The Minnesota Vikings released their injury report for Thursday and it showed a little bit of improvement.
CB Akayleb Evans (calf): Did not practice
RB Alexander Mattison: (concussion): Limited
ILB Brian Asamoah (ankle): Limited
TE T.J. Hockenson (ribs): Limited
QB Nick Mullens (back): Limited
QB Josh Dobbs (ankle): Full
QB Jaren Hall (concussion): Full
DE Dean Lowry (groin): Full
WR K.J. Osborn (concussion): Full
G Chris Reed (foot): Full
There were three changes from yesterday’s report. Greg Joseph was removed after missing practice on Wednesday due to a personal matter. Hall improved to a full participant and Mattison improved to a limited participant. Both players are hoping to be removed from concussion protocol before Sunday’s game.
The biggest concern is Evans still not practicing with his calf injury. If he is unable to go, we would be seeing a substantial amount of both Andrew Booth Jr. and Mekhi Blackmon. We also would likely see Joejuan Williams get elevated from the practice squad.
Friday’s injury report will hopefully have more clarity and less names.
