UPDATE: Captain Munnerlyn has been downgraded to "Out" for Sunday. Story here. -Chris
It's Friday and, as we all know, Friday is injury report day in the National Football League. We've gotten the final injury reports for both the Minnesota Vikings and the Washington Redskins leading up to this Sunday's contest at FedEx Field. Let's take a look at the bumps and bruises for both sides, starting with the visiting team.
Joseph returned to practice on Friday, and reportedly said after practice that he was "good to go" for Sunday, which is a HUGE break for the Vikings. With Sherels out again, we can probably expect Stefon Diggs to retain his duties as the punt returner, although Adam Thielen was reportedly working on returning punts at practice on Friday. Munnerlyn is apparently a game-time decision. If he can't go, the team will either go with Terence Newman as the slot corner or with rookie Mackensie Alexander. We haven't heard anything definitive one way or the other.
And now, on to the home team.
It doesn't sound as though Jackson is going to play, which could end up being a break for the Vikings' secondary. He's still a pretty significant deep threat for the Redskins. From what I can tell, it doesn't appear that there are any other huge injury concerns for the home team going into this one.
Man, don't you wish the Vikings' injury report could get this short at some point?
Anyway, those are the final injury reports for both the Vikings and the Redskins for this week's game. Keep it right here for more coverage of this week's contest as we approach kickoff.
