Defensive tackle Maake Kemoeatu said Wednesday afternoon his injured ankle -- specifically his Achilles tendon -- is feeling better and he expects to play Sunday against the Saints.
"I'm pretty close," Kemoeatu said. "As far as right now, I think I can go Sunday. I was probably 60 or 70 percent last week, but I'm in the 90s now and should be 100 percent by Sunday."
Receiver Muhsin Muhammad (foot) also missed practice, as did tight end Jeff King (ankle) and receiver Kenneth Moore (hamstring).
Coach John Fox wouldn't say how serious any of the injuries are.
Your guess is as good as mine to what happened with the King and his Moose. Hopefully we will find out more within the week. Expect for Dwayne Jarrett to have a chance to provide an argument for him to start next year if he's good to go, and for Daunte Rosario to block more if King can't go.
