Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers: Inactive Lists for Both Teams

New, comments
Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

We're less than ninety minutes away from kickoff at Lambeau Field, and both the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers have released their inactive lists for tonight's contest. Let's take a look at those, starting with the visiting team.

Minnesota Vikings

Nick Easton
QB Taylor Heinicke
WR Charles Johnson
DT Linval Joseph
DE Zach Moore
OL Jeremiah Sirles
LB Brandon Watts

Yes, Joseph is out of this one again. He was a long shot in the first place, having been listed as "doubtful" on the Friday injury report, but he will now officially miss his fourth game in the last five weeks. Hopefully he'll be alright for next weekend's playoff game. Sharrif Floyd will once again slide to the nose and Tom Johnson will start at the 3-technique spot.

And now, on to the home team.

Green Bay Packers

OT David Bakhtiari
LB Jayrone Elliott
CB Ladarius Gunter
QB Brett Hundley
TE Justin Perillo
CB Sam Shields
Josh Walker

The Packers had said that Bakhtiari would be a game-time decision, and their decision was to sit their starting left tackle for this one. No word yet on whether the Packers would start J.C. Tretter or Don Barclay at the left tackle spot, but Bakhtiari being out is a big thing for the Vikings in any case. Shields is the Packers' top coverage guy, which is also significant.

Those are the players that will be sitting of the NFC North title game for both teams. We'll have our Open Thread for the first quarter an hour before kickoff at approximately 6:30 PM Central time.
