Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints: Inactive Lists

Hannah Foslien

We're just under ninety minutes until kickoff, and that means that both the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints have released their inactive lists for this afternoon's contest. Let's take a look at the lists for both teams, starting with the visitors.

Minnesota Vikings Inactives

DE Scott Crichton
WR Charles Johnson
QB Christian Ponder
CB Shaun Prater
WR Rodney Smith
LB Brandon Watts
OL David Yankey

Linebacker Chad Greenway, who had been listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, will start in this one. Also, it appears that the Vikings are only going with four wide receivers today (Cordarrelle Patterson, Greg Jennings, Jarius Wright, Adam Thielen).

And now, on to the home side.

New Orleans Saints Inactives

Marcus Ball
LB David Hawthorne
RB Mark Ingram
CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste
DT John Jenkins
FB Erik Lorig
WR Nick Toon

Really aren't a whole lot of surprises on the Saints' inactive list. They ruled four players out on their Friday injury report. Jenkins might be a mild surprise, but nothing huge.

And those are the players that will be sitting this one out for both sides.

Our Open Thread for the first quarter of play in New Orleans will be popping up at 11 AM Central time, so keep your eyes peeled for that. It's almost game time, folks!
