Jonathan Bullard highlights Vikings inactives

The Minnesota Vikings entered the weekend with only one player on the injury report in defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard with an illness. He appeared on the report on Friday in a similar way to D.J. Wonnum and, just like Wonnum, will not play on Sunday as he headlines the Vikings inactive list.

Early in the week, it was Jalen Nailor with a hamstring injury. After practicing in full on both Wednesday and Thursday, he was taken off the report and will play on Sunday.

The inactive list doesn’t have any surprises. Chris Reed, Vederian Lowe and Esezi Otomewo have been inactive for every game thus far this season and Luiji Vilain only appeared in the week six contest against the Dolphins.

After signing with the Vikings during the bye week, Benton Whitley is also inactive keeping the trend of the only activating four edge rushers.

Nose tackle Khyiris Tonga is active for the first time as a Minnesota Viking and will backup Harrison Phillips.

The Cardinals’ inactives are very advantageous for the Vikings, as three of the starters on the offensive line were declared inactive.
