With Matt LaFleur now in charge in Green Bay and calling plays, the Vikings will see a new offense Sunday at Lambeau Field.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer broke down Green Bay's offense Wednesday morning, noting among a few changes, that the Packers love to run screen plays.

Zimmer also provided an update on cornerback Mackensie Alexander (dislocated elbow), noting that his MRI earlier this week went well. But Zimmer wouldn't say whether it's a lock that Alexander doesn't play Sunday.

Zimmer added that cornerback Mike Hughes has a chance to see the field this week. He didn't play in Week 1, still coming back from tearing multiple knee ligaments last October.

The 1-0 Vikings take on the 1-0 Packers Sunday at 12 p.m. This starts a stretch of five of six games at Lambeau for Green Bay.
