Final Pre-Game Injury Reports For Minnesota Vikings And Oakland Raiders

We've still got about three hours before kickoff, ladies and gentlemen, so let's take a look at the final injury reports for both teams leading up to this one.

Since we usually do the visiting teams first, here's a look at the injury report for the Oakland Raiders.

Player Injury Type Injury Date

Hiram Eugene hip 08/26/2011
Matt Shaughnessy shoulder 10/19/2011
Travis Goethel knee 08/23/2011
Chimdi Chekwa hamstring 11/17/2011
Derrick Jones achilles-tendon 08/10/2011

For some reason, a couple of major names aren't listed on this version of the injury report, those names being running back Darren McFadden and wide receiver Jacoby Ford. Neither of them have practiced this week and, barring something unexpected, neither of them are going to play this afternoon.  Seymour was a late addition to the injury report, but he didn't practice on Thursday or Friday with his knee issue. Not having Seymour in the lineup would be a huge blow for the Raiders, as he's probably their best defensive lineman and, without him, their 25th-ranked run defense gets a little bit worse. Since we have that Adrian Peterson fellow, you would think that would be an advantage for the Vikings. Safety Michael Huff also had a bit of a setback, according to our friends at Silver and Black Pride, and his availability for this afternoon is in doubt as well.

Minnesota Vikings Injuries

Probable

Player Injury Type Injury Date
Michael Jenkins knee 11/18/2011
Cullen Loeffler shoulder 11/18/2011
Christian Ponder hand 11/18/2011

Questionable

Player Injury Type Injury Date
Visanthe Shiancoe hamstring 11/18/2011
Erin Henderson hamstring 11/18/2011

Out (IR / Out / Suspended / Physically unvailable)

Player Injury Type Injury Date
Antoine Winfield clavicle 11/16/2011
Jasper Brinkley hip 09/03/2011

Since the Vikings didn't bring in any long snappers, one has to assume that Cullen Loeffler is good to go.

As far as guys that are definitely out for the Vikings, we know that Chris Cook isn't going to be out there, and all indicators are that we're going to be without Husain Abdullah this afternoon as well, as he suffered a second concussion on Monday night. Anthony Herrera is also definitely out of this one as well, with Joe Berger continuing to start in his place. Outside of that, I don't think anyone listed on the report there is going to miss this one, unless Shiancoe's hamstring is worse than anyone has said thus far.

Game thread will be up in about an hour and a half, folks. . .at that time, we'll have the official list of inactives so we'll know who's in and who's out.
