Vikings at Packers Final Injury Reports

The Minnesota Vikings are looking like a pretty healthy squad considering it’s Week 16.

Cornerback Tramaine Brock is the only Viking listed as out for Saturday’s game. He did not practice this week due to a foot injury. Meanwhile, starting safety Andrew Sendejo has battled injuries throughout the season and is listed as questionable. His backup, Anthony Harris, has played well when called into action and could see some playing time Saturday if Sendejo is unable to play.

Nickel cornerback Mackensie Alexander missed last week’s game against the Bengals with a rib injury. However, Alexander practiced in full Thursday so he appears to be good to go.

Starting left tackle Riley Reiff is working his way back from an ankle injury he suffered two weeks ago in the Carolina Panthers game. Rashod Hill has been Reiff’s replacement. Will Reiff be able to return for his first Vikings/Packers game at Lambeau Field as a member of the purple? According to Pioneer Press writer Chris Tomasson the team is hopeful, but don’t expect the Vikings to push it if he’s not 100%.

The Packers, meanwhile, will be without their star quarterback and leading receiver. Aside from missing their two offensive studs in Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams, they may also be without some key defenders. Starting linebacker Nick Perry is listed as doubtful and Clay Matthews is questionable. Starting cornerback Davon House is also listed as questionable, as is starting right guard Jahri Evans. Both would be significant losses for the Packers if they are unable to play.

Last week the Vikings offense took advantage of Cincinnati’s injuries on defense, particularly at linebacker. The group was able to open up holes all day in the passing game, especially for running backs Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon.

Here’s a look at the injury reports for each team.
