Brett Favre’s shoulder is still hindering his ability to play and has already been ruled out for Monday night’s frozen showdown against the Bears.
Also, for a third consecutive game, guard Steve Hutchinson will not play due to a broken thumb. Safety Tyrell Johnson, dealing with a knee injury, has also been scratched from Monday’s game.
Ray Edwards (ankle) and Jamarca Sanford (concussion) are both questionable.
Adrian Peterson (thigh) is listed as questionable but is expected to start after missing some practice this week.
Joe Webb has been declared the starter for the first time in his young career, but joins Asher Allen (ankle) as being listed as probable because of a lingering hamstring injury.
Newly acquired quarterback Patrick Ramsey will serve as Webb’s backup, and the Vikings might choose to place undrafted rookie R.J. Archer on the active roster to serve as the third quarterback.
