01/21/18CBMackensie AlexanderRIBQUESTIONABLEAlexander (ribs) did not practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's NFC championship game against the Eagles.

Alexander was able to participate in practice Wednesday and Thursday, so it's concerning he failed to do so again Friday. However, it's possible Minnesota simply gave him the day off. His status likely won't be confirmed until 90 minutes before Sunday's 6:40 PM EST kickoff.

01/21/18SAndrew SendejoCONCUSSIONQUESTIONABLESendejo (concussion) was a full participant in Friday's practice, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Sendejo continues to work his way back after a hit to the head from Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas knocked him out of the game Sunday. The veteran safety has yet to be officially cleared by an independent neurologist, but he sufficiently progressed through the concussion protocol so as to practice all week. Sendejo's presence is crucial, considering Eagles quarterback Nick Foles exposed Atlanta's secondary in last Sunday's divisional-round win by completing 76.7 percent of his pass attempts and throwing for 246 yards.

01/21/18DTShamar StephenKNEE, ANKLEOUTStephen (knee) has been ruled out for the NFC championship game at Philadelphia on Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Stephen suffered a knee injury on Andrew Sendejo's first-quarter interception return this past Sunday and had to be carried off the field. He did not have to go back into the locker room to be evaluated, but the injury was serious enough to hold him out for the remainder of the game and for all of practice this week. With Stephen on the mend, it will be rookie Jaleel Johnson filling in at defensive tackle against Philadelphia's third-ranked rushing offense.

01/21/18WRAdam ThielenLOWER BACKQUESTIONABLEThielen (lower back) will be listed as questionable for Sunday's NFC championship game against the Eagles.

Thielen returned to practice in a limited fashion Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session, and given the magnitude of Sunday's contest, we'd expect him to suit up this weekend barring any setbacks. Thielen was on the field for 77 of a possible 81 snaps on offense in last Sunday's divisional-round win over the Saints, en route to hauling in six of nine targets for 74 yards. Assuming he plays against the Eagles, Thielen would be in line to start at wideout for the Vikings opposite Stefon Diggs, whose TD catch on the final play of last week's game allowed Minnesota to move one game away from a Super Bowl berth.

08/01/17DLSharrif FloydKneeOUTFloyd (knee) has no set timeline for return, Matthew Coller of ESPN.com reports.

Floyd only suited up for one regular season game in 2016 before sitting out the rest with nerve damage in his knee. He's not expected to play Week 1, but the 2013 first-round pick is slated to be the top nose tackle when he returns.
