Minnesota Vikings at Atlanta Falcons: Inactive Lists for Both Teams

New, comments
Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

We're less than an hour and a half away from kickoff at the Georgia Dome, ladies and gentlemen, and the Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta Falcons have released their inactive lists. Let's take a look at who will be sitting this one out, starting with the visiting team.

Minnesota Vikings

Nick Easton
QB Taylor Heinicke
LB Edmond Robinson
OL Jeremiah Sirles
Harrison Smith
DE Justin Trattou
CB Trae Waynes

As we mentioned last night, Antone Exum Jr. will be getting his first career NFL start at safety with the Smith injury. With Waynes being out, Josh Robinson is active for the first time since coming back off of the Physically Unable to Perform List. He had an interception in last year's game against the Falcons, and it will be interesting to see how the Vikings use him in this one.

And now, on to the home team.

Atlanta Falcons

CB Phillip Adams
Matt Bryant
RB Devonta Freeman
DE Malliciah Goodman
WR Leonard Hankerson
OT Bryce Harris
James Stone

The Falcons are hurt a bit by having to add a second kicker for this one with Bryant's quad injury. Shayne Graham will be handling the kicking duties for the Falcons in this one. We've touched on the injury to Freeman a few times this week as well. . .he's going to be a big loss for a struggling Atlanta offense.

And that's a look at the inactive lists for both sides going into this afternoon's contest, folks. We'll have the Open Thread for the first quarter up at the top of the 11 AM Central time hour.
