Vikings Week 17 Final Injury Report

The Minnesota Vikings hit the road for a Week 17 game with the Green Bay Packers on New Year’s Day, the 16th regular season game of the 2022 season.

The Vikings defeated the New York Giants in Week 16, while the Packers beat the Miami Dolphins on Christmas, 20-12. Green Bay, now 7-8 through 15 games, has a 26% chance of reaching the postseason. The Vikings can finish no worse than the NFC’s No. 3 seed and own the two-seed at the moment.

The Vikings injury report is actually quite nice.

Green Bay has two players formally on the injury report.
