Earl Wolff practiced this week for the first time since injuring his knee against Green Bay on Nov. 10, but there are no strong indications that the rookie safety will play Sunday against the Vikings at the Metrodome.
Wolff is listed as doubtful to play against Minnesota on the team’s official injury report, released after Friday’s walkthrough. He will likely miss his fourth straight game and continue to have his spot filled by Patrick Chung.
Wolff, who supplanted Chung as the starter earlier this year, didn’t participate in all parts of every practice this week but made enough strides for one to assume that he’ll return next Sunday against the Bears at the Linc.
Also doubtful is reserve linebacker Najee Goode, who also practiced this week despite a nagging hamstring injury and stands to miss his second straight game.
Probable are corners Cary Williams and Brandon Boykin. Williams missed some practice Thursday to nurse a sore hamstring. Boykin practiced in full all week despite a minor hip injury.
None of the 53 players on the roster has been ruled out.
