Minnesota Vikings at St. Louis Rams: Inactive Lists

Thearon W. Henderson

We're about an hour and a half away from kickoff at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, and the Minnesota Vikings and St. Louis Rams have released their inactive lists for this afternoon's contest.

Let's take a look at both of the lists, starting with the visiting Minnesota Vikings.

TE MarQueis Gray
FB Zach Line
LB Michael Mauti
QB Christian Ponder
CB Shaun Prater
LB Brandon Watts
David Yankey

Not a lot of surprises on the list for the Vikings. Everson Griffen, who had been listed as Questionable in the final injury reports with an illness, will play and will start.

And now, on to the home team, the St. Louis Rams.

Maurice Alexander
TE Alex Bayer
QB Case Keenum
CB Trumaine Johnson
Barrett Jones
RB Tre Mason
DT Ethan Westbrooks

In Johnson's place, the Rams will be starting rookie E.G. Gaines at cornerback. Along with LaMarcus Joyner, that means the Rams will have two rookies in their nickel defense. One would think that Matt Cassel, Greg Jennings, and Cordarrelle Patterson could take advantage of that.

Those are the players that will be sitting this one out for both teams. Our Open Thread will be popping up in less than half an hour, so stay tuned for that.
