Chester update; status unclear for Sunday

An MRI on RB Chester Taylor showed a bruise of his oblique.

Taylor came in at 8 a.m. this morning, and he'll spend Tuesday -- the players' off day -- at Winter Park as well.

Vikings coach Brad Childress did not indicate, one way or the other, if Taylor would play. But he is a tough player, and he'll do whatever it takes to play Sunday in Detroit.

And as good as Adrian Peterson was, everyone has to remember that he's a rookie, and he's not used to playing 16 games. Peterson will play, and he'll play a lot. But the Vikings are better served with both Peterson and Taylor sharing the workload this season. The only people this should upset are those fantasy league owners who drafted Peterson high.

Otherwise, Vikings coach Brad Childress said FB Fahu Tahi is a little banged up, and that FB Tony Richardson has a forearm contusion.

And for those of you out there who were in attendance, Childress would like to thank you for your vocal support.

It is good to get thank you from average coach (hope this is not true) for paining our throat on Sunday by being loud on visiting team!! Hope they continue to play better on road, as I can gurantee you Sean, they will hear much louder noise through media and fan, if they get banged up by Lions which will be the case!!

Good Vikings Coverage Sean!!

Sean thanks for the Vikes updates. I'm a fan that lives down in MD so all I hear about is the dead-skins. Thanks for keeping me in the know of the purple.
