We’ve gotten the final injury reports for both teams leading up to Sunday afternoon’s game at U.S. Bank Stadium between the Minnesota Vikings and the Arizona Cardinals. We’ll get to the Vikings’ injury report in a bit, but we’ll start with the visiting side.

The Cardinals haven’t ruled any of their players as “out” of Sunday’s contest, but they do have six players listed as “questionable,” and among them are a lot of offensive linemen.

Arizona presently has three offensive linemen listed as “questionable,” and all three of them are starters, including both of their starting tackles. Left tackle D.J. Humphries (knee), left guard Mike Iupati (shoulder), and right tackle Andre Smith (hamstring) were all pretty limited in practice this week. None of the three practiced on Wednesday, and Iupati and Smith didn’t practice on Thursday, either. All three of them were limited in Friday’s final practice before Sunday’s game.

Two defensive starters for the Cardinals were also listed as questionable, as defensive end Markus Golden (knee) and defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche (foot) were limited in Friday’s practice. Golden practiced all week, albeit in a limited capacity, while Nkemdiche was missing from Wednesday’s session.

Overall, the Cardinals have 14 players listed on their injury report. All of the eight players that are not listed as questionable were full participants in Friday’s practice and were not given an injury designation.

Here is the complete injury report for the Cardinals. We’ll be along with the Vikings’ injury report momentarily.
