Miami Dolphins at Minnesota Vikings: Inactive lists for both teams

Who will be sitting this one out?

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Indianapolis Colts Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

We are less than ninety minutes away from kickoff at U.S. Bank Stadium, ladies and gentlemen, and both the Miami Dolphins and your Minnesota Vikings have released their inactive lists for this afternoon’s contest. Let’s see who will be sitting this one out for both sides.

As always, we start with the visiting squad

Miami Dolphins

  • QB David Fales
  • WR Isaiah Ford
  • CB Xavien Howard
  • C Hroniss Grasu
  • G Isaac Asiata
  • OT Zach Sterup
  • DE Jonathan Woodard

Howard, the AFC’s leader in interceptions, was listed as “doubtful” in Friday’s final injury report, so it’s no surprise that he’s not out there. His absence should open things up considerably for the Vikings’ offense, particularly Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen.

And now, on to the home team.

Minnesota Vikings

  • WR Chad Beebe
  • RB Mike Boone
  • DE Tashawn Bower
  • LB Devante Downs
  • CB Craig James
  • C Brett Jones
  • QB Kyle Sloter

After missing four games, tight end David Morgan is up and back in the lineup for the Vikings in this one. If the team wants to get the run game going, his presence could end up being huge.

All three of the players the Vikings listed as “questionable” on Friday’s final injury report. . .Morgan, Mike Remmers, and Sheldon Richardson. . .are active for the Vikings in this one, making them just about as healthy as they’ve been all season.

Those are your inactive lists for today’s game, folks! We will have the Open Thread for the first quarter of play up and running at 11:00 AM Central.
