Vikings final injury report: Trae Waynes OUT, Eric Kendricks questionable

New, comments

It sounds like Kendricks will play, though

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

With game time less than 48 hours away, the Minnesota Vikings have released their final injury report, and while there was a little bit of good news on Saturday’s report, it’s balanced out by some pretty bad news.

The good news is that linebacker Eric Kendricks returned to practice on Saturday after sitting out the previous two sessions. He’s listed as questionable by the team, but head coach Mike Zimmer sounds optimistic that Kendricks will suit up on Monday night.

The bad news is that the Vikings will still be down a starter on defense, as cornerback Trae Waynes did not practice on Saturday, not having been cleared after the concussion he suffered in last Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots, and has been listed as “out” for Monday’s game. He will join wide receiver Chad Beebe (hamstring) and tight end David Morgan (knee) on the inactive list for Monday, as neither Beebe nor Morgan practiced all week, either.

It sounds like rookie Holton Hill will get another start, this time in place of Waynes.

Here is the full injury report for the Vikings leading into Monday’s game.
