EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph didn't practice Wednesday because of a bruised quadriceps muscle, and defensive end Jared Allen was limited by a neck injury.
 
Both players were banged up Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. Allen had to sit out a few series in the fourth quarter because of neck spasms, but returned to the game.
 
Coach Leslie Frazier says the team was just being a little cautious with both players and didn't seem concerned about either one missing the game Sunday at Detroit.
 
Safety Mistral Raymond and linebacker Erin Henderson also didn't practice. Frazier says Raymond is expected to miss three to five weeks because of an injured right ankle and Henderson has been out since Week 2 by a concussion.
