With today being two days before their season opener, the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints both released their final injury reports leading up to Monday’s game at U.S. Bank Stadium. Let’s take a brief look at the injury reports for both teams, starting with the visitors as we always do.

New Orleans Saints Injury Report

Player Position Injury Thursday Friday Saturday Monday Status
Player Position Injury Thursday Friday Saturday Monday Status
Trey Hendrickson DE Illness DNP DNP DNP Out
Terron Armstead OT Shoulder DNP DNP DNP Out
Nate Stupar LB Hamstring DNP DNP DNP Out
Jon Dorenbos LS Illness DNP DNP ------ ------
Stephone Anthony LB Ankle LP LP LP Questionable
Chase Daniel QB Ankle LP FP FP ------

Armstead had offseason surgery and was not expected to be ready for the start of the season, so the Saints will be starting a rookie, Ryan Ramczyk, at the left tackle spot in this one. That’s the biggest injury on the list for the Saints to be sure.

Now, a look at the home team.

Minnesota Vikings Injury Report

Player Position Injury Thursday Friday Saturday Monday Status
Player Position Injury Thursday Friday Saturday Monday Status
Danny Isidora G Knee DNP LP LP Out
Tramaine Brock CB Groin LP LP LP Questionable
Brian Robison DE Groin LP LP FP -----
Marcus Sherels CB Foot FP FP FP -----
Anthony Harris S Quad FP FP FP -----

If Brock can’t go on Monday night, I would assume that we might see a lot of Terence Newman at the slot corner position with Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes on the outside. Isidora was going to be a backup, so that’s not a huge loss at this point. . .at least, hopefully it isn’t. The other three players on the report have no injury designation, as there is no “probable” anymore, so it appears that they’re good to go for this one.

That’s a look at the injury reports for this Monday night’s contest, folks. We will have more for you on this matchup as we move closer to kickoff.
