We’ve reached the magical day of Friday, which is when NFL teams are mandated to release their final injury reports and we can get a better idea of who will play. It also signals the return of Vikings football in just a few short days after the bye week. Now, let’s take a look at which players each team will be missing. As always, we start with the away team.
Minnesota Vikings Injury Report
So the bye, for the most part, has allowed the Vikings to get healthy. They get back their starting left guard, Nick Easton, and Stephen Weatherly will be active again after missing several games with a knee issue. Unfortunately, Mike Remmers has not yet been cleared to practice after sustaining a concussion on the first drive of the London game and he will miss his first start with the Vikings. Backup guard Jeremiah Sirles will also miss another game with a recurring knee issue. Everyone else is healthy and have no injury designation heading to Sunday.
Now let’s move on to Washington’s injury report.
Washington Redskins Injury Report
Washington’s injury report has 17 of their 53 players on it, so they are considerably more beat-up than the Vikings. There are two players officially declared out, defensive linemen Arthur Jones and Matt Ioannidis, and the rest are either questionable or have been removed from the report.
Tight ends Niles Paul and Jordan Reed are both trending in the wrong direction to play on Sunday with their Friday designations of DNP. The opposite of that is tackle Trent Williams, who had DNP’s on Wednesday and Thursday before getting in a limited practice today. Overall, the Redskins have six of their ten players on their offensive line listed as injured and it will be very interesting to see how many of them are ruled out on Sunday.
There’s our look at the injury reports before Sunday’s matchup against the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings. If anything changes, we will try and make sure you all are the first to know, and further coverage of Sunday’s game is coming soon.
