The inactives list is out for both teams in the Lions-Vikings game, including marquee players like Teddy Bridgewater and Harrison Smith (in) and Chad Greenway, Reggie Bush and Calvin Johnson (out). For the Vikings:
A large injury report, but no real worries, as nearly every play who is active, save Harrison Smith, participated fully in practice on Friday. Nothing hugely unexpected: the Vikings were optimistic about Harrison Smith this last week and pessimistic about Chad Greenway. With Kyle Rudolph and Greenway out, the Vikings have said that Rhett Ellison and Gerald Hodges are the starters.
Teddy Bridgewater is active and starting, like Vikings fans hoped.
It looks like Zach Line was promoted to see the bench.
For the Lions:
Huge deal: the Lions are without star receiver and potent running weapon Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush, which figures to be a huge downer for them. The Lions are 1-4 without Calvin (though admittedly that may not mean a lot—they are 36-74 with him) and one of those wins (and one loss) was against Minnesota. With the Lions performing this well despite their 3-2 record, this may not turn out to be the easy game fans were hoping for, even with Johnson and Bush out, but it may be easier than they would have gotten all year, especially at home—so they need to find a way to take advantage.
