Johnson's illness appears to be some sort of respiratory ailment. No official word yet on his status for Sunday, but I'd be surprised if he wasn't out there. Silatolu was thought to have a chance to start at tackle for the Panthers, but with his absence, it appears that former Vikings' practice squad member Mike Remmers will be starting for Carolina at right tackle.
Lotulelei, Silatolu, and Johnson did not participate at all in Friday's practice for the Panthers. The other four players on Carolina's injury report were full participants.
And now, on to the home squad.
As we mentioned earlier, McKinnon has already told everyone that he won't be playing on Sunday, even though he's "only" listed as doubtful. Asiata is back, and Floyd has said that he expects to play as well.
McKinnon is the only player listed for the Vikings that had no participation in Friday's practice. Floyd, Ford, and Patterson were all limited participants. The other nine players on the Vikings' injury report were all full participants in practice on Friday.
And those are the bumps and bruises for both of the teams in this Sunday's contest. Keep it tuned right here for more coverage of this weekend's game.
