The Minnesota Vikings will be getting a few important players back on defense for their Week 11 contest against the Green Bay Packers.
Coming off a big win over the Chargers in Week 10, the Minnesota Vikings hope to keep the momentum going as they are set to defend U.S. Bank Stadium against the Green Bay Packers in Week 11.
Games between these two teams are always a lot of fun and are highly competitive. However, there are some players who will miss the game on Sunday or are in danger of sitting out on Nov. 21.
Here are the players who were given injury designations for Week 11 according to the official website of the Vikings:
- Wyatt Davis, OL – ankle
- Bashaud Breeland, CB – groin
This is a big week for the Vikings. They are getting back some of their best players on defense including Patrick Peterson, Michael Pierce, and Anthony Barr from injury as well as Harrison Smith from the Covid list.
Wyatt Davis has yet to play a snap on offense but has participated in 23 special teams plays. Meanwhile, Bashaud Breeland was listed as questionable on last week’s injury report and was able to suit up. As long as he didn’t have a setback, he should be on track to start opposite Peterson in the secondary.
*No players were listed as doubtful for Minnesota
Green Bay Packers
- David Bakhtiari, OT – knee
- Aaron Jones, RB – knee
- Malik Taylor, WR – abdomen
- Allen Lazard, WR – shoulder
- Rashan Gary, LB – elbow
- Kingsley Keke, DL – concussion
Aaron Rodgers might be the most recognizable player from the Green Bay Packers but the team definitely won’t operate the same without their star running back Aaron Jones and big-time left tackle David Bakhtiari.
The green and gold do have capable backups who should play at a solid level on Sunday. Elgton Jenkins has been good this year and AJ Dillon is averaging 4.3 yards per carry this season, which isn’t much off from Jones’ 4.4 yards per attempt.
Since the Minnesota Vikings are the healthier team coming into Week 11, should that give them an advantage over the Green Bay Packers in Week 11? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
