Once again, it's time to look at injury reports for the Minnesota Vikings and this week's opponent, the Seattle Seahawks. Let's take a look at what both teams have on the report for this week, starting with the visiting team.

Seattle Seahawks

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Demarcus Dobbs DE Concussion Out
Jordan Hill DT Toe Out
Marshawn Lynch RB Abdomen Out
Paul Richardson WR Hamstring Out
Marcus Burley CB Ankle Questionable
Will Tukuafu FB Concussion Questionable
Michael Bennett DE Non-Injury Probable
Jeremy Lane CB Knee Probable
Patrick Lewis C Knee Probable
Earl Thomas S Hip Probable

Lynch has been out for a bit now, but Thomas Rawls has been just as dangerous for the Seahawks in his absence. So, while we won't be seeing "Beast Mode" on Sunday, Seattle will still be dangerous on the ground. Richardson will miss his third consecutive game at wide receiver.

And now, on to the home team.

Minnesota Vikings

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Linval Joseph DT Ankle Out
Andrew Sendejo S Knee Out
Anthony Barr LB Hand/Groin Questionable
Harrison Smith S Knee Questionable
Robert Blanton S Ankle Probable
Trae Waynes CB Ankle Probable

We touched on Joseph's injury earlier on in the day, and it's now official that he will be on the sidelines this Sunday. Sharrif Floyd will slide over to the nose tackle spot, with Tom Johnson getting the start at the three-technique spot. It appears that Antone Exum Jr. will get his second career start, this time starting next to Harrison Smith, who is expected to be back on Sunday despite being listed as questionable.

Barr and Smith were both limited participants in Friday's practice session, while Blanton and Waynes were both full participants.

And that's a look at the injury report for both sides going into this weekend's contest at TCF Bank Stadium, folks. We'll have more coverage of this contest for you as we get closer to kickoff.
