It’s Friday, which means that the Minnesota Vikings have released their final injury report for this Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos at U.S. Bank Stadium. It’s not a terribly pretty report, but there aren’t any real surprises on it, either.
Here’s a full look at things for the purple.
- S Anthony Harris (groin)
- DT Linval Joseph (knee)
- G Josh Kline (concussion)
- WR Adam Thielen (hamstring)
- S Andrew Sendejo (groin)
Nobody else that has appeared on the injury reports this week was given an injury designation, which means they’re all expected to be good to go for Sunday’s contest.
It isn’t surprising to see Joseph, Kline, and Thielen on the list for this week, given the nature of their injuries. Harris was a late addition to the “Did Not Practice” list on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. Hopefully all of those players will be ready to go again after the bye week.
I’m assuming the following changes for the starters for this week:
- Bisi Johnson for Thielen at WR
- Jaleel Johnson for Joseph at DT
- Dakota Dozier for Kline at G
- Jayron Kearse for Harris at S
The Vikings are down four starters this week against the Broncos, ladies and gentlemen. Hopefully they’ll be able to overcome that and get themselves to the bye week at 8-3.
