Wallace, Wright probable to return for Vikings against Kansas City


It looks like the Vikings will have some help back at receiver as they come off their bye week Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

According to the team's final injury report, released on Friday, wide receivers Mike Wallace (knee) and Jarius Wright (hand) are probable for the game.

Wallace didn't practice until Thursday after taking a helmet in the knee against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 4. But he told reporters earlier in the week that he was confident he'd be ready to go against Kansas City.

Wright, who missed the Denver game, is also probable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, but whether or not Charles Johnson (rib) plays remains a mystery. He participated in practice Friday, but he is listed as questionable.

On the other side of the ball, defensive end Justin Trattou (foot), who did not practice this week, is out. Safety Andrew Sendejo (knee) is questionable and was limited in all three practices this week.

Here is the full injury report for Sunday's game.
