What would a fall Friday afternoon in Minnesota be without sweating out the week-end injury report for the Minnesota Vikings?
As we have done most of the season, Vikings fans were waiting the tweet from the team to find out the playing status of some of their favorite players for this weekend's game against the Detroit Lions. For this week, the news was both good and bad.
According to the team account, the Vikings will be without LB Anthony Barr, G Tom Compton and RB Roc Thomas who have already been ruled OUT of the Lions game on Sunday.
Dalvin Cook, Stefon Diggs, Riley Reiff, Xavier Rhodes and Andrew Sendejo are listed as questionable.
While still a sizable list, this is mainly good news after Cook, Reiff, Rhodes and Sendejo all sat out last week against the Saints. It doesn't hold the exact percent chance as it once did, but the old adage is that the "questionable" designation is a 50/50 chance of playing. I'll take that with all of those names on the list.
