We are just ninety minutes away from kickoff at Ford Field, and both the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions have released their inactive lists for this afternoon’s contest. Let’s take a look at who will be sitting this one out for both teams.

We’ll start, as always, with the visiting team.

Minnesota Vikings

  • LB Ben Gedeon
  • DT Jalyn Holmes
  • C Brett Jones
  • G Dru Samia
  • CB/PR Marcus Sherels
  • OT Olisaemeka Udoh
  • DT Armon Watts

Sherels being out is, obviously, a surprise. He was not listed on the injury report this week, and I’m not sure why he’s not active for today’s game. If we get more information, we will update this story.

And now, on to the home team.

Detroit Lions

  • G Oday Aboushi
  • G Ben Benzschawel
  • QB David Blough
  • RB Tra Carson
  • DT Mike Daniels
  • DT Da’Shawn Hand
  • CB Amani Oruwariye

The absence of both Daniels and Hand can only be viewed as a positive for the Vikings’ offense, particularly as it pertains to the running game. Hand practiced all week for the Lions but is inactive for them today.

And there are your inactive lists for both sides, ladies and gentlemen. We’ll have our Open Thread for the first quarter of play up on the site at approximately 11:00 AM Central time.
