We are a little more than an hour from kickoff at U.S. Bank Stadium for the preseason opener between the Denver Broncos and your Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings have released a list of the players that will likely not see action in today’s game, and it’s a pretty long list. Here it is.

  • CB Mackensie Alexander
  • LB Anthony Barr
  • WR Chad Beebe
  • C Garrett Bradbury
  • CB Bashaud Breeland
  • OT Ezra Cleveland
  • TE Tyler Conklin
  • RB Dalvin Cook
  • QB Kirk Cousins
  • OT Christian Darrisaw
  • FB C.J. Ham
  • OT Rashod Hill
  • DE Danielle Hunter
  • WR Justin Jefferson
  • LB Eric Kendricks
  • LB Blake Lynch
  • RB Alexander Mattison
  • OT Brian O’Neill
  • CB Patrick Peterson
  • DT Michael Pierce
  • WR Blake Proehl
  • DT Sheldon Richardson
  • S Harrison Smith
  • TE Irv Smith Jr.
  • QB Nate Stanley
  • WR Adam Thielen
  • DT Dalvin Tomlinson
  • G Oli Udoh
  • LB Nick Vigil
  • WR Dede Westbrook
  • S Xavier Woods

So, pretty much anyone that’s projected to start or be a key reserve won’t be on the field this afternoon. On the bright side, this is going to give a lot of young guys an opportunity to stand out. We’ll see who takes advantage of it.

The Open Thread for the first half of play will be up approximately 30 minutes before kickoff. We hope you’ll join us!
