We’re about ninety minutes away from kickoff at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and the Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta Falcons have both released their lists of inactive players prior to this week’s big NFC matchup. Let’s take a look at who will be sitting this one out for both teams, starting with the visitors.

Minnesota Vikings

  • DE Tashawn Bower
  • RB Mack Brown
  • WR Stacy Coley
  • OL Aviante Collins
  • DT Jaleel Johnson
  • OT Mike Remmers
  • QB Kyle Sloter

Remmers is missing his fourth consecutive game, although this one is with a back issue and not the concussion he had been dealing with since before the bye. Rashod Hill, who has done an outstanding job in his place, will get his fourth straight start.

And now, on to the home team.

Atlanta Falcons

  • OL Sean Harlow
  • RB Terrence Magee
  • OL Austin Pasztor
  • CB Brian Poole
  • CB Desmond Trufant
  • LB Sean Weatherspoon
  • WR Nick Williams

While the Falcons didn’t list Poole with an injury designation on this week’s final injury reports, he will be sitting this one out as he battles a back issue. The losses of both Poole and Trufant could turn out to be big for the Vikings, as Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen should have room to roam in the secondary in their absence.

That’s a look at who will be sitting this one out for the Atlanta Falcons and the Minnesota Vikings this afternoon, folks. Our Open Thread for the first quarter of play will be up at approximately 11:00 AM Central time, an hour before kickoff in the ATL.
