The Vikings issued their final injury report for the week and it's lengthy.
Six players were declared out: running back Matt Asiata, defensive tackle Fred Evans, right tackle Phil Loadholt (concussion), tight end Kyle Rudolph (fractured foot), safety Jamarca Sanford (groin) and cornerback Chris Cook (hip).
Defensive tackle Letroy Guion (chest/knee) and left guard Charlie (elbow) are listed as doubtful, which means there's only a 25 percent chance they will play.
Tight end Rhett Ellison (ankle) is questionable.
Cornerbacks Xavier Rhodes (shoulder) and Josh Robinson (chest) had full participation in practice on Wednesday and are listed as probable.
With Sanford sidelined, the Vikings will start Andrew Sendejo and Mistral Raymond at safety for a second consecutive game. Robert Blanton will split reps with Raymond again.
Loadholt will be replaced by J'Marcus Webb at right tackle and Joe Berger likely will replace Johnson at left guard.
