Minnesota had a pretty promising injury report to start Week 15.

The Vikings, while dealing with their share of COVID-19 issues, had a relative clean bill of health. OT Christian Darrisaw was limited, while WR Adam Thielen and LB Eric Kendricks did not participate on Thursday.

On Friday, the injury report got even better. Here is the list:

Limited:

  • OT Christian Darrisaw (ankle)

  • LB Eric Kendricks (low back)

Analysis: Darrisaw is limited for the second consecutive day. Kendricks moved from DNP to limited on Friday, which is a good sign for his possible playing status.

  • WR Adam Thielen (ankle)

Analysis: Thielen missed last game with an ankle injury. Him being DNP still is not great. With his health in question, the Vikings have bulked up their wide receiver depth on the practice squad.
