Vikings say Rudolph and Smith might be back to play the Pack


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (KTTC/AP) -- When the Minnesota Vikings take the field against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, tight end Kyle Rudolph and safety Harrison Smith might be trotting out onto the field.  Both players were sidelined with concussions in the tilt against Chicago last Sunday.

The Vikes must still wait to see how star receiver Percy Harvin's sprained left ankle responds in practice this week before knowing if the offensive superstar is back in action.

Coach Leslie Frazier says both Rudolph and Smith passed the necessary concussion tests this week, clearing the way for them to play in the pivotal NFC North game at Green Bay on Sunday.

Harvin has missed the last two games, but Frazier says he is hopeful the receiver will be able to practice this week. His status for the game remains unclear.
