Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings: Final Injury Reports For Both Teams

The Vikings will be missing some important parts

NFL: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

It’s injury report day in the National Football League, ladies and gentlemen, and the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers have both released their final injury reports leading up to this Sunday’s contest at U.S. Bank Stadium. Let’s take a look at all of the bumps and bruises for both of these teams, starting with the visitors.

Green Bay Packers Injury Report

Player Position Injury Wednesday Thursday Friday Sunday Status

Morgan Burnett S Hamstring DNP DNP DNP Out
Joe Thomas LB Ankle DNP DNP DNP Out
Ahmad Brooks LB Back DNP DNP DNP Doubtful
Kevin King CB Concussion DNP DNP DNP Doubtful
David Bakhtiari T Hamstring LP LP LP Questionable
Bryan Bulaga T Ankle LP LP LP Questionable
Davon House CB Quad LP LP LP Questionable
Ty Montgomery RB Ribs FP FP FP Questionable
Jordy Nelson WR Back FP FP FP ------
Nick Perry LB Hand FP FP FP ------

The Packers do have quite a few significant names on their injury report, including both starting offensive tackles. David Bakhtiari has missed a few games in a row now with his hamstring issue, and even if he’s out there on Sunday, Everson Griffen should be able to continue his hot start against him. Bryan Bulaga on the other side has had problems as well. It sounds like Kevin King is still in the concussion protocol for the Packers as it stands now, so that “Doubtful” could just as well be an “Out,” as far as I can tell. With the losses of King and Morgan Burnett (and potentially Davon House), the Packers are going to be short-handed in the secondary on Sunday. Can the Vikings take advantage?

And now, on to the home team.

Hey, remember a few weeks ago when we talked about how short the Vikings’ injury report was and how this team had remained relatively healthy? Yeah, that was awesome.

If you’re scoring at home, this means that the Vikings go into this one without their #1 quarterback (Sam Bradford), without their #1 running back (Dalvin Cook), and without their #1 wide receiver (Stefon Diggs). It sounds like Michael Floyd will be getting the start in Diggs’ spot, and if he’s going to have a breaking out point, it could come against a Green Bay secondary that has some injuries and isn’t particularly good even when they’re healthy. I assume that Jeremiah Sirles steps in for Nick Easton at guard, as that’s who came in when Easton got hurt on Monday night in Chicago.

That’s a look at the injury report for this one, ladies and gentlemen. We’ll have more on this week’s game as we get closer to kickoff.
