returned to practice this week but continues to be limited because of a groin strain. Jackson missed last Sunday’s loss to Kansas City; if he sits out against the Packers on Sunday that would get him three weeks of rest because the Vikings have a bye the following Sunday.
Coach Brad Childress said Thursday that Jackson did “just a little bit more” in practice. “As you’d expect both he and Chester (Taylor) have come back with some soreness because they’ve moved like they haven’t moved since Tarvaris had his injury and Chester (had his),” Childress said.
The head coach would not speculate on Jackson’s status, or Taylor’s for that matter, saying, “We’ll just see how they pursue this. We’ve got a lot of time before we get to Sunday.”
Taylor has missed the past two games because of a hip injury, but first-round pick

He also was sacked five times and admitted that on at least one occasion he should have gotten rid of the ball.
