We're right around 48 hours from kickoff between the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears from TCF Bank Stadium, and both teams have released their final injury reports. Let's take a look at them, starting with the visiting team.

Chicago Bears

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Jimmy Clausen QB Concussion Out
Chris Conte S Back Out
Robbie Gould K Quadriceps Out
Jared Allen DE Ribs Questionable
Al Louis-Jean CB Hamstring Questionable
Jeremiah Ratliff DT Knee Questionable
David Bass DE Knee Probable
Ego Ferguson DT Ankle Probable
Kyle Long G Hip Probable
Marquess Wilson WR Knee Probable

Veteran kicker Jay Feely will replace Gould. As the Bears haven't released their standard injury report (the above was cobbled together via various reports from the Twitter), I'm not sure who fully participated in Friday practice for the Bears, who was limited, and who didn't practice at all.

And now, on to the home team. . .grab a beverage, because it's a pretty lengthy report.

Minnesota Vikings

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Anthony Barr LB Knee Out
Brandon Watts LB Hamstring Out
Chad Greenway LB Knee Questionable
Kyle Rudolph TE Ankle Questionable
Jarius Wright WR Back Questionable
Matt Asiata RB Foot Probable
Robert Blanton S Ankle Probable
Antone Exum S Knee Probable
Sharrif Floyd DT Knee Probable
Chase Ford TE Foot Probable
Mike Harris OT Foot Probable
Greg Jennings WR Hamstring Probable
Charlie Johnson G Ankle Probable
Andrew Sendejo S Thumb Probable

Yep, that's fourteen names on the injury report for our favorite team. (Remember the first time the Vikings played the Bears and there were only five names on the injury report?) The team only had three healthy linebackers at practice today (Jasper Brinkley, Gerald Hodges, and OMG AUDIE COLE). Mike Zimmer said at his press conference today that the team would be making a move to bring a linebacker up from the practice squad (either Josh Kaddu or Justin Anderson, the latter of whom has been on the team for all of 48 hours as of now). My guess is that move will involve moving Barr to injured reserve, and possibly either Watts or Greenway.

Barr, Greenway, Rudolph, Watts, and Wright did not participate in Friday's practice, while the "limited participants" were Blanton, Exum, Ford, Jennings, Johnson, and Harris. Everyone else listed on the injury report was a full participant in practice on Friday.

And those are the injury reports for both teams for this Sunday's game, ladies and gentlemen. We'll continue to have more coverage of this weekend's game as we get closer to kickoff.
