We're less than 48 hours away from kickoff at TCF Bank Stadium between the Minnesota Vikings and the Kansas City Chiefs, and both teams have released their final injury reports. Let's take a look at who both teams have listed, starting with the visiting team.
Kansas City Chiefs
The absence of Poe in the middle of the Kansas City defense is obviously a big blow, and something that the Vikings can hopefully take advantage of. Hali's status appears to be legitimately up in the air as well. He didn't practice on Thursday or Friday. He's a very good pass rusher, and even if he's just slowed by that knee issue, that could be a significant help to a beleaguered Minnesota offensive line. The four players that the Chiefs list as Probable were all full participants in Friday's practice.
And now, on to the home side.
The Vikings' top three receivers are all dealing with injuries, but only one of the three is listed as questionable. There was a story out there the other day that Wallace and Johnson were both practicing as though they were going to start, so we'll have to see what happens as far as which receivers are active for the Vikings and which. . .if any. . .will be inactive. (Just between you, me, and the monitor, at this point I wouldn't be surprised to see Cordarrelle Patterson as a healthy scratch.) Trattou is the only player on the report that did not practice on Friday. Johnson, Sendejo, and Ellison were all limited in Friday's practice, while the other three players were full participants.
And that's a look at the final injury reports for the Minnesota Vikings and the Kansas City Chiefs going into Sunday's contest.
