Here’s a quick look at the inactive players announced for tonight’s Week 4 matchup between the Minnesota Vikings (1-1-1) and Los Angeles Rams (3-0).


Courtney Cronin of ESPN reported Vikings running back Dalvin Cook is active and will play tonight. Since Cook is dealing with a hamstring injury, he’ll likely be on a “pitch count” with Latavius Murray getting a healthy dose of snaps. In addition to Cook and Murray, Roc ThomasMike Boone and C.J. Ham are also dressing meaning all five Vikings running backs will be in pads. Starting left tackle Riley Reiff is also active and will play this evening.

The Vikings inactives include:

  • QB Kyle Sloter (healthy scratch)
  • CB Marcus Sherels (ribs)
  • S Anthony Harris (hamstring)
  • G Bryan Witzmann (healthy scratch)
  • DT Jalyn Holmes (healthy scratch)
  • DT Tom Johnson (healthy scratch)
  • DE Everson Griffen (knee/not injury related)


According to Steve Wyche of the NFL Network, Rams cornerback Marcus Peters will be active tonight. This is a bit of a surprise considering Peters sustained a calf injury on Sunday. He was expected to miss a couple of weeks. Instead, he’ll play tonight.

The Rams inactives include:

  • K Greg Zuerlein
  • LB Mark Barron
  • RB John Kelly
  • WR JoJo Natson
  • LB Dominique Easley
  • DT Sebastian Joseph-Day
  • DT Tanzel Smart
