Minnesota Vikings announce inactives list for season opener

The Minnesota Vikings will be without one of their free agent signings for the season opener.

Outside linebacker Marcus Davenport, who appeared on the injury report late this week, will be inactive for their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Davenport’s injury does not appear to be serious. Instead, his inactive listing might be a byproduct of the timing between suffering the injury and the start of the season.

Undrafted rookie Andre Carter will also be inactive, meaning Benton Whitley, who the Vikings called up from the practice squad, will play.

Other inactives include tight end Nick Muse and Jaquelin Roy. Neither of these inactives is a surprise with the depth at both positions.

The same can be said for offensive tackle David Quessenberry, who the Vikings signed after the preseason.

The team’s final inactive is quarterback Jaren Hall.

Hall’s inactive comes with the designated third quarterback tag. This tag allows Hall to enter the game if quarterbacks Kirk Cousins and Nick Mullens are injured.
