Vikings’ Bullard returns to practice

Days after losing two offensive linemen for the season due to injury, the Minnesota Vikings are close to getting a defensive lineman back.

Wednesday, the team designated Jonathan Bullard to return and he returned to practice.

The 29-year-old was placed on injured reserve last month due to a biceps injury.

In the 11 games he’s played this season, Bullard has totaled 23 tackles, including five for loss.
