We're now close to 48 hours away from the start of the one playoff game this weekend that matters, that being the match-up at TCF Bank Stadium between the Seattle Seahawks and your Minnesota Vikings. Both teams have released their final injury reports for this one, so let's look those over starting with the visiting team.

Seattle Seahawks

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Luke Willson TE Concussion Out
Marshawn Lynch RB Abdomen Questionable Out
Michael Bennett DE Toe Probable
Kam Chancellor S Pelvis Probable
Jordan Hill DT Toe Probable
Jeremy Lane CB Oblique Probable
Tyler Lockett WR Hip Probable
Russell Okung OT Calf Probable
J.R. Sweezy G Concussion Probable

Lynch is going to play for the first time in weeks following his injury, and he could be front and center with the conditions the way they're forecast to be. It will be interesting to see what sort of shape he's in after the time he's missed. Other than Lynch and the concussion for Luke Wilson, there don't appear to be a whole lot of injury concerns for the Seahawks going into this one.

UPDATE: Ummmmmmm. . .never mind. Lynch isn't playing after all.

And now, on to the home team.

Minnesota Vikings

Player Position Injury Sunday Status
Kenrick Ellis DT Ankle Out
Everson Griffen DE Shoulder Probable
Linval Joseph DT Foot Probable
Zach Line FB Illness Probable
Adrian Peterson RB Low Back Probable
Adam Thielen WR Shoulder/Low Back Probable

It appears that, after missing four of the last five games, Linval Joseph is going to be ready to go on Sunday afternoon. He was inactive for the Vikings' last game against Seattle, and as a result the Seahawks were able to run almost at will against the Minnesota defense. With the return of Marshawn Lynch this Sunday, Joseph's presence is going to be vital. Here's hoping he doesn't tweak it any worse over the course of the game.
