LB Chad Greenway, TE Kyle Rudolph set to sit Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Vikings have ruled out linebacker Chad Greenway and tight end Kyle Rudolph for their Thursday night game against Green Bay.

The announcement comes as no surprise. Neither was expected to play. Greenway has been dealing with a broken hand and broken rib while Rudolph will likely miss about another month with abdomen and groin issues.

Vikes say Teddy Bridgewater will be gametime decision
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer told SiriusXM NFL Radio that rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) will be a gametime decision for Thursday's contest at Green Bay. "It's a long season, so we don't want to put him at risk," Zimmer said.

Minnesota listed Bridgewater as questionable. He did not practice Monday or Tuesday and was a limited participant in Wednesday's walkthrough, per NFL Network.

CB coach warning Packers about Vikings WR Greg Jennings
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Packers cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt has sent a word of warning to his players through the media - Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings has returned to form.

"Greg is back, OK?" Whitt said via NFL.com. "I don't know if he was hurt or what happened last year. He looks like the old Greg Jennings. He's fast, he's quick, he's elusive, he's really creative in his route-running. He's fun to watch run routes. The quarterback can get him the ball. So we really have a challenge."

The ex-Packer has not stuffed the stat sheet - he is on the same statistical pace as he was in 2013. But he has come on recently with eight catches for 142 yards over the last two games combined. He has not scored, however, since Week 1.

Christian Ponder preparing to start
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder took the first-team reps Monday and Tuesday while rookie Teddy Bridgewater watched with an ankle injury. "I'm preparing to play, but we're hoping the best for Teddy," Ponder told reporters.

"I've talked to Teddy. He's doing everything he can to prepare and be ready to play."

Ponder has started 35 games, but none with Norv Turner as offensive coordinator. He could be under center Thursday in Green Bay. "It's a very different style of offense than what we've ran the previous three years," Ponder said. "Without Adrian [Peterson], it's different. Defenses play us differently without Adrian. I'm comfortable and fit well in it."
