With kickoff at TCF Bank Stadium a little more than 48 hours away, it's time to take a look at some injury reports. Both the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Giants have released their final injury reports for the week on this Christmas Day, so let's see who's banged up. As always, we start with the visiting team.

New York Football Giants

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Devon Kennard LB Foot Out
Markus Kuhn DT Knee Out
James Morris LB Quad Out
Cooper Taylor S Concussion Out
Dwayne Harris WR Shoulder Questionable
Orleans Darkwa RB Illness Probable
Ereck Flowers OT Illness Probable
George Selvie DE Concussion Probable

The Giants have ruled out four defenders going into Sunday's game. Harris is the primary return option for the Giants and plays some receiver as well, so his potential absence could be problematic. Darkwa and Selvie were full participants in practice on Friday for New York, while Flowers and Harris were both limited.

Now, on to the home team.

Minnesota Vikings

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Anthony Barr LB Knee Probable
Rhett Ellison TE Ankle Probable
Sharrif Floyd DT Non-Injury Probable
Everson Griffen DE Shoulder Probable
Linval Joseph DT Foot Probable
Jerick McKinnon RB Hamstring Probable
Adrian Peterson RB Ankle/Shoulder Probable
Josh Robinson CB Concussion Probable
Harrison Smith S Knee/Hamstring Probable

Yes, after a few weeks of battling with some pretty significant injury issues, the Vikings are just about as healthy as you can expect an NFL team to be heading into Week 16. In fact, the only players on the injury report that were even limited for the Vikings in Friday's practice session were Ellison and Smith. Everyone else on the report was a full participant.

Floyd missed practice on Wednesday, and was technically removed from the injury report on Thursday, but because he missed a practice we've included him on here. McKinnon was limited on Thursday but a full participant on Friday. Peterson didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday but was full-go today.

And that's a look at the injury report for both teams going into Sunday night's game, ladies and gentlemen. We'll have more for you on this game as we get closer to kickoff.
