Vikings left guard Brandon Fusco listed as questionable for Chargers game with concussion


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minnesota — Minnesota Vikings left guard is questionable for the game against San Diego on Sunday.

Fusco missed practice Wednesday and returned on a limited basis Thursday after going through the league's concussion protocol. He participated fully in practice Friday. Coach says a decision on his availability against the Chargers should be made well before the game Sunday.

The Vikings can ill afford another injury on an already banged-up offensive line. Starting center is out for at least two months after having back surgery, and right tackle Phil Loadholt was lost for the year in the preseason with a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Defensive tackle is the only other Vikings player listed on the injury report. He is probable with a knee injury.
