As strange as it is, we're just one day away from having Minnesota Vikings' football beamed into our living rooms once again. The team will be kicking off Week 14 in the NFL on Thursday Night Football against the Arizona Cardinals tomorrow night, and as such both teams have released their final injury reports for tomorrow's contest. Let's take a look at both of those lists now, starting with the visiting team.

Minnesota Vikings

Player Position Injury Thursday Status
Anthony Barr LB Groin/Hand Out
Linval Joseph DT Foot Out
Andrew Sendejo S Knee Out
Harrison Smith S Knee/Hamstring Out
Brandon Watts LB Rib Out
Robert Blanton S Knee Questionable
Scott Crichton DE Ankle Probable

This list does not include Antone Exum, who does not have to be included after the Vikings placed him on injured reserve yesterday. With the Vikings' regular starting safeties out and Blanton listed as questionable, it's entirely possible that the two starters at safety for the Vikings will be Anthony Harris and Shaun Prater. . .both of whom have been on the 53-man roster for approximately 24 hours. Yeah, no way this ends badly.

Crichton was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. . .everyone else on the above list sat out entirely.

And now, over to the home team.

Arizona Cardinals

Player Position Injury Thursday Status
Andre Ellington RB Toe Out
Jerraud Powers CB Calf Out
Frostee Rucker DT Ankle Out
Jermaine Gresham TE Knee Doubtful
Tony Jefferson S Hamstring Questionable
Cory Redding DT Ankle Questionable
John Brown WR Hamstring Probable
Larry Fitzgerald WR Ankle Probable
Michael Floyd WR Hamstring Probable
Rashad Johnson S Ankle Probable
Mike Leach LS Knee Probable
Stepfan Taylor RB Knee Probable

Yes, the Cardinals listed a lot of players on their injury report, and this doesn't include offensive lineman Earl Watford, who the Cardinals put on injured reserve yesterday. The Cardinals list their top three wide receivers on their injury report, but none of their issues appear to be anything serious. Despite the number of players on their injury report, the Cardinals don't appear to have any major injury issues going into Thursday night.

And that's a look at the injury report for both teams going into Thursday Night Football, ladies and gentlemen. We'll have more for you on this game coming up shortly.
