EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cordarelle Patterson has a concussion after his best game of the season.

Patterson was held out of practice Thursday. He took some hard hits in the team’s loss last week at Philadelphia, where he caught all seven passes thrown to him for 67 yards and a touchdown. Patterson, used sparingly the past two years, has scored in two straight games while becoming more of an integral part of the offense.

The Vikings have an extra day to heal this week with their Monday game at Chicago. Running back Jerick McKinnon (ankle), strong safety Andrew Sendejo (ankle) and punt returner Marcus Sherels (hand) were also held out of practice Thursday with injuries suffered at Philadelphia.
