Vikings initial injury report: Estimated report for Minnesota

No practice, but there’s still a report

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Even though they did not have an actual practice today, the Minnesota Vikings were still required to put out an injury report as they prepare for Sunday’s matchup against the Houston Texans. So, much the way they do on the Monday before a Thursday game, the Vikings released an “estimated” injury report.

This initial report only has three names on it, which is good. Unfortunately, all three players on it play the same position, which is bad.

Did Not Participate

  • CB Kris Boyd (hamstring)
  • CB Mike Hughes (neck)

Limited Participation

  • CB Cameron Dantzler (rib)

Full Participation

No players listed

Boyd managed to make it through Sunday’s game with Tennessee while dealing with his hamstring issue, but would not have practiced today had the team actually taken the field. Hughes is still dealing with his neck injury, while Dantzler appears to be improving and may be on track to play on Sunday.

The injuries listed would once again leave Jeff Gladney and Holton Hill as the team’s two top corners to start on Sunday. Boyd was the third corner against Tennessee, but his absence would leave the Vikings with either Mark Fields II or rookie Harrison Hand to play that role against Houston.

Here’s what the injury report looks like for the Texans, who actually practiced today.

Did Not Participate

  • DE Charles Omenihu (knee)

Limited Participation

  • LB Zach Cunningham (groin)
  • RB Cullen Gillaspia (knee)
  • DT P.J. Hall (groin)
  • RB Duke Johnson (ankle)
  • LB Peter Kalambayi (hamstring)

Those are your initial injury reports, folks. We’ll be keeping an eye on the injury situation for both teams as we get closer to Sunday.
