We are now under ninety minutes from kickoff of today’s contest between the Minnesota Vikings and the Philadelphia Eagles. Both teams have released their inactive lists, so let’s see who will be sitting out of today’s contest.

As always, we start with the visiting team.

Minnesota Vikings

  • DE Tashawn Bower
  • RB Dalvin Cook
  • LB Devante Downs
  • DE Everson Griffen
  • CB Marcus Sherels
  • QB Kyle Sloter
  • CB Trae Waynes

Rookie cornerback Mike Hughes will get his first NFL start in place of Waynes this afternoon. Latavius Murray will be the starter at running back in place of Cook, and Stephen Weatherly will continue to start at defensive end in Griffen’s absence. Rookie defensive lineman Jalyn Holmes is active today for the first time in his NFL career.

And now, on to the home team.

Philadelphia Eagles

  • DE Derek Barnett
  • OT Jordan Mailata
  • DT Haloti Ngata
  • G Matt Pryor
  • QB Nate Sudfeld
  • RB Darren Sproles
  • G Chance Warmack

Ngata is a bit of a surprise, even though he was listed as “questionable” on the Eagles’ final injury report. His absence will affect the Eagles’ defensive line depth a bit. Will it be enough to get the Vikings’ run game going in any way? We shall see.

There are your inactive lists, folks. The Open Thread for the first quarter will be up at approximately half past 2, Central time.
