The final Minnesota Vikings injury report has been shared for Week 11. There are some key names in this week's report.

Entering Week 11, the Minnesota Vikings are on a five-game winning streak but have been dealing with injuries that have forced players to miss either a short period of time or be placed on season-ending injured reserve.

On Friday afternoon, the Vikings released their final injury report. Seven players were included in the report with two of those players being declared out heading into their Sunday Night Football game against the Denver Broncos.

Here is the official final injury report for Week 11 as shared on the official X account of the Minnesota Vikings.

Taking a deeper look into the Minnesota Vikings injury report

The good news is that Josh Dobbs is nowhere to be seen in the report, meaning he will be the team's starting quarterback. However, the situation for a quarterback to act as his backup on Sunday night is up in the air.

Rookie passer Jaren Hall has been ruled out and Nick Mullens is said to be a possibility to be active, but is still declared as questionable. The only other quarterback Minnesota has is Sean Mannion, who is on the team's practice squad.

Running back is another interesting situation. If Alexander Mattison can't go, Ty Chandler could be in line for a bigger workload with Kene Nwangwu helping to carry the load against a Denver defense that is allowing the most total rushing yards (1,425) and yards per carry (5.6) in the league.

Superstar wide receiver Justin Jefferson is listed as questionable but has not yet been added to the team's active roster. It would not be surprising if he was not in action on Sunday. At least K,J. Osborn appears to be good to go.


Defensively, Minnesota will miss Akayleb Evans. With him out, the Vikings will need to rely on young cornerbacks Mekhi Blackmon and Andrew Booth Jr. to step up and limit the offensive output of an underrated Denver team.
