The Vik­ings put start­ing right guard Pat Elflein on in­jured re­serve, mean­ing the fourth-year player will miss at least three games. The Vik­ings did not dis­close Elflein’s in­jury. NFL Net­work re­ported that Elflein hurt his thumb in prac­tice Thurs­day.

Two of the Saints’ start­ing re­ceivers, two-time All-Pro Michael Thomas and vet­eran Em­manuel San­ders, missed prac­tice. Thomas, who limped off the field late in Sun­day’s vic­tory over Tampa Bay, has an an­kle in­jury. The Saints said San­ders’ ab­sence was not in­jury-re­lated, but no fur­ther ex­pla­na­tion was pro­vided.
