Heading into the Minnesota Vikings week one matchup against the Green Bay Packers, the injury report was minimal. The one major question mark was rookie first-round safety Lewis Cine who had aggravated a previous knee injury and was seen at practice with an ice wrap.
When the official inactive list came out, Cine led the way with only five other players joining him in not playing against the Packers.
There really aren’t any major surprises on this list with four of them being rookies selected at the end of day three or undrafted. Seeing Chris Reed on the list is somewhat of a surprise but the Vikings feel comfortable with their depth outside of the former Indianapolis Colt.
The Vikings hope to have Cine back for next Monday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
