The Minnesota Vikings reportedly are expected to have running back Alexander Mattison in action on Sunday despite him dealing with a concussion. 

Mattison is listed as questionable for Sunday Night Football against the Denver Broncos. 

Getting Mattison back in action would be huge for a Minnesota team that is looking to solidify itself as a playoff contender. With Cam Akers done for the season, the Vikings need all the help they can get at running back.

Alexander Mattison anytime touchdown scorer

Mattison has three scores this season – all receiving – but he could find the end zone in this game as well. 

Denver has allowed the fifth most points in the NFL this season, and while Ty Chandler should also get touches in the backfield this week, Mattison will be heavily involved as well. 

With Cam Akers out, one of these two running backs should step up to find the end zone in Week 11.
