With the Minnesota Vikings and the Green Bay Packers getting together on Saturday night for their Week 16 contest, today is injury report day as the reports have to be put out 48 hours before the game starts. So, with that, let’s take a look at some of the bumps and bruises going into this one. As always, we will start with the visiting team.
(Note: Neither of the teams actually practiced on Tuesday, so the Tuesday designators are an estimation of who would have sat out or been limited if they had.)
Minnesota Vikings Injury Report
|Tramaine Brock Sr.||CB||Foot||DNP||DNP||DNP||Out|
|Mike Remmers||T||Low Back||LP||LP||FP||------|
For being a Week 16 contest, the Vikings’ injury report is just about as clean as you could hope for. Only two players (Riley Reiff and Kyle Rudolph) were limited in practice, and only cornerback Tramaine Brock has been ruled out after not practicing all week. Everyone else was a full participant in Thursday’s practice. Mackensie Alexander appears as though he’ll be back after missing last week’s game, though he’s listed as questionable. Andrew Sendejo is again listed as questionable, and I assume that if he doesn’t play on Sunday that Anthony Harris would get the start in his place. The interesting one will be offensive tackle Riley Reiff, who is listed as questionable and is still dealing with his ankle injury. Will he be back out there for the Vikings on Saturday night? This team will need him for the postseason, so Mike Zimmer and company have an interesting decision to make on that front.
And now, since they’ve finally released it, we move on to the home team.
Green Bay Packers Injury Report
Davante Adams is still suffering the effects of the hit he took from Panthers’ linebacker Thomas Davis in the Packers’ loss last week. Mike McCarthy has ruled him out for this week. Nick Perry didn’t practice all week, so it would be a surprise to see him out there for this one. Other than that, the Packers have a couple of guys that didn’t practice on Thursday but are still listed as questionable, so we’ll have to see how all of that shakes out.
Those are the injury reports for Saturday night’s game, ladies and gentlemen. We’ll have more coverage of this week’s contest as we get closer to kickoff.
