Minnesota Vikings at Houston Texans: Final injury reports for both teams

A bit of good news for the Vikings

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

UPDATE: The Vikings have announced that Kris Boyd has been downgraded to OUT for tomorrow’s game. He was listed as “doubtful.”

In addition the team has declared that WR Tajae Sharpe will also be out with an illness. I know what you’re probably thinking. Let’s hope it’s not that.

Original story below.


The final injury reports are out for the Minnesota Vikings and the Houston Texans heading into Sunday’s contest at NRG Stadium in Houston. Let’s take a look at both injury reports and sort everything out.

We’ll start, as we generally do, with the visiting team.

Minnesota Vikings Week 4 Injury Report

Player Position Injury Wednesday Thursday Friday Sunday Status

Mike Hughes CB Neck DNP DNP DNP Out
Kris Boyd CB Hamstring DNP LP LP Doubtful
Cameron Dantzler CB Rib LP LP FP --
Oli Udoh OT Finger -- LP FP --

It appears that the Vikings are going to, once again, be down two cornerbacks when they take on the Texans. Mike Hughes will miss Sunday’s game, having already been ruled out, and it doesn’t appear as though Kris Boyd will be ready to go either. On the plus side, it appears that the Vikings are ready to get Cameron Dantzler back into the lineup. Dantzler started the opener against Green Bay and then missed two consecutive games, but he’s got a clean bill of health for Sunday.

Now, on to the home team.

Houston Texans Week 4 Injury Report

Player Position Injury Wednesday Thursday Friday Sunday Status
Player Position Injury Wednesday Thursday Friday Sunday Status
Cullen Gillaspia RB Hamstring LP LP LP Questionable
Peter Kalambayi LB Hamstring LP LP LP Questionable
Zach Cunningham LB Groin LP LP FP --
Will Fuller WR Hamstring -- LP FP --
P.J. Hall DT Groin LP LP FP --
Duke Johnson RB Ankle LP FP FP --
Lonnie Johnson Jr. CB Illness -- LP FP --
Charles Omenihu DE Knee -- LP FP --

The Texans have not officially ruled anyone out for Sunday’s game, listing only two players as questionable and none as doubtful or out. It appears that they’ll be a fairly healthy team heading into Sunday’s action.

Those are your final injury reports for the Vikings and the Texans going into Sunday afternoon’s Week 4 matchup. We’ll have more on this one as we inch closer to kickoff.
