Chapman Put on I.R.
But after suffering a bout of internal bleeding and being hospitalized Monday, Chapman is out for the rest of the season.

The Vikings may look at adding another running back to the roster, but, for now James Wofford moves into Chapman's spot on the depth chart.
* VU is again hearing that the Vikings and the agents for Bryant McKinnie remain optimistic on a deal getting done. From what we're hearing, the Vikings may be willing to give McKinnie the $9.3 million signing bonus he seeks in exchange for adding time to the contract, which could become a six- or even seven-year deal.
* The Vikings continue to list wide receiver D'Wayne Bates as doubtful for Sunday with back spasms. * The Vikings waived OT Matt Anderle from the practice squad Monday and re-signed DB Carey Scott.
* Of the Vikings' six opponents so far this year, only one of them (Buffalo) had a winning record.
* Former coach Jim Mora, who apparently doesn't have much else to do, absolutely blasted Randy Moss, saying that he believes the Vikings should cut him and nobody else sign him. Perhaps that would give Moss about the same prospect of NFL employment as Mora himself.
