We are right around ninety minutes from kickoff at U.S. Bank Stadium for today’s contest between the Minnesota Vikings and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The teams have released their lists of inactive players for today’s contest, so let’s take a look at who will be sitting this one out. As always, we begin with the visiting team.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • LB Kwon Alexander
  • TE Anthony Auclair
  • DT Chris Baker
  • CB Brent Grimes
  • C Joe Hawley
  • DE Jacquies Smith
  • OT Leonard Wester

Alexander, Baker, and Smith were all listed as “out” on Friday’s injury report, while Grimes was listed as “doubtful,” so no huge surprises here. That’s a lot of significant defensive firepower that will be sitting this one out for the Bucs, though. . .we’ll see if the Vikings can take advantage.

And now, on to the home team.

Minnesota Vikings

  • WR Rodney Adams
  • QB Sam Bradford
  • DE Tashawn Bower
  • WR Stacy Coley
  • OT Aviante Collins
  • G Danny Isidora
  • DT Jaleel Johnson

Both Adams and Coley being inactive means that the Vikings are rolling with only four wide receivers today (Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Laquon Treadwell, and Jarius Wright). Not something we’ve seen them do very often, but it’s interesting.

Those are the inactive lists, ladies and gentlemen. We’ll have the Open Thread for the first quarter open at 11:00 AM Central time.
