We are ninety minutes from kickoff at Bank of America Stadium, and your Minnesota Vikings have released their inactive list for today’s game, as have the Carolina Panthers. Let’s take a look at who will be sitting out today for both sides, starting with the visiting team.

Minnesota Vikings

  • TE Ben Ellefson (knee)
  • DE Patrick Jones II
  • QB Kellen Mond
  • DT Michael Pierce (elbow)
  • WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette (toe)
  • LB Chazz Surratt

Smith-Marsette was not given an injury designation on the final report and practiced fully as the week went on, but has been scratched for today’s game. Ameer Abdullah will continue to handle kick return duties for the Vikings. No other big surprises on the injury report for Minnesota.

And now, on to the home team.

Carolina Panthers

  • RB Spencer Brown
  • CB C.J. Henderson (shoulder)
  • DT Phil Hoskins
  • DE Daryl Johnson
  • LB Kamal Martin (concussion)
  • LB Shaq Thompson (foot)

Running back Christian McCaffrey is not listed by the Panthers on their injury report, but that’s because the team placed him on injured reserve on Saturday afternoon, putting him on the shelf for three more weeks at a minimum. No other big surprises on the inactive list for Carolina.

Those are the inactive lists for today’s matchup between the Panthers and the Vikings, folks. We’ll have the first Open Thread for this afternoon’s contest dropping at the top of the hour, 11:00 AM Central time.
