One defensive end up, one defensive end down.
The Vikings will get back sack leader Everson Griffen, who is three weeks removed from injuring his foot against the Browns. Griffen was still limited in practice throughout the week, so we’ll see whether he handles a full role per usual. Griffen needs at least one sack in his next two games to tie the NFL record of 10 consecutive games with a sack.
Brian Robison will not play after injuring his back this week, which kept him out of Friday’s practice. He was listed questionable. Expect to see more Stephen Weatherly as the third defensive end behind Griffen and Danielle Hunter.
Right tackle Mike Remmers (concussion) and safety Andrew Sendejo (groin/hamstring) had already been ruled out on Friday.
Rashod Hill and Anthony Harris will start for Remmers and Sendejo.
Vikings’ inactives:Robison, Remmers, Sendejo, QB Kyle Sloter, WR Stacy Coley, RB Mack Brown and OT Aviante Collins.
Rams’ inactives:QB Brandon Allen, CB Troy Hill, RB Justin Davis, RB Malcolm Brown, OLB Ejuan Price, OT Cornelius Lucas and TE Derek Carrier.
