Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions: Inactive Lists For Both Teams

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

We're about ninety minutes before game time at Ford Field, ladies and gentlemen, and the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions have released their inactive lists for today's contest. Let's take a look at who will be sitting this one out for both sides, starting with the visitors.

Minnesota Vikings

LB Anthony Barr
Robert Blanton
OT Carter Bykowski
FB Zach Line
DT Sharrif Floyd
Charlie Johnson
David Yankey

We knew a little more than half of the Vikings' inactive list when the team released their final injury report on Friday. Gerald Hodges will start in Barr's spot, Andrew Sendejo will be in for Blanton, rookie Shamar Stephen will step in for Floyd, and Vladimir Ducasse will start for Johnson. Scott Crichton is also active, as is Jabari Price, who missed last week's game.

And now, on to the home side.

Detroit Lions

Rodney Austin
WR Ryan Broyles
DT Nick Fairley
QB Kellen Moore
DT Caraun Reid
Garrett Reynolds
DE Larry Webster

Yeah, so much for Ndamukong Suh sitting this one out, which was a ludicrous idea in the first place. James Ihedigbo, who was also listed as having an illness on the injury report, is also active and will start at safety for the Lions.

And those are your inactive lists for this afternoon's game, ladies and gentlemen. We'll have the Open Thread up at approximately 2:25 PM Central time, an hour before today's scheduled kickoff.
