Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions: Inactive Lists For Both Teams

New, comments

Who’s going to be sitting out on Thanksgiving? We’ve got the inactive lists.

NFL: Houston Texans at Minnesota Vikings Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

We’re about ninety minutes away from kickoff in Detroit between the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. That means the inactive lists are out, so let’s take a look at who will be sitting out for both teams.

Minnesota Vikings

WR Stefon Diggs
DT Sharrif Floyd
QB Taylor Heinicke
OT Rashod Hill
CB Terence Newman
CB/PR Marcus Sherels
DE Stephen Weatherly

Diggs apparently gave it a go in pregame warmups, but the team decided that he couldn’t make a go of it. As Ian Rapoport reported earlier this morning, rookie Laquon Treadwell is expected to get the start in Diggs’ spot. Hopefully he will prove to have been worth the wait.

Detroit Lions

S Don Carey
OL Joe Dahl
RB Justin Forsett
LB DeAndre Levy
OT Cornelius Lucas
QB Jake Rudock
DT Khyri Thornton

Carey, Levy, and Thornton were all listed as “questionable” on the injury report yesterday for Detroit, so their being out is no surprise. Also not surprising is that defensive end Ezekiel Ansah will play, though he was also listed as questionable.

That’s a look at who will be sitting this one out for both teams this afternoon, folks. Our Open Thread for the first quarter will be up at 10:30 AM Central time.
