The Minnesota Vikings have released their initial injury report for Sunday night’s game against the Denver Broncos and it’s relatively deep. The Vikings did not practice on Wednesday but held a walkthrough.
CB Akayleb Evans (calf): Did not practice
K Greg Joseph (not injury related-personal matter): Did not practice
RB Alexander Mattison: (concussion): Did not practice
ILB Brian Asamoah (ankle): Limited
QB Jaren Hall (concussion): Limited
TE T.J. Hockenson (ribs): Limited
QB Nick Mullens (back): Limited
QB Josh Dobbs (ankle): Full
DE Dean Lowry (groin): Full
WR K.J. Osborn (concussion): Full
G Chris Reed (foot): Full
The biggest additions to the list are Evans, Mattison and Dobbs. Evans suffered his injury on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. The team has some hope that Mattison will play on Sunday despite not participating in the walkthrough. Dobbs’ ankle is a new injury that wasn’t reported before.
Lowry did see improvement from last week being listed as a full participant. He looks to be on track to play against the Broncos. Asamoah still hasn’t improved from last week. His injury paired with Hicks being hurt explains the Anthony Barr signing.
Thursday’s injury report will tell us more about who will play on Sunday.
