The Minnesota Vikings will be without a few key players this week when they take the field against the Denver Broncos, including wide receiver Charles Johnson and rotational defensive end Justin Trattou. Johnson left last week’s game with a rib injury, while Trattou was shaken up after suffering a foot injury against the San Diego Chargers.

Johnson’s deactivation — and the questionable status of Jarius Wright — means Vikings fans will get their first look at rookie (preseason) sensation Stefon Diggs, who is active for the first time this season. Other inactive players include:

Phil Loadholt is already done for the season, John Sullivan won’t return to the field until at least the second half of the year, and before the release of today’s inactive list, fans worried left guard Brandon Fusco would miss the Vikings’ Week 3 matchup with the San Diego Chargers.

Fear not — Fusco has cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol, is active for today’s game, and will likely start. Seven other players, however, will not suit up against the Chargers. They include:

Carl: Justin Trattou’s interception
The 27 year-old undrafted four-year veteran from Florida only has one tackle in the stats column this season for the Vikings. The backup defensive end has played a whopping six total snaps, all verse the Lions in week two. Believe it or not though, he stands alone atop they Vikings’ leader board in the interceptions category. Maybe he was just in the right place at the right time, but his fourth quarter pick with just over 12 minutes to play gets my vote for biggest play of the game. With the Vikings up by 13, Stafford targets Eric Ebron in the left flat on a 1st-and-10 from midfield. Trattou didn’t rush the passer, nor did he drop back into coverage. With help from Andrew Sendejo covering the tight end, Trattou was able to simple slid into Stafford’s throwing lane and get his hands up in the air. I’m not sure how he made the catch, but his INT and 11 yard return was huge as it deflated the Lions while setting up the Vikings final scoring drive.
