Let’s have a look at the final reports

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Los Angeles Rams Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

We have made it all the way to Friday, ladies and gentlemen, and that means it’s time to take a look at the final injury reports for this Sunday’s big NFC North showdown at Soldier Field. Both the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears have put out their final reports, so let’s take a look and see who’s banged up and who will be sitting out on Sunday night.

As always, we start with the visiting team.

David Morgan TE Knee DNP DNP DNP Out
Andrew Sendejo S Groin DNP DNP DNP Out
Anthony Barr LB Hamstring DNP LP LP Questionable
Tom Compton G Knee LP LP FP Questionable
Mike Remmers G Low Back LP LP LP Questionable
Chad Beebe WR Abdomen ------ FP FP ------
Stefon Diggs WR Rib FP FP FP ------
Everson Griffen DE Toe ------ FP FP ------
Linval Joseph DT Ankle/Shoulder FP FP FP ------
Xavier Rhodes CB Foot LP LP FP ------
Adam Thielen WR Low Back/Calf LP LP LP ------

A couple of the bigger ones are, obviously, cornerback Xavier Rhodes returning to practice as a full participant and not being given an injury designation, and wide receiver Stefon Diggs practicing in full all week. Wide receiver Adam Thielen was also not given an injury designation, despite being limited in practices all week.

Anthony Barr, who was limited on Thursday and Friday after not practicing on Monday, is questionable, as are both of the Vikings’ starting guards, Tom Compton and Mike Remmers. Compton has missed the last couple of games, but was a full participant in practice on Friday while Remmers was listed as limited all week long. We’ll have to see what the o-line shuffle looks like for the Vikings on Sunday.

Now, on to the home team. . .and if you blink, you might miss it.

Chicago Bears

Javon Wims WR Knee ------ LP FP Questionable

Yeah, that’s everybody. Three players, all of whom appear to be backups, and only one of whom is listed as out. For a team that had their bye several weeks ago, the Bears appear to be about as healthy as a team can be going into Week 11. The Bears did put Pro Bowl guard Kyle Long on injured reserve a little while back, and that could end up being something that the Vikings can take advantage of if the Bears are still unsettled on the interior of their offensive line.

Those are your injury reports for this week’s big Sunday Night Football contest, folks. We’ll have more coverage of this one as we get closer to kickoff.
