Which players won’t be suiting up for the Minnesota Vikings and Washington Commanders when the two teams face off on Sunday?

With the Minnesota Vikings ruling him out on Friday due to a calf injury, we already know that Dalvin Tomlinson will be among the team’s inactives when they take on the Washington Commanders in a Week 9 matchup on Sunday.

For Tomlinson, this week’s contest against the Commanders will be the first time he’s ever missed a game due to injury since he entered the NFL in 2017. Through the first eight weeks of the season, the Vikings defensive lineman is PFF’s 18th-best graded interior defender, so he’ll certainly be missed out on the field against Washington on Sunday.

In addition to Tomlinson, Minnesota also ruled out rookie wide receiver Jalen Nailor on Saturday due to an illness. Nailor has appeared in six games for the Vikings this season, with 64 of his 65 snaps coming on special teams.
