The Vikings have announced their actives/inactives list for tonight:

NAME POSITION INJURY WED. THU. FRI. STATUS GAMEDAY
Floyd, Sharrif DT Shoulder DNP LP LP Probable Active
Greenway, Chad LB Hand/Rib DNP DNP LP Questionable Active
Loadholt, Phil T Ankle DNP LP LP Probable Active
Mauti, Michael LB Foot FP FP FP Probable Active
Patterson, Cordarrelle WR Chest LP FP Probable Active

Watts, Brandon LB Knee LP LP LP Questionable Inactive
Johnson, Charles WR None Inactive
Prater, Shaun CB None Inactive
Yankey, David OG None Inactive
Ponder, Christian QB None Inactive
Chricton, Scott DE None Inactive

Chad Greenway is playing, as many people expected. There will only be four receivers active on gameday, but that shouldn’t have a huge impact, even with Patterson’s chest injury. The Vikings will have a lot of offensive linemen active (eight, compared to the usual seven).

The Saints inactives:

NAME POSITION INJURY WED. THU. FRI. STATUS GAMEDAY
Ball, Marcus S Hamstring DNP DNP DNP Out Inactive
Goodwin, Jonathan C Elbow DNP LP FP Probable Active
Hawthorne, David ILB Ankle DNP DNP DNP Out Inactive
Ingram, Mark RB Hand DNP DNP DNP Out Inactive
Knox, Kyle ILB Ankle LP FP Probable Active
Lelito, Tim C/G Back DNP Questionable Active
Lofton, Curtis ILB Shoulder LP LP FP Probable Active
Lorig, Erik FB Ankle DNP DNP DNP Out Inactive
Morgan, Joseph WR Knee FP Probable Active
Toon, Nick WR None Inactive
Jenkins, John NT None Inactive
Jean-Baptiste, Stanley CB None Inactive

There aren’t any surprises from the Saints, but without starters Mark Ingram and David Hawthorne, the game is marginally easier for the Vikings.
