more key pieces to an already injury-decimated offense as the team returned to practice Thursday.

Wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson and running back Jerick McKinnon both missed practice Thursday. McKinnon is dealing with a sprained ankle he suffered Sunday, while Patterson was out with a concussion.

Here is the team's full injury report:

Patterson's injury comes as the receiver had been making a re-emergence in the Vikings offense. He's caught 18 passes for 158 yards and a pair of touchdowns this season.

There was some good news in Thursday's report, Laquon Treadwell (thumb) was a full participant after missing Sunday's game in Philadelphia, and Jarius Wright (ankle) also returned to practice.
