The Vikings got some good news on receiver Jerome Simpson Wednesday and he’s now expected to play at Washington Sunday.  Simpson doesn’t need surgery for the back problem that caused weakness and numbness in his lower left leg.  He played sparingly against Tennessee because of the injury on Sunday.  Viking head coach Leslie Frazier says “all indications are” that Simpson will be fine to face Washington Sunday.

Simpson didn’t practice Wednesday and neither did running back Adrian Peterson.  Peterson sat for precautionary reasons with a sprained ankle.  Peterson is expected to play at Washington Sunday.  Other players that missed practice on Wednesday include; safety Mistral Raymond and defensive tackle Kevin Williams.  The following players were limited in practice; guard Charlie Johnson, linebacker Marvin Mitchell, safety Andrew Sendejo, and cornerback Antoine Winfield.  Quarterback Christian Ponder was a full participant in practice with a knee injury.

The Vikings are 2-point underdogs at Washington Sunday at 3:25, pregame on WJON at 2:00.
