We’re right around ninety minutes from kickoff at Ford Field in Detroit, and both the Minnesota Vikings and the Detroit Lions have released their inactive lists for this one. Let’s see who will be sitting this one out for both sides.

Minnesota Vikings

  • QB Jaren Hall (emergency QB)
  • G Ed Ingram
  • CB Mekhi Blackmon
  • DB Theo Jackson
  • CB Byron Murphy
  • OT Brian O’Neill
  • DT Jaquelin Roy

The Vikings declared six players as “out” on their final injury report, one of whom (WR Jalen Nailor) they placed on injured reserve on Saturday. Throw in the addition of Hall as the emergency quarterback makes the inactive list a pretty simple one for the Vikings for today’s game. Ingram was ruled out during pregame warmups, which is not something Nick Mullens was wanting to hear, I’m guessing.

Detroit Lions

  • DL John Cominsky
  • CB Steven Gilmore
  • LB Charles Harris
  • QB Hendon Hooker (emergency QB)
  • DT Brodric Martin
  • WR Jameson Williams
  • TE Brock Wright

Williams and Wright had been declared out for the Lions on their final injury report. The team had also declared LB James Houston as “out” but his name doesn’t appear on their inactive list anywhere. Again, it will be interesting to see how the Lions balance things between playing starters and giving some guys a bit of a break heading into Wild Card weekend.

Those are the inactive lists for today’s game, ladies and gentlemen. Our first Open Thread of the day will be ready and waiting for you at around 11:00 AM Central time, and we hope to see a lot of folks there for the season finale!
