Official Minnesota Vikings/Green Bay Packers Injury Report

Both the Vikings and the Packers released their final injury reports for Monday night's game yesterday, and things look a lot better for the Vikings on the injury front than they do for Green Bay, in my opinion.

Let's start with Green Bay's injuries first.

Player Position Injury Friday Practice Game Status
Josh Sitton G Knee Out Out
James Jones WR Knee DNP Doubtful
Scott Wells C Back DNP Questionable
A.J. Hawk LB Chest Limited Questionable
Charlie Peprah S Hamstring Limited Questionable
Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila DE Knee DNP Probable
Ryan Grant RB Hamstring DNP Probable
Atari Bigby S Ankle Full Probable
Jeremy Thompson DE Groin Full Probable
Chad Clifton OT Knees Limited Probable
Tracy White LB Ankle Limited Probable

And now for the Beloved Purple:

Player Position Injury Friday Practice Game Status
Madieu Williams S Neck DNP Out
Maurice Hicks RB Foot DNP Doubtful
Tarvaris Jackson QB Knee Full Probable
Robert Ferguson WR Ankle Limited Probable

As you can see, the Vikings will have almost their entire complement of players heading into Monday night's game, while the Packers are going to have some injury issues.

Take a look at all of the injuries that Green Bay has on the defensive side of the ball, particularly along the defensive line.  Ryan Pickett isn't on their injury list, but he's also been limited in his participation during the pre-season.  The injury report might say that he's recovered. . .and the Vikings would be well served to test that.

If I was Brad Childress, I'd take my Tarvaris Jackson. . .provided he has his full mobility. . .and get him to the edge on rollouts, sprintouts, and so forth.  Make Green Bay's big uglies run around a little bit.  Between the injuries and the lack of depth on the interior of the Green Bay d-line, it would help the Vikings later on in the game, in my opinion.  Get Peterson and Taylor out on the edges, too, on tosses and swing passes.  Hopefully we'll see that early and often on Monday night.

More on the game as the weekend wears on, folks. . .I'm going to go back to tracking Hurricane Ike.  Yes, ANOTHER freaking hurricane.  Hurricane season has to stop eventually, doesn't it?
