Vikings: QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) – Out RB Adrian Peterson (knee) – Out
WR Stefon Diggs (groin) – Questionable DE Everson Griffen (shoulder) – Questionable Eagles:
QB Carson Wentz (torn ACL) – Out RB Jay Ajayi (back) – Doubtful WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle) – Questionable
With both teams missing key players, it will be interesting to see how they fare against each other. The Vikings will need to rely on their strong defense to keep them in the game, while the Eagles will need to find a way to score without their star quarterback.
Running back Adrian Peterson is also listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury. Receiver Stefon Diggs is questionable with a groin injury, but is expected to play. For the Eagles, quarterback Sam Bradford is listed as probable with a shoulder injury.
He’s expected to start against the Vikings. Running back Ryan Mathews is also probable with an ankle injury. receiver Jordan Matthews is questionable with a back injury, but should be good to go on Sunday.
It looks like the Vikings will be without their starting quarterback and running back for this one, which could make things tough against an Eagles team that’s looking like they could be one of the best in the NFC this season. We’ll see if Hill can step up and lead Minnesota to victory in what should be a great game between two division rivals.
How Many Players are on Each Team’S Injury Report
Each player listed on the injury report must be given one of the following designations: probable, questionable, doubtful or out. The Probable designation means that a player has a 75% chance of playing in the upcoming game. The Questionable designation means that a player has a 50% chance of playing.
The Doubtful designation means that a player has a 25% chance of playing. And finally, the Out designation means that a player will not play in the upcoming game. So, to answer your question, there is no set number of players who can be listed on each team’s injury report.
It simply depends on how many players on the roster are actually injured and how severe those injuries are.
Who are the Key Players That are Injured
Gordon Hayward – Hayward suffered a horrific leg injury in the opening minutes of the Celtics’ season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers. He underwent surgery and is expected to miss the rest of the season. Kevin Love – Love missed six weeks with a broken hand but has returned to action for the Cavs.
However, he re-injured his hand last week and is now sidelined indefinitely. Kristaps Porzingis – The New York Knicks star forward tore his ACL in February and will miss the rest of this season as well as all of next season recovering from surgery.
How Will the Injuries Affect Each Team’S Performance
Here’s a look at how each team is likely to be affected by these key injuries: The Green Bay Packers were already facing an uphill battle without their starting quarterback, but with Rodgers now out for the season with a broken collarbone, things are looking even bleaker in Green Bay. It’s hard to overstate just how important Rodgers is to the Packers; he’s one of the best quarterbacks in the league and has been single-handedly responsible for some of their most impressive victories in recent years.
With him out of commission, it will be up to backup QB Brett Hundley to try and keep the Packers afloat. Unfortunately, Hundley is largely untested and it remains to be seen if he can step up and fill Rodgers’ shoes. The Packers’ playoff hopes took a major hit with Rodgers’ injury, and they’ll need Hundley to play above his level if they want any chance at making a run at Super Bowl LII.
The New York Giants were also dealt a serious blow when star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.’s season came to an abrupt end due to a gruesome ankle injury suffered in Week 5 against the Chargers. Beckham was off to another stellar season before going down, racking up almost 600 yards and three touchdowns in just four games played. His absence will leave a massive hole in New York’s offense; not only was he one of Eli Manning’s favorite targets, but he was also one of the most dangerous weapons in all of football.
The Giants will have to find someone else to step up and fill Beckham’s void if they want any chance at contending for a playoff spot this year. Finally, we come to perhaps the most devastating injury of all: Houston Texans defensive end J.J Watt rupturing his patellar tendon during Sunday night’s game against division rivals Kansas City Chiefs .
Vikings Injured Reserve
While it’s always unfortunate to see players get hurt, it’s nice to know that there’s a place for them to go where they can still be part of the team. Here’s everything you need to know about IR and the Vikings.
The Eagles will be without receiver DeSean Jackson, who is out with an ankle injury. Tight end Dallas Goedert is also out with a calf injury.
