Patterson was also limited in Wednesday's practice for the same reason, but there has been no indication that he will sit-out or be limited in the team's season opener versus the Lions. Though his role may not be limited per se, that isn't to say it would be very big in the first place.
Fantasy Spin: Patterson had some electrifying moments in preseason and could pan out to be a nice long-term option in the Vikings offense. Unfortunately, Patterson's involvement with the first-team offense is still something of an unknown at this stage of the season, and the speedster will have to compete with Greg Jennings, Kyle Rudolph and Jerome Simpson for targets. Patterson's done nothing to suggest that he won't be a viable option down the road, but fantasy owners in leagues of all sizes need to look elsewhere to round-out their fantasy lineups this week.
