EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson says he's sorry for the negative attention brought to the organization over the weekend after his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving.

Simpson took part with the team in a light practice on Monday. The Vikings play at Seattle this Sunday, and Simpson said he expects to participate. But coach Leslie Frazier spoke in uncertain terms about Simpson's availability against the Seahawks and beyond.

The NFL suspended him for three games last year for violating the league's substance abuse policy, and his case has again been placed under review by the league.

Quarterback Christian Ponder's status for Sunday is also unclear. He's recovering from a dislocated non-throwing left shoulder.
