Mike Wallace Held out of Minnesota Vikings Practice; Charles Johnson, Jarius Wright Return
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Mike Wallace was added in the offseason and Charles Johnson was expected to take another step in his second season with the Minnesota Vikings.
Jarius Wright was another building block of an improving receiving group, but Minnesota's passing game didn't really show itself in the schedule's first three weeks.
Then the Vikings had to face the league's top defense in the Denver Broncos without Johnson or Wright.
Yet, in the process of a 23-20 loss at Denver, Minnesota unveiled its depth at the position where it's long tried to find playmakers.
Following the bye and hosting the Kansas City Chiefs (1-4) the Vikings could be healthy and deep for second-year quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
Minnesota could have its entire group together against the Chiefs' 27th-ranked pass defense. Johnson returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday for the first time since he was injured in Week 3. Wright was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
