We’re ninety minutes from kickoff at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, and the Carolina Panthers and Minnesota Vikings have both released their inactive lists for this afternoon’s contest. Let’s take a look at who will be watching this one from the sidelines, starting with the visiting team.

Carolina Panthers

  • OL Dennis Daley
  • S Sam Franklin
  • QB Will Grier
  • CB Donte Jackson
  • OT Greg Little
  • RB Christian McCaffrey

No significant surprises for the Panthers on their inactive list. McCaffrey had been ruled out yesterday. The Panthers do get offensive tackle Russell Okung back in the lineup. He had missed the last four games for Carolina.

And now, on to the home team.

Minnesota Vikings

  • DE Jordan Brailford
  • OL Ezra Cleveland
  • LS Austin Cutting
  • CB Dylan Mabin
  • WR K.J. Osborn
  • S Curtis Riley
  • TE Irv Smith Jr.

The shakeup on special teams continues, as now it’s K.J. Osborn’s turn to take a seat. Andrew DePaola has also replaced Austin Cutting at long snapper again. This is the second time DePaola has been elevated from the practice squad in this capacity, so the Vikings are going to have a decision to make here soon.

Those are your inactive lists for today’s contest, ladies and gentlemen. The discussion thread for the first quarter of play will be hitting the site at right around 11:00 AM Central time.
