Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (concussion) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. His status, of course, has taken on increased importance with RB Dalvin Cook out for Week 17. If Mattison can clear protocol, he should operate as Minnesota's lead back in Sunday's dream matchup vs. Detroit's 31st-ranked RB defense.
The Vikings have downgraded RB Alexander Mattison to out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars because of an illness.
