Vikings Working on MNF Contingency Plan

The Minnesota Vikings are working on a contingency plan in case the Metrodome will not be ready for next Monday night's game against the Chicago Bears.

"The Minnesota Vikings are working diligently with the University of Minnesota and the NFL on preparing TCF Bank Stadium in the event that Mall of America Field at the Metrodome will not be ready for Monday night’s Vikings-Bears game," the team announced in a statement on their website. "Their cooperation has been tremendous.

"The Vikings are committed to ensuring a home game in Minnesota for our fans. We will continue to update fans and media as the process moves forward, but at this time no further information is available."

The Vikings planned to hold their 50th Anniversary celebration next Monday night.

In addition to looking for a contingency plan for their venue, the Vikings are also working on contingency plans at the quarterback position. With Brett Favre likely unavailable due to shoulder injury that is causing swelling his right hand, last night's starter, Tarvaris Jackson, has a turf toe injury.

Rookie Joe Webb, who was drafted to play wide receiver before being moved back to his college position, will take the first-team reps during practice, and the team may add a veteran during the week.
