The Minnesota Vikings and the St. Louis Rams have released their final injury reports for this Sunday's contest at the Edward Jones Dome, and the report for the Vikings has at least one mild surprise on it, while the status of a couple of the Rams' bigger names remains up in the air.

Since we like to start with the visitors when we do this, we'll look at the Vikings first. Here's their list.

Name Position Injury Sunday Status
Antoine Winfield CB Knee Questionable
Jared Allen DE Shoulder Probable
Robert Blanton S Neck Probable
Jasper Brinkley LB Shoulder Probable
Chris Cook CB Arm Probable
Letroy Guion DT Shin Probable
A.J. Jefferson CB Head Probable
Charlie Johnson G Ankle Probable
Chris Kluwe P Knee/Groin Probable
Phil Loadholt OT Knee Probable
Adrian Peterson RB Abdomen Probable
Kyle Rudolph TE Shoulder Probable


Winfield has been listed as "probable" on the report for quite a while, as the coaches have been sitting him out in Friday practices to keep him fresh. According to reports, Winfield will play, but his snaps might be limited.

Oh, and don't get excited about seeing Chris Cook as "probable." He can't come back until next week at the earliest. The good news is that it appears that he will, indeed, be back when the Vikings take on the Houston Texans next Sunday.

Now, a look at the injury report for the hosts, the St. Louis Rams.

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Jermelle Cudjo DT Foot Questionable
Danny Amendola WR Foot Probable
Craig Dahl S Head Probable
Cortland Finnegan CB Ankle Probable
Mario Haggan LB Elbow Probable
Steven Jackson RB Foot Probable
Janoris Jenkins CB Illness Probable
James Laurinaitis LB Back Probable
Mike McNeill TE Thigh Probable
Scott Wells C Knee Probable

The Rams have had some injury issues over the past couple of weeks, but it appears that many of their main components are going to play. Amendola has had a litany of injuries (most notably a shoulder injury early in the year), with the foot problem being the most recent. Finnegan, Jenkins, and Laurinaitis all look to be on track to play as well, despite being limited in practice this week. Finnegan and Laurinaitis sat out both Wednesday and Thursday's practices, while Jenkins was absent on Friday.

There you have the injury reports for both the Vikings and the Rams leading up to Sunday's game. If you're still looking for Minnesota Vikings tickets leading up to Sunday's contest, the link there should have everything you need.
