The Vikings are going to battle with themselves in preparation for Sunday's meeting with the Bears at Soldier Field.
DE Erasmus James and RB Chester Taylor got into a scuffle in the locker room following Wednesday's practice that prompted a team meeting called by coach Brad Childress.
Taylor's right eye is reportedly black, the result of a punch thrown by James. The upshot of the whole deal is James is now on the injury report with a shoulder problem. No one knows if it came from the altercation. Things reportedly ended when Taylor heaved a chair at Taylor and inadvertently hit LT Bryant McKinnie. That's the kind of accuracy you expect from QB Tarvaris Jackson, if anyone.
