The Vikings are remarkably healthy on the short week, while the Lions could be getting a key defender back.

We’re less than 24 hours to the Thanksgiving kickoff between the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions at Ford Field. Vikings fans already have something to be thankful for: Wednesday’s injury report.

You read that correctly—everyone on the injury report was listed as a full participant in Wednesday’s practice. Even Mike Remmers, who was sidelined with a concussion early in the Week 8 game against the Browns in London and hasn’t played since. As of this posting there hasn’t been official word as to whether Remmers is completely through the concussion protocol, but his new status seems to be a big step in the positive direction. It also looks like safety Andrew Sendejo and Brian Robison might be able to give it a go on Thursday after missing the Rams game last Sunday. Remmers, Sendejo, and Robison are all officially listed as questionable heading into tomorrow’s game.

The Lions are relatively healthy as well.

The big one Detroit will be missing is kick returner Jamal Agnew, who already has two punt return touchdowns on the season. But they could be getting Ezekiel Ansah back, who has missed the past two games with a back injury. Jalen Reeves-Maybin doesn’t play much on defense, but the Lions could use all the help they can get on that side of the ball after allowing 423 yards on the ground of the past two weeks.

So outside of the players already on Injured Reserve, both teams should be nearly at full strength for the crucial NFC North battle on Thanksgiving. Here’s to hoping both teams stay this healthy down the stretch.
