The Vikings’ practice on Tuesday was so light that it wasn’t even a practice at all. Officially, the Vikings didn’t practice. Thus, officially, the injury report was an estimation.

Not practicing if Tuesday’s non-practice would have been an actual practice were cornerback Mackensie Alexander (knee), receiver Stefon Diggs (illness), defensive tackle Linval Joseph (knee), and safety Jayron Kearse (toe, knee). Alexander, who missed Sunday’s win over the Saints, reportedly has had knee surgery.

Fully participating in practice, if there had been a practice, were tight end Tyler Conklin (knee), running back Dalvin Cook (shoulder), guard Josh Kline (elbow), defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo (hamstring), cornerback Xavier Rhodes (ankle, shoulder), defensive tackle Shamar Stephen (knee), and defensive end Stephen Weatherly (foot).

Rhodes injured his shoulder with a high-impact hit on Saints running back Alvin Kamara. Cook’s injury came against the Chargers in Week 15; he missed Week 16 and Week 17. Running back Alexander Mattison, who missed time late in the season with an ankle injury, does not appear on the injury report.

  1. The difference in the 2019/2020 Minnesota Vikings has been their depth with young quality reserves. Their 2019 Draft is the best I can remember in My and the teams Life (we were both born the same year) We need WR depth and OL but it is still better than many years. The UFA’s this year were unbelievable, which with good coaching brings talent out with young players with a huge upside. It is how The Patriots have done it for 2 decades being in the last 5 in picks every year. Minnesota has quietly emulated them. If they can pull off another upset this Saturday I don’t know who can keep them out of the big game. Thanks for the great season guys!!

  2. Get healthy bro, and don’t start throwing tantrums if you don’t see a lot of targets right away.

    This is a rare game where I will be happy with either outcome. Just hope to see both teams at their best, and no big mistakes by the referees.

  3. I remember several Super Bowls in the 80s had lopsided scores because the losing teams had players who caught the flu and they couldn’t perform up to their normally high level. I wonder if the “illness” designation is being used on players who have the flu.

  4. Just so many elite weapons on offense.
    Every game another player goes off.
    I predict this week is Diggs with 8-150-3.
    Vikings are class of the NFL. 49ers are frauds who haven’t played anyone with a D like this and so many O weapons
    Vikings 38
    49ers 10

    It looks good right now but I wouldn’t put it ahead of the 2015 draft. Eric Kendricks, Danielle Hunter, and Stefon Diggs are all stars and Trae Waynes has been a starter for five years.
