Some players might not be on the field on Monday Night Football in Week 2 when the Minnesota Vikings take on the Philadelphia Eagles.
Injuries are one of the worst parts of the NFL. At any moment, a team like the Minnesota Vikings could be missing an essential part of their game plan and need to make adjustments heading into an important game.
Let’s look at who is in danger of missing time on Monday Night Football when the Eagles and Vikings meet at Lincoln Financial Field according to the official website of the Vikings.
- Andrew Booth Jr., CB – Quad
- Jonathan Bullard, DE – Biceps
- Lewis Cine, S -knee
- D.J. Wonnum, LB – Foot
- Patrick Peterson, CB – Not Injury Related – Personal
Not having Andrew Booth available for cornerback depth is a bit scary, especially with Patrick Peterson showing up on the report with a personal matter. However, the Vikings should still have a strong defense to face off against the Eagles.
It is expected that first-round draft pick Lewis Cine will make his NFL debut on Monday, which should be fun for Viking fans hoping to see the young defender in action.
- Landon Dickerson, G – Illness
- Jack Stoll, TE- ankle
Most members of the Eagles were on their weekly report for rest leading up to Monday night’s game. Don’t expect any big names to sit out in Week 2.
The official inactive reports for both teams will be issued before kickoff, so keep your eyes peeled for those. However, it is good to see both sides be close to fully healthy for an important early-season matchup. This should be a competitive prime-time battle that could impact the future playoff picture of the NFC.
