LT Riley Reiff active for Vikings vs. Ravens, WR Michael Floyd is not

The Vikings will have left tackle Riley Reiff on Sunday against the Ravens. Reiff was questionable after he was added to the injury report Friday due to an ankle injury. He’s officially active.

They will not have two receivers in Michael Floyd (hamstring) and Stefon Diggs (groin). That opens the door for rookie receiver Rodney Adams, who is active for his first NFL game against the Ravens. May he get his shot at kick returner? The Vikings had switched to receiver Stacy Coley in the 23-10 win against the Packers.

Cornerback Mackensie Alexander (hip) is also inactive due to injury. The Vikings had two healthy scratches in defensive end Tashawn Bower and tackle Aviante Collins.

Three Vikings starters were already ruled out after missing practice all week: QB Sam Bradford (knee), Diggs (groin) and LG Nick Easton (calf). Case Keenum and Jeremiah Sirles will start again for Bradford and Easton.

Ravens (and former Vikings) receiver Mike Wallace was questionable due to a back injury, but is active and will play in his return to Minnesota.

Ravens’ inactives:WR Breshad Perriman (concussion), OL Matt Skura (knee), TE Maxx Williams (ankle), RB Terrance West (calf), LB Tim Williams (thigh), WR Chris Matthews (thigh) and WR Jeremy Maclin.

Diggs will miss second straight game; Bradford and Easton out, too

The Vikings will be without receiver Stefon Diggs, who has been ruled out after not practicing all week.

Diggs (groin), quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) and left guard Nick Easton (calf) have been ruled out by the Vikings ahead of Sunday’s game against the Ravens at U.S. Bank Stadium. Quarterback Case Keenum and left guard Jeremiah Sirles are expected to start again.

All three players have been held out since the Oct. 9 win in Chicago.

One midweek addition to the injury report is cause for concern. Left tackle Riley Reiff is now listed as questionable to play Sunday after injuring his ankle. He was limited during Friday’s practice. However, remember the NFL no longer lists players as ‘probable,’ and most players listed as ‘questionable’ under head coach Mike Zimmer have ultimately played.

Three others are questionable: Receiver Michael Floyd (hamstring), cornerback Mackensie Alexander (hip) and cornerback Tramaine Brock (hamstring).

Two defenders are set to return to the Vikings lineup. Safety Andrew Sendejo (groin) practiced all week and will play against the Ravens after watching the Vikings’ win vs. the Packers from the sideline. Linebacker Anthony Barr (concussion/ankle) practiced in full on Friday and has cleared the concussion protocol, according to Zimmer.
