Who’s out for Week 14 between the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football? Here is the full injury report for the contest.
In Week 14 of the 2018 NFL season, all eyes will be on the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks when they face off in a prime-time matchup on Monday Night Football where quite a bit will be on the line.
Both teams are in the playoff hunt, but neither are atop their division. For the Vikings, there is still a chance they could claim the NFC North. On the other hand, Seattle is out of luck in that department since the Rams already have the NFC West crown.
Both teams will need as much talent on the field as possible in order to get a win. The full injury reports for both teams have been released on the official website of the Vikings, so let’s see who’s out and who has a chance of not suiting up on Monday!
- – none –
- Eric Kendricks, LB – rib
The Vikings will miss the services of cornerback Trae Waynes, but they should have Xavier Rhodes, Mackensie Alexander, and Holton Hill available to pick up the slack while he continues to recover from his concussion.
Meanwhile, other tight ends will be tasked with picking up blocking duties once again with David Morgan out. Kyle Rudolph has really picked up his game in this area during Morgan’s time out, but his return this season would be nice.
Chad Beebe would likely have been a healthy scratch for this game even if he was good to go in order to count toward the inactive players. Also, Kendricks should be good to go, but we’ve seen questionable individuals not be able to suit up on game day in the past.
Xavier Rhodes and Stefon Diggs being removed from the injury report completely is a great sign that both those players will be close to 100 percent on game day.
- K.J. Wright, LB – knee
- D.J. Fluker, OL – hamstring
The Seahawks will be without Wright, their starting outside linebacker, for this contest but should see Austin Calitro fill in during his absence. It’s also not looking good for Fluker, who has been the team’s starting right guard.
Baldwin would be a big scratch if he is unable to go, but it’s Penny who might be the biggest loss if he can’t play. Last week, the running back had 65 yards and a touchdown against the 49ers, including one 20-yard scamper for a score.
Do you think the Minnesota Vikings will be able to win on Monday Night Football even without these three players being able to suit up? Let us know your thoughts on the game against the Seattle Seahawks in the comments below.
