We’re starting to get the final injury reports for both teams leading up to Sunday’s game in Philadelphia between the Minnesota Vikings and the Philadelphia Eagles. We’ll go over the injury report for the purple here first.

The Vikings have declared four players to be out for Sunday’s game, and the biggest one (other than Everson Griffen, who remains sidelined) is cornerback Trae Waynes. Waynes suffered a concussion in last Thursday’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams, and as of Friday was still in the league’s concussion protocol. He had not practiced all week, and he will not see the field on Sunday.

Also “out” for the Vikings on Sunday are defensive end Tashawn Bower (ankle) and Marcus Sherels (ribs). Bower was a limited practice participant on Wednesday before not practicing on Thursday or Friday. Sherels was limited all week, and will miss his third consecutive game.

Only one player for the Vikings is listed as “questionable,” but he’s an important one. Running back Dalvin Cook, who was a limited participant in practice on Friday (after not practicing earlier in the week) will be a “game-time decision” for Sunday’s contest.

The full injury report for the Vikings for this Sunday’s game is below. We’ll have the Philadelphia injury report here in just a bit.
