Minnesota Vikings At New York Giants: Inactive Lists For Both Teams

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

We're just about ninety minutes away from kickoff at MetLife Stadium, and that means that both the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Giants have released their lists of inactive players for tonight's contest. Let's take a look at who will be sitting this one out, starting as we always do with the visiting team.

Minnesota Vikings

G Jeff Baca
DT Chase Baker
QB Matt Cassel
LB Gerald Hodges
CB A.J. Jefferson
WR Rodney Smith
DE Justin Trattou

Mildly surprised by Cassel's deactivation. . .the team must be pretty confident that Christian Ponder is good to go in the event that something happens to Josh Freeman this evening.

And now, on to the home team.

New York Giants

DT Johnathan Hankins
CB Jayron Hosley
RB Brandon Jacobs
QB Ryan Nassib
TE Adrien Robinson
S Cooper Taylor
RB David Wilson

Looks like we're going to see a lot of rookie Michael Cox and the newly-acquired Peyton Hillis at running back for the Giants with both Jacobs and Wilson being down for this one. Hopefully the Giants being (theoretically) one-dimensional will be helpful for the Vikings.

And there are your lists for who will be sitting this one out this evening, folks. Keep it tuned right here, as the Open Thread for the first quarter of action will be going up here shortly.
