The initial injury reports are out for both the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions before their Week 9 matchup at U.S. Bank Stadium. As has been the case for most of this season, the list for the purple is heavily populated with cornerbacks, but let’s take a look at the Lions first.

Did Not Participate

  • RB Jamal Agnew (ribs)
  • OT Taylor Decker (back)
  • WR Kenny Golladay (hip)
  • OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai (foot)
  • DB Tracy Walker (foot)

Limited Participation

  • G Joe Dahl (back)
  • TE T.J. Hockenson (toe)
  • LB Christian Jones (knee)
  • CB Daryl Roberts (hip/groin)
  • DT Danny Shelton (wrist)
  • CB Desmond Trufant (hamstring)

Full Participation

No players listed

The Lions have also placed DE Trey Flowers on injured reserve, and we mentioned yesterday that it’s going to come down to the wire with QB Matthew Stafford after the Lions placed him on the COVID-19 list yesterday. Not having Golladay would be a huge boost for the Vikings, particularly given the state of their cornerbacks.

Speaking of which, let’s take a look at the Vikings’ injury report.

Did Not Participate

  • CB Cameron Dantzler (concussion)
  • CB Mark Fields II (chest)
  • CB Holton Hill (foot)

Limited Participation

  • WR Dan Chisena (hip)
  • CB Harrison Hand (hamstring)

Full Participation

Yes, that’s four cornerbacks on the injury report once again. As we’ve reported, Mike Zimmer says that Dantzler has a “shot” to play this week, but he’s unsurprisingly in the concussion protocol after what happened in Green Bay on Sunday. Fields is almost certainly going to be out, too. One player that is not on the injury list is Kris Boyd, who was injured at the end of the victory over Green Bay but was, apparently, just cramping up and did not suffer a serious injury after all.

That’s a look at the week’s first injury report for the Lions and the Vikings. We’ll continue bringing you the new injury reports when they’re available.
