Minnesota Vikings at Oakland Raiders: Inactive Lists for Both Teams

New, comments
Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

We're a little less than ninety minutes away from kickoff at O.co Coliseum between the Minnesota Vikings and the Oakland Raiders, and both teams have released their inactive lists for today's contest. Let's take a look at who will be sitting this one out, starting with the visiting team.

Minnesota Vikings

Nick Easton
DT Kenrick Ellis
QB Taylor Heinicke
LB Eric Kendricks
CB Josh Robinson
OL Jeremiah Sirles
DE Justin Trattou

With Kendricks sitting out, Chad Greenway will get his first career start at the middle linebacker position (I believe). No word on how the Vikings will handle the nickel at this time, but we'll find out.  Brandon Watts will also be getting his first career start at linebacker.

And now, on to the home team.

Oakland Raiders

LB Neiron Ball
RB Roy Helu, Jr.
TE Gabe Holmes
Rodney Hudson
OL Matt McCants
CB Dexter McDonald
WR Rod Streater

As expected, Hudson will sit this one out for the Raiders and Tony Bergstrom will start in his place. No other major news to report for the Raiders based on their injury report.

And that's who will be sitting this one out for both sides, ladies and gentlemen. The Open Thread will be up at the top of the 2 PM Central time hour.
