Minnesota Vikings at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Final Injury Reports

New, comments
Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

We're a little less than 48 hours away from game time at Raymond James Stadium, and that means that today in injury report day. Let's take a look at the bumps and bruises for both sides, starting with the visiting team as we always do.

Minnesota Vikings

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Kyle Rudolph TE Abdomen/Groin Out
Gerald Hodges LB Hamstring Doubtful
Vladimir Ducasse G Knee Questionable
Antone Exum CB Ankle Questionable
Josh Robinson CB Ankle Questionable
Sharrif Floyd DT Ankle Probable
Chase Ford TE Foot Probable
Jabari Price CB Hamstring Probable
Harrison Smith S Ankle Probable
John Sullivan C Concussion Probable
Corey Wootton DE Back Probable

As Ted spoke about earlier, it appears that Ducasse might be getting demoted to the second team right guard spot, with Joe Berger stepping into the starting role. We don't know if it's because of performance or because of Ducasse's injury, but I'm guessing that both probably played a role. Sullivan has passed all of his concussion tests and is good to go for Sunday. Mike Zimmer said in his press conference today that if Robinson can go on Sunday, he would, and that they would figure out more on Saturday. Chad Greenway is completely off of the injury report for the first time in over a month.

Everyone for the Vikings had full participation in Friday's practice, with the exception of Hodges (limited), Rudolph (DNP) and Robinson (DNP).

And now we take a look at the home side.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Brandon Magee LB Knee Out
Jonathan Casillas LB Hamstring Questionable
Anthony Collins OT Knee Questionable
Dashon Goldson S Ankle Questionable
Vincent Jackson WR Ribs Questionable
Josh McCown QB Thumb Questionable
Keith Tandy CB Hamstring Questionable
Johnthan Banks S Neck Probable

McCown's thumb injury means that the Buccaneers will likely roll with Mike Glennon at quarterback for this weekend's game. Of the players on the list, Casillas, Collins, and Jackson had limited participation in practice, while Magee did not practice. Everyone else on the Buccaneers' injury list participated fully in Friday's practice.

And that's a look at the injury lists for both sides leading into Sunday afternoon's game in Tampa. Stick with us for move coverage of this weekend's matchup.
