Minnesota Vikings Injury Report: Team is healthy heading to Green Bay

There is only one player ruled out for Sunday Through the preseason and one game, the Minnesota Vikings are about as healthy as anyone could expect as they head into their big early season showdown with the Green Bay Packers. Although DE Everson Griffen appeared on the injury report yesterday with a toe, he’ll play. CB Mac Alexander, who missed last week’s opener, and starting CB Trae Waynes, who went out in the second quarter with a knee injury, will also play.

Starting nickel CB Mackensie Alexander was inactive due to an ankle injury, suffered midway through the preseason, so that meant first round pick Mike Hughes would get some extensive action in his first NFL game. Then in the first half, starting LCB Trae Waynes went out with a knee injury and didn’t return.

Cornerback Xavier Rhodes listed questionable to play for Vikings vs. 49ers

Ahead of the Vikings’ season opener on Sunday against the 49ers, cornerback Xavier Rhodes has been deemed questionable to play after he was limited in practices all week due to a hamstring injury.

The Vikings will likely be without cornerback Mackensie Alexander, who practiced twice this week on a limited basis for the first time since his Aug. 18 left ankle injury that had him in a walking boot last month. Without Alexander in the slot, rookie corner Mike Hughes...
