We’re less than ninety minutes away from kickoff at U.S. Bank Stadium, and the Minnesota Vikings and Indianapolis Colts have both released their inactive lists for this afternoon’s game. Not a lot of suspense to these, as there were numerous players from both sides that were already listed as being out on the final injury reports, but now we have the finalized lists. Let’s check them out, starting with the visiting team.

Indianapolis Colts

  • OL Denzelle Good
  • CB Charles James
  • DT Arthur Jones
  • WR Dante Moncrief
  • LB Deiontrez Mount
  • OL Joe Reitz
  • S Duke Williams

Moncrief, once again, is a significant loss for the Colts, as he serves as the #2 wide receiver behind T.Y. Hilton. Phillip Dorsett will serve as the second receiver for the Colts, but he was also listed on the injury report as dealing with a groin issue.

And now, on to the home team.

Minnesota Vikings

  • G Willie Beavers
  • G Brandon Fusco
  • QB Taylor Heinicke
  • S Harrison Smith
  • WR Laquon Treadwell
  • CB Trae Waynes
  • DE Stephen Weatherly

Joe Berger, who missed the last couple of games with a concussion, will be back this afternoon, but he will start at right guard for Fusco rather than center. The Vikings will stick with Nick Easton, who has performed well the past couple of weeks, at the center spot. Anthony Harris will start in Harrison Smith’s place again. Rashod Hill is active for the first time since the Vikings took him from Jacksonville’s practice squad, while Beavers gets to be inactive today. Marcus Sherels is also back for the Vikings. . .and there was much rejoicing. (Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!)

Those are the inactive lists for this week’s contest, folks. The Open Thread for the first quarter will be up at 11:00 AM Central time.
