Tailback Fred Crutcher and nose guard Tony Colorito, both seniors, will be unavailable due to shoulder and ankle surgery, respectively. Quarterback Sean Salisbury, another senior, is doubtful.

Only third-string quarterback Sean Salisbury was available for the Minnesota Vikings' practice Wednesday.

Ram safety Anthony Newman is still dreaming about the interception that got away last Sunday. Viking quarterback Sean Salisbury was attempting to get the ball to Hassan Jones on a sideline pattern, but Newman stepped in front for what looked like an easy interception. The ball hit Newman squarely in the hands, but he dropped it. "I took my eyes off it for a second," said Newman, who was checking out his unobstructed route to the end zone.
