We have once again reached Friday, and in addition to getting down on Friday, teams across the National Football League have released their final injury reports. The Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions are no different, so let's take a look at the bumps and bruises for this week, starting with the road team.

Detroit Lions

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Israel Idonije DE Neck Out
LaAdrian Waddle OT Ankle Out
Dwight Bentley CB Concussion Doubtful
Chris Houston CB Toe/Illness Doubtful
Jonte Green CB Shoulder Questionable
Calvin Johnson WR Knee Questionable
Joique Bell RB Knee Probable
Louis Delmas S Knee Probable
Dylan Gandy G Illness Probable
DeAndre Levy LB Foot Probable
Rashean Mathis CB Illness Probable
Darius Slay CB Knee Probable
John Wendling S Ankle Probable

Obviously, the big name on this list is Megatron. Oh, and if you're a cornerback presently employed by the Detroit Lions, sorry that you're injured.

And if you thought the visiting team had a lot of names on the injury report, just wait until you get a look at the home team.

Minnesota Vikings

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Audie Cole LB Ankle Out
Toby Gerhart RB Hamstring Out
Letroy Guion DT Quadriceps Doubtful
Adrian Peterson RB Groin/Foot Doubtful
Shaun Prater CB Ankle Questionable
Xavier Rhodes CB Ankle Questionable
Matt Asiata RB Ankle Probable
Chris Cook CB Knee Probable
Larry Dean LB Knee Probable
Fred Evans DT Knee Probable
Jerome Felton FB Knee Probable
Brandon Fusco G Knee Probable
Charlie Johnson G Non-Injury Probable
Cordarrelle Patterson WR Chest Probable
Marcus Sherels CB Shoulder Probable
Harrison Smith S Groin/Foot Probable

Yep, the Vikings have nearly 1/3 of the active roster listed on the injury report in some way. Haven't heard much about Cordarrelle Patterson being injured, but I'm guessing it won't stop him from being out there on Sunday. We've already gone over Peterson and Gerhart being out. No word yet on whether or not Rick Fenney is bring brought in to back up Asiata and Joe Banyard. And, like Detroit, basically all of our corners are injured.

And those are your (rather sizeable) injury reports for the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions going into the 2013 regular season finale.
