With Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison inactive, Mike Boone will make his first career start tonight against the Packers.

The Vikings already had ruled out Cook with his chest injury.

They listed Mattison, who has a high-ankle sprain, as questionable. But Mattison will miss a second consecutive game after the Vikings listed him among their inactives.

Ameer Abdullah and C.J. Ham will backup Boone, who had a team-high 13 carries for 56 yards and two touchdowns in the victory over the Chargers last week.

The team’s other inactives are defensive tackle Hercules Mata'afa, offensive guard Dru Samia, offensive guard Oli Udoh, offensive tackle Aviante Collins and defensive tackle Jalyn Holmes.

The Packers are healthy entering tonight’s game. Their inactives are receiver Ryan Grant, running back Dexter Williams, cornerback Tony Brown, cornerback Ka’dar Hollman, offensive tackle Alex Light, offensive tackle John Leglue and tight end Jace Sternberger.

Defensive lineman Dean Lowry, the only player the Packers listed as questionable, is dressed despite an ankle injury.

  1. Well, Vikings fan says Mike Boone is a Hall Of Famer and guaranteed the Vikings will win by at least 14 points.

    Let’s see what happens.👌



  2. Too bad the refs injured cook and mattison. The refs will probably injure Boone tonight as well.

    Every loss in Vikings history has been due to the refs. The vikings would be the league’s only undefeated team with every superbowl win known to man, but the refs keep them out every year.

    The refs are why the vikings have 0 championships.

  3. Boone has fresh legs and ready for a break out game. C.J. Ham is a bull of a fullback, runs hard, blocks well, and is a good pass catcher. Abdullah is speedy, has good moves and can play slot receiver.

  4. I hope Boone makes a name for himself tonight, but the receivers at halftime being honored tonight would setup a really nice areal battle in their name.
