We’ve got the final injury reports for both the Minnesota Vikings and the Indianapolis Colts before Sunday’s Week 2 matchup. Let’s take a look at who will be sitting this one out and who, potentially, could be.

We’ll start with the visiting team, as is our wont.

Minnesota Vikings Week 2 Injury Report

Player Position Injury Wednesday Thursday Friday Sunday Status
Player Position Injury Wednesday Thursday Friday Sunday Status
Cameron Dantzler CB Rib DNP DNP DNP Out
Jeff Gladney CB Knee DNP FP FP
Bisi Johnson WR Knee DNP FP FP

After not practicing all week, it isn’t surprising to see rookie cornerback Cameron Dantzler ruled OUT of this one with a rib injury. Hopefully he’ll be on the mend and back in the lineup soon.

Other than that, the Vikings have no injury issues to speak of. Both cornerback Jeff Gladney and wide receiver Olabisi Johnson missed Wednesday’s practice with knee issues, but both participated in full on Thursday and Friday so they’re good to go.

Now, on to the home team.

Indianapolis Colts Week 2 Injury Report

Player Position Injury Wednesday Thursday Friday Sunday Status

Jack Doyle TE Ankle/Knee DNP DNP DNP Out

Justin Houston DE Calf DNP DNP Questionable
Zach Pascal WR Ankle DNP LP FP Questionable
Michael Pittman Jr. WR Toe LP DNP Questionable
Isaiah Rodgers CB Calf DNP DNP Questionable
Malik Hooker S Illness DNP FP FP

Doyle will not rule on Sunday, as tight end Jack Doyle is the lone member of the Colts that has already been ruled out of this one. They do have several players listed as questionable, however, notably defensive end Justin Houston, who did not practice on either Thursday or Friday.

The Colts also gave three of their veterans rest days on Friday, as defensive lineman Denico Autry, offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo, and wide receiver T.Y. Hilton sat out of the Colts’ Friday practice session.

Those are your final injury reports for this one, folks. We’ll have more for you on this one as we get closer to kickoff.
