It is not pretty a ideal problem, but the Vikings are near total health and fitness. The final injuries report of the 7 days implies that Ed Donatell’s protection will need to have to function devoid of Dalvin Tomlinson, who has been acquiring a powerful season. Cameron Dantzler and Jalen Nailor are both questionable.
The hope, of training course, is that Dantzler and Nailor will both equally be equipped to go. Changing Nailor is not as substantially of a issue as Dantzler. The latter is a single of the team’s starting corners. If he simply cannot go, then the task will fall to Akayleb Evans, Kris Boyd, and/or Andrew Booth Jr. to enjoy reverse Patrick Peterson.
Nailor is a rookie receiver who arrived as a result of the 6th round. It is pretty probable he will close up possessing an great occupation, but he’s at present this team’s 5th receiver. The offense will generally be leaning on Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, and K.J. Osborn. Oh, and there may have been a noteworthy trade to bring in a further pass catcher:
Although in the vicinity of complete health, the Vikings will still will need to defeat not owning Tomlinson. Supplied his dimensions and placement, most supporters will possible believe of how he helps the operate defense. Do not neglect, however, that he’s also capable of rushing the passer. He has a 80.7 pass hurry score on PFF, the 8th-very best mark among the DTs.
Harrison Phillips will continue on to get the start off in Donatell’s defense. Beside him will typically be some combination of Ross Blacklock, James Lynch, and Jonathan Bullard.
Washington won’t have Jahan Dotson, Cole Holcomb, David Mayo, or J.D. McKissic to enable them on Sunday. Star edge rusher Chase Young also is not accessible, generating lifestyle a lot easier for Brian O’Neill and Christian Darrisaw (and Kirk Cousins, for that make any difference).
If factors go as envisioned, Minnesota will climb to 7-1. That getting mentioned, we know that sports activities are unpredictable Minnesota will need to receive the victory. Thankfully, the Vikings are around entire wellness.
The sport will just take area at 12 p.m. CT.
