EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings will probably be without standout middle linebacker E.J. Henderson this week.

The swelling in Henderson's two dislocated toes has not subsided since he suffered the injury to his left foot in Sunday's game against Tennessee.

He is wearing a walking boot to immobilize his foot and was not at practice Thursday. Vikings medical staff can't properly assess his condition until the swelling goes down.

Minnesota visits New Orleans on Monday night.
