Three Vikings are listed questionable to play Saturday night in Green Bay, where the NFC North champions can strengthen their foothold on a first-round bye in the playoffs.
Left tackle Riley Reiff (ankle), safety Andrew Sendejo (ankle) and cornerback Mackensie Alexander (ribs) are questionable, or the NFL’s version of 50/50 to play against the Packers. Reiff was held out last week due to the ankle injury suffered in Carolina on Dec. 10.
Reiff was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday. Both Sendejo and Alexander were able to get in full practices on Thursday. Tackle Rashod Hill, safety Anthony Harris and cornerback Terence Newman would see increased roles if any of the three are sidelined against the Packers.
“He looked better today,” head coach Mike Zimmer said of Reiff. “I think there’s still a chance.”
Cornerback Tramaine Brock (foot) is the only Vikings player on the active roster ruled out for Saturday night’s game.
Tight end Kyle Rudolph will play despite being limited in practice throughout the week due to his injured ankle.
The Packers will be without receiver Davante Adams (concussion), who was ruled out by head coach Mike McCarthy on Thursday. Adams took the illegal blindside block from Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis, who is serving a one-game suspension for the hit.
