The Vikings will start the seventh different offensive line combination during Sunday’s regular season finale against the Bears.
Mike Remmers will move inside from right tackle to right guard with that spot’s starter, Joe Berger, starting at center for the injured Pat Elflein. With Elflein resting a shoulder injury, the line shift ends with Rashod Hill getting the start at right tackle.
Top reserve Jeremiah Sirles has already been elevated to a starting job at left guard, where Nick Easton broke his ankle in Green Bay a week ago.
So, if you’re keeping track, the offensive line will be Riley Reiff, Sirles, Berger, Remmers and Hill against the Bears on Sunday.
Rookie defensive tackle Jaleel Johnson is active for the fifth time this season and could see some playing time with Shamar Stephen sidelined by an ankle injury.
Quarterback Case Keenum, running back Latavius Murray and receiver Adam Thielen are among a handful of Vikings with extra money on the line Sunday. Here’s the list of Vikings with reachable incentives against the Bears.
Long snapper Jeff Overbaugh is making his debut for the Vikings after Kevin McDermott was placed on injured reserve this week. McDermott dislocated his left shoulder in Green Bay.
Vikings’ inactives:Elflein (shoulder), Stephen (ankle), CB Tramaine Brock (foot), QB Kyle Sloter, WR Stacy Coley, DE Tashawn Bower and RB Mack Brown.
Bears’ inactives:OL Josh Sitton (ankle), RT Bobbie Massie (knee), QB Mark Sanchez, TE Adam Shaheen (chest), RB Taquan Mizzell, DL Rashaad Coward and S Deiondre Hall.
