MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Vikings say NFL officials are touring TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota to make sure the facility is safe for fans.

They also want to make sure the stadium meets technical requirements for NFL games.

The Vikings plan to use TCF Bank Stadium as their home field when they host the Bears on Monday night after the Metrodome’s roof collapsed in a weekend snowstorm. Workers are currently trying to clear snow from the outdoors campus stadium.

The NFL supports the plan to use TCF Bank Stadium on Monday, but is making sure everything will work.
