Friday is final injury report day for most teams around the National Football League, and the Las Vegas Raiders and your Minnesota Vikings are no exception. Both teams have released their final injury reports ahead of Sunday’s game in Vegas, so let’s take a look at what both teams are looking at on the injury front.

Minnesota Vikings Week 14 Injury Report

Player Position Injury Wednesday Thursday Friday Sunday Status
Player Position Injury Wednesday Thursday Friday Sunday Status
Ed Ingram G Hip --- LP LP Questionable
Theo Jackson S Illness DNP FP FP Questionable
Akayleb Evans CB Calf FP FP FP ---
Justin Jefferson WR Hamstring FP FP FP ---
Kene Nwangwu RB Concussion LP FP FP ---
Najee Thompson CB Knee LP FP FP ---
Khyiris Tonga DL Knee FP FP FP ---

We mentioned Ingram’s injury yesterday, and he’s one of just two Vikings who were given an injury designation ahead of Sunday’s game. Again, if Ingram is unable to go on Sunday, Blake Brandel will get the start at right guard in his spot. The only other player that was given a designation by the Vikings is Theo Jackson, who was dealing with an illness early in the week but was a full participant in the last two practice sessions of the week.

Justin Jefferson officially has no injury designation, as expected, nor does Akayleb Evans, who missed the two games heading into the bye for the Vikings but appears to finally be over his calf injury.

Las Vegas Raiders Week 14 Injury Report

Player Position Injury Wednesday Thursday Friday Sunday Status

Kolton Miller OT Shoulder DNP DNP DNP Out
Maxx Crosby DE Knee DNP DNP LP Questionable
Brandon Facyson DB Shin LP LP FP Questionable
Kana'l Mauga ILB Knee LP LP FP Questionable
Daniel Carlson K Illness --- DNP FP ---
Malcolm Koonce DE Ankle --- LP FP ---

Miller is the only player for either side that has definitively been declared out for Sunday, and the Raiders will start Justin Herron in his spot, according to the team’s official depth chart. Crosby was limited in practice on Friday but has declared that he’s going to be out there on Sunday afternoon. We’ll have to see just how limited he is by the injury he aggravated going into the bye week, even after a week off. Nothing else of any real significance to report on the Raiders’ side of things.

Those are your final injury reports heading into Sunday’s game in Vegas, folks. We’ll have more coverage of this one for you as we get closer to kickoff.
