CINCINNATI -- Linebacker James Harrison is inactive for the Bengals' game against the Vikings because of a concussion suffered a week earlier.

Left guard Andrew Whitworth is in the lineup, recovering from a concussion sustained during practice on Wednesday. Right guard Kevin Zeitler is active but not starting -- he's missed the last four games with a foot problem.

Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson is back after missing one game with a foot injury. Peterson was limited in practice during the week.

Rhett Ellison starts at tight end for the Vikings in place of John Carlson, who went on the injured reserve list Saturday with concussion symptoms. Shaun Prater starts at left cornerback for Xavier Rhodes, sidelined by an ankle injury.
