Dallas Cowboys at Minnesota Vikings: Final Injury Reports For Both Teams

New, comments
Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

With the short week this week. . .well, playing on Thursday as opposed to Sunday (given that both teams will have had seven days off since their last game). . .the Dallas Cowboys and the Minnesota Vikings released their final injury reports today for their matchup tomorrow night at U.S. Bank Stadium. Let's take a look at both teams, starting with the visitors.

Dallas Cowboys

Player Position Injury Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Status
Morris Claiborne CB Groin DNP DNP DNP Out
Chaz Green OT Back DNP DNP DNP Out
J.J. Wilcox S Thigh DNP DNP DNP Out
Barry Church S Forearm LP LP LP Questionable
Jack Crawford DE Foot LP LP LP Questionable
David Irving DT Illness LP FP FP Questionable
Demarcus Lawrence DE Back LP LP LP Questionable
Terrell McClain DT Thigh LP LP LP Questionable
Tyron Smith OT Back/Hip LP LP LP Questionable
Sean Lee LB Illness -- DNP FP Questionable
Justin Durant LB Hamstring DNP DNP DNP --

Not entirely sure why the Cowboys didn't give Durant some sort of classification after he didn't practice all week, but that's what they have on their team injury report. Claiborne is a fairly big loss for them, and their secondary is a bit banged up, from the looks of things. Tyron Smith is limited, but I don't think the Cowboys have to worry about whether or not he'll be out there tomorrow night.

And now, on to the home team.

Minnesota Vikings

Player Position Injury Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Status
Joe Berger C Concussion DNP DNP DNP Out
Sharrif Floyd DT Knee DNP DNP DNP Out
Marcus Sherels CB/PR Rib DNP DNP DNP Out
Mackensie Alexander CB Groin LP LP LP Doubtful

Sam Bradford QB Ankle LP LP FP --
Chad Greenway LB Non-Injury DNP -- -- --
Everson Griffen DE Shoulder -- LP FP --
Eric Kendricks LP Hip LP LP FP --
Captain Munnerlyn CB Ankle DNP LP FP --
Jeremiah Sirles OT Hip LP FP FP --
Harrison Smith S Ankle DNP LP FP --
Adam Thielen WR Shoulder FP FP FP --

Berger is the big hit here, obviously. It appears that Nick Easton is in line to get his first NFL start tomorrow night. He looked good in his action against Detroit, so hopefully that carries over. I'm not entirely sure when Alexander got injured, but it doesn't look like he's going to play. Diggs and Newman being on track to return is a positive, and Munnerlyn appears to be getting better as well.

That's a look at the injury reports for both teams going into Thursday Night Football, ladies and gentlemen. We'll have more coverage of this week's game leading up to kickoff.
