Vikings Week 6 Injury Report

In Sunday’s divisional showdown against the NFC North rival Green Bay Packers (4-1), the Minnesota Vikings (3-2) will be without their starting quarterback and top receiver. Sam Bradford, who has missed four of the past five games, is day-to-day with a knee injury, while Stefon Diggs is nursing a hamstring injury.

Bradford reached a point of being unable to protect himself Monday night against the Chicago Bears, but he did not suffer a new injury in his knee, according to team trainer Eric Sugarman. After missing practice this week, he was officially ruled out by head coach Mike Zimmer Friday.

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are out of the playoff race, the siding is falling off the stadium, planes are skidding off of runways, and the head coach has one eye. Pretty standard with how the 2016 season has gone. We welcomed Eric Eager of Pro Football Focus into the Blue Door Pub Studios to help us limp to the finish line of this Vikings campaign. Eric and I chatted Pro Bowl, the Packers massacre, how the offensive line can be improved (fixed?), the rise of Adam Jerome Thielen, and a whole lot more.

All that and more “I was told there would be no math” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Minnesota Vikings - Green Bay Packers

The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings got stuck on the runway Friday night landing at historic Appleton International Airport. They were also stuck in neutral Friday afternoon at Lambeau Field as they let the Green Bay Packers stomp all over them on Christmas Eve. The Purple are officially eliminated from playoff contention. Not exactly the holiday gift Vikings fans dreamed of, but grab some egg nog and a cookie or two and join us by the fire as we recap.

As is the case every week, but is particularly true this week, the enemy is the Green Bay Packers. The outcome of Sunday night’s matchup will give one of the two teams an early boost in their bid for the NFC North which makes it a very important one on the schedule.

A lot is going on, no doubt, with the quarterback situation and the new stadium… but make no mistake about the goal being the same as it has ever been: Beat Green Bay.

We invited back our old sparring partner, Packer Ranter, for a quick Q&A session with this idea that we’d have a little fun while also learning something about the 2016 version of the Green Bay Packers. I agreed to answer some of their questions, as well, so be sure to keep an eye out for my answers over at Packer Ranter.
