Leading up to Sunday afternoon's contest at Ford Field, the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions have released their final injury reports. Let's take a look at those now, starting with the visiting team.
NOTE: Adrian Peterson's status has changed. Story here.
Floyd's injury is the big one on the list here, obviously, as it will work the Vikings' depth at defensive tackle. Tom Johnson will get the start in Floyd's spot next to Linval Joseph, and the only defensive tackle behind them is now Kenrick Ellis, who the Vikings signed earlier this week. Hopefully the big man can get up to speed quickly.
The Vikings are also going to have some decisions to make at wide receiver, as Johnson and Wright are now both probable. Johnson missed last week's game after being listed as questionable, but he's apparently made significant progress since then. It will be interesting to see who will end up being "down" for the Vikings at receiver. . .or whether they keep all six of their wide receivers active.
Everyone listed on the Vikings' injury report was a full participant in Friday's practice, with the exception of Floyd and Trattou.
And now, on to the home team.
Levy missed the first game against the Vikings as well, and is likely out for the season with his hip issue. Wilson, Johnson, Riddick, and Tate were limited participants in Sunday's practice for the Lions, while everyone else except for Levy and Pettigrew participated fully. Neither Johnson nor Tate was listed on the injury report until today.
And that's a look at the injury reports for both the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions leading up to Sunday's contest at Ford Field.
