Evans, Price, Hodges return to practice; 8 others out

Posted by: Master Tesfatsion Updated August 26th at 4:54pm 272759081

Linebacker Gerald Hodges, cornerback Jabari Price and defensive tackle Fred Evans all returned to practice on Tuesday. While Hodges has a knee injury, it has not been disclosed what sidelined Price and Evans.

While three Vikings returned, eight were held out. Wide receiver Rodney Smith, offensive tackle Phil Loadholt (ankle), safety Jamarca Sanford (quad) and nose tackle Linval Joseph (calf) were at practice but did not participate. Smith’s injury is also unknown, but he landed awkwardly on his recovering an onside kick late against the Chiefs on Saturday.

Safety Chris Crocker, linebackers Anthony Barr, Michael Mauti and Brandon Watts were not present. It’s the second straight practice they’ve missed in preparation for the Titans, though it is also unknown at the moment why they’ve been absent from practice this week.
