Who are a few notable Minnesota Vikings players that could be back in the lineup for the Week 11 matchup with the Green Bay Packers?

Whenever it comes time to take on the Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings know they are always in for a battle with their NFC North rival.

This will be the case on Sunday when the Vikings host the Packers for a Week 11 matchup inside U.S. Bank Stadium. Green Bay has won eight of their last nine games and Minnesota will be looking to get their record back to .500 for the first time since Week 6.

Making things more difficult for the Vikings will be the absence of players like defensive end Danielle Hunter and defensive tackle Michael Pierce. Both are currently on injured reserve and Hunter is not expected to return to the field at any point during the remainder of the season.

However, a few players could be returning to the lineup for Minnesota this week that haven’t suited up in the team’s last few games. Who are some of the most notable players that could be back for the Vikings when they attempt to get a big win over the Packers on Sunday?
