EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Jared Allen will undergo an MRI after complaining of back spams in the aftermath of the Minnesota Vikings' 23-14 loss at Green Bay on Sunday.
Coach Leslie Frazier said Allen should be fine for this week's game at Chicago, indicating the MRI is just a precaution.
The only other player to come out of the Packers game with an injury was center John Sullivan, who has a rib contusion, Frazier said. Sullivan should be fine for Sunday, too.
Receiver Percy Harvin, who missed his third consecutive game with a left ankle sprain, did work with an athletic trainer on Monday. But there's "no certainty" Harvin returns against the Bears, Frazier said.
