As it always is, Friday is injury report day in the National Football League, and we've gotten the final injury reports for both of the teams that will be taking the field at TCF Bank Stadium this Sunday. Let's take a look at both of them, starting with the visiting team.

Green Bay Packers

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Jared Abbrederis WR Rib/Chest Out
Damarious Randall CB Hamstring Questionable
Micah Hyde DB Hip Questionable Probable
T.J. Lang G Shoulder Questionable Probable
Ty Montgomery WR Ankle Questionable Doubtful
David Bakhtiari OT Knee Probable
Bryan Bulaga OT Knee Probable
Morgan Burnett S Ankle Probable
Jayrone Elliott LB Ankle Probable
James Jones WR Quadriceps Probable
Eddie Lacy RB Groin Probable
Clay Matthews LB Ankle/Knee Probable
Mike Neal LB Hip Probable
Nick Perry LB Shoulder/Hand Probable
Aaron Rodgers QB Shoulder Probable
Josh Sitton G Knee Probable

That's a whole lot of people on the injury report. . .and yes, that's four of the five starters on the offensive line for the Packers listed on the injury report, with Lang being in the worst shape. All four of those offensive linemen were also listed as limited participants in Sunday's practice. Also limited for the Packers on Friday were Elliott, Hyde, Matthews, and Montgomery. Everyone else listed was a full participant except for Abbrederis, who did not practice.

UPDATE, 11:52 AM Central Saturday: The Packers added rookie CB Damarious Randall to the injury report after Saturday's workout with a hamstring injury and listed him as questionable. They also upgraded T.J. Lang and Micah Hyde from "questionable" to "probable," and downgraded Ty Montgomery from "questionable" to "doubtful."

And now, on to the home team.

Minnesota Vikings

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Robert Blanton S Back Questionable
Matt Kalil OT Toe Questionable
Matt Asiata RB Quadriceps Probable
Anthony Barr LB Hand/Knee Probable
Teddy Bridgewater QB Non-throwing Shoulder Probable
Sharrif Floyd DT Knee/Ankle Probable
Eric Kendricks LB Ribs Probable
Tom Johnson DT Concussion Probable
Adrian Peterson RB Hamstring Probable
Marcus Sherels CB Shoulder Probable
Adam Thielen WR Shoulder Probable
Justin Trattou DE Foot Probable

Blanton was only added to the injury report today, and I haven't seen any firm reports as to why he suddenly has a back issue. The biggest concern at this point is Kalil. . .and who would have said that about four months ago. . .with his toe injury. He did not practice on Wednesday and Thursday and was limited in Friday's practice session. If he can't go, I believe the left tackle duties would fall to rookie Austin Shepherd, though I can't confirm that for sure. From all accounts, however, Kalil will go on Sunday.

Kalil and Blanton were the only two players that were limited in practice on Friday. Everyone else was a full participant on Friday.

That's a look at the final injury reports for this weekend's game between the Vikings and the Packers, ladies and gentlemen. We'll have more on this weekend's game all the way up to kickoff.
