The Vikings returned from their bye week but receivers Percy Harvin (ankle) and Michael Jenkins (foot) missed practice.  Harvin missed the game against Detroit November 11 because of a badly sprained ankle and the ankle hasn't healed enough for him to return to practice yet.  The Vikings are still hoping Harvin can return to practice and play Sunday at Chicago.

Michael Jenkins missed practice because of a sore foot.  An MRI revealed no structural damage.  The Vikings are expected to get the day off today before resuming preparations for Sunday's game with practice on Wednesday.

The Vikings are 6-4 while Chicago is 7-3.  The Bears lost Monday night 32-7 at San Francisco without starting quarterback Jay Cutler who's out with a concussion.  Jason Campbell starting in his place.
