Vikings list players that will not suit up against Colts

It’s a whole lot shorter than last week’s list

NFL: Minnesota Vikings OTA Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Just like they did last week, the Minnesota Vikings have released their list of players that will not take the field when they kick off against the Indianapolis Colts less than an hour from now at U.S. Bank Stadium. Thankfully, this week’s list is a whole lot shorter than last week’s. Here it is.

  • LB Anthony Barr
  • TE Tyler Conklin
  • OT Christian Darrisaw
  • DE Danielle Hunter
  • WR Justin Jefferson
  • DE Patrick Jones II
  • DT James Lynch
  • RB Kene Nwangwu
  • G Dru Samia
  • QB Nate Stanley
  • WR Dede Westbrook
  • S Xavier Woods

That means that a large majority of the starters (or projected starters) will be taking the field this evening. There aren’t a lot of surprises on the “inactive” list, given what we know about which players have been dealing with injuries and things of that nature. Hunter may be a mild surprise, but I’m assuming that the team is just being extra careful with him before the games start to count.

We’ll be watching and listening when things get underway from U.S. Bank Stadium here at 7:00 PM Central. The Open Thread for the first half will be up about half an hour before kickoff, so if you’ll be following the action, come join us!
