Defensive end Brian Robison is officially listed as probable for Sunday’s game against the Redskins. Robison practiced fully today despite a massive bruise on his backside, which Robison was kind enough to show to a handful of reporters a few minutes ago. He took a knee there down in Tampa. Cornerback Jabari Price is the only Vikings player in question for Sunday.
