EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Minnesota Vikings tight end Jim Kleinsasser has a groin injury that kept him from practicing Wednesday.

Cornerback Lito Sheppard was also held out with a hand injury, and safety Husain Abdullah sat with a concussion. Coach Brad Childress said before practice that Abdullah was still "foggy" after a hit to the head last Sunday.

Quarterback Brett Favre was a limited participant because of ankle and elbow injuries that have lingered all year.

The Vikings play at Green Bay on Sunday night.
