Official Texans/Vikings Injury Reports

Never has the phrase "sick and tired of being sick and tired" applied more than it does to me. If it's not straight-up sickness, it's aches and pains that make me not feel like doing anything. But, I persist anyway, because that's my job. . .that's what I do.

Now, we actually have Vikings' football to look forward to tomorrow afternoon, after having two weeks to stew over the craziness of the Chicago game. It will be nice to see our guys get back on the field again. But, not all of them are going to make it back. . .let's take a look at some of the players for both teams that will NOT be on the field at the Metrodome tomorrow.

We'll start with the Texans, because they're our guests, and it's just the polite thing to do.

Injuries: Houston Texans


Player Injury Type Injury Date
Kevin Walter knee 10.31.2008
Dominique Barber hamstring 10.31.2008


Player Injury Type Injury Date
Ahman Green thigh 10.31.2008
Zach Diles hamstring 10.31.2008

Out (IR / Out / Suspended / Physically unvailable)

Player Injury Type Injury Date
Jimmy Williams knee 8.4.2008
Scott Jackson foot 8.26.2008
Chris Brown back 8.30.2008
C.C. Brown arm 9.30.2008
Stanley McClover knee 9.11.2008
Harry Williams spine 8.26.2008

No terribly significant injuries for the Texans, it doesn't appear. I see Ahman Green is listed as questionable, but he's been "questionable" since about 2005. As long as the Texans have rookie Steve Slaton available, their running game. . .or what running game they can establish against the Vikings. . .will be as good as it's going to get.

Now, to the Vikings' injury list.

Injuries: Minnesota Vikings


Player Injury Type Injury Date
Madieu Williams neck 10.31.2008
Sidney Rice knee 10.31.2008
Ray Edwards knee 10.31.2008


Player Injury Type Injury Date
Garrett Mills ankle 10.31.2008

Out (IR / Out / Suspended / Physically unvailable)

Player Injury Type Injury Date
Mike Jones undisclosed 8.11.2008
Heath Farwell knee 8.11.2008
E.J. Henderson foot/toes 10.6.2008
Kenderick Allen wrist 8.19.2008
Drew Radovich shoulder 10.13.2008
Jayme Mitchell knee 8.11.2008
Michael Boulware wrist 8.30.2008

The big news coming out of this list is that, good God almighty, Madieu Williams is actually going to strap it up and take the field for the Vikings. And it's about time, too. . .after getting a big contract in the off-season and missing the first 7 games of his Viking career with a neck injury, I can't wait to see what this guy can bring to the defense. Sidney Rice and Ray Edwards are listed as probable as well, and there's no reason to think that they won't either start or see significant time.

We're about 12 hours away from kickoff as I type this. Hopefully every one of you will be back here tomorrow afternoon for the party known as Vikings football!
