Musgrave wants Patterson more involved

Cordarrelle Patterson was the on the field for only five snaps last week against the Detroit Lions.

Leslie Frazier said earlier this week that Patterson's limited playing time was nothing more than a coaching decision.

That should change this week against the Bears.

Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave says Patterson has a chance to be on the field this week when the Vikings go two, three, four, five or even just one wide at the receiver position.

Patterson also hopes to contribute as a kick returner. Against the Lions, most of the kicks sailed over his head and out of bounds for a touchback.

"It's kind of frustrating," Patterson told FOX Sports North. "When I do catch the ball, I try to make the most of it. When they kick it over my head, sometimes I just wish they'd kick it to me. But they're great kickers and there's going to be a lot that go over my head so I just got to live with it."
