We're right around an hour and a half from kickoff at the Metrodome, ladies and gentlemen, and our participants in today's game have released their inactive lists for today's contest. Let's take a look at those, starting with the visiting team.
Craig Steltz will get the start at safety in Wright's absence. Interesting that Jay Ratliff and Stephen Paea, two defensive tackles the Bears had listed as questionable, are both active. Washington wasn't on their injury report at all.
And now, on to the home team.
No real surprises on the list for the Vikings. . .but, if you haven't already done so, feel free to proclaim the Josh Freeman signing to, officially, have been a huge waste of both money and time.
And those are your inactive lists for both teams leading up to today's action. The Open Thread should be popping up just about any time now, so keep your eyes open for that, folks.
