We are ninety minutes from kickoff at U.S. Bank Stadium between the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Football Giants. Both teams have released their inactive lists for today’s game, so let’s take a quick look at who will be sitting this one out.

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

Minnesota Vikings

  • CB Mackensie Alexander
  • LB Kentrell Brothers
  • WR Davion Davis
  • C Brett Jones
  • DT Hercules Mata’afa
  • OT Olisaemeka Udoh
  • DT Armon Watts

Stefon Diggs is active. I know, I’m as stunned as you are.

(I’m not actually stunned.)

Hercules Mata’afa is a healthy scratch for the second consecutive week, as is Brett Jones. Both of these things confuse me.

And now, on to the home team.

New York Giants

  • RB Saquon Barkley
  • LB Lorenzo Carter
  • LB Tae Davis
  • LB Alec Ogletree
  • G Chad Slade
  • OT Eric Smith
  • QB Alex Tanney

No huge surprises for the Giants on today’s inactive list. We knew that Barkley wasn’t going to play today, but his absence is still pretty significant.

Those are your inactive lists for the Vikings and the Giants leading up to today’s contest, folks. Our first Open Thread of the afternoon will be up and running at approximately 11:00 AM Central time.
