On Saturday, the Minnesota Vikings will return to U.S. Bank Stadium for the second week in a row to see if they can at least deliver a respectable performance in a preseason matchup with the Indianapolis Colts.

The Vikings are coming off a 27-point loss in their preseason opener against the Denver Broncos last week. With more of their top players expected to be on the field for some actual snaps this week, Minnesota should be able to avoid getting blown out against the Colts.

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer likely doesn’t care if his team comes away with a win over Indianapolis on Saturday. Zimmer just wants the guys on Minnesota’s roster to show a little more effort than whatever they put out on the field last week against Denver.

Minnesota Vikings Injury Report vs. Indianapolis Colts for Preseason Week 2:

On Monday, Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson returned to practice after missing some time with a sprained AC joint. However, Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer said on Tuesday that he doesn’t expect Jefferson to play in Saturday’s game against the Colts.

Don’t expect Vikings tight end Tyler Conklin to suit up for the matchup with Indianapolis either. Conklin left Minnesota’s practice on Monday with a minor hamstring injury according to the Star Tribune’s Ben Goessling.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Indianapolis Colts Prediction for Preseason Week 2:

As was the case last week, making a wager on the moneyline is your best bet to win any sort of cash when gambling on a preseason game due to the unpredictability of these contests.

Even after a 27-point loss last week, the Vikings still seem like the team with the best chance to get a win on Saturday. Minnesota is expected to have actual starters on the field this week and they’ll be going up against a Colts team that is currently rolling with two inexperienced quarterbacks at the top of their depth chart in Jacob Eason and Sam Ehlinger.
