The Minnesota Vikings got some good news from Friday's injury report when it was determined the Oakland Raiders would be without starting running back Darren McFadden this weekend. The home team's injury report isn't excellent by any means, but it doesn't look quite as bad by comparison.
The Vikings announced that they will officially be without the services of safety Hussain Abdullah and offensive guard Anthony Herrera, both due to injury, as well as cornerback Chris Cook as he awaits the next step in his football career.
The bigger names on the Vikings injury report come under the questionable column, however, as Erin Henderson and Visanthe Shiancoe are both listed as questionable. Both players are out due to hamstring injuries, but they are both expected to play on Sunday.
The remainder of the injury report includes a few players that are probable. Long snapper Cullen Loeffler should be able to play with a shoulder injury, Michael Jenkins was listed this week with a knee injury and quarterback Christian Ponder made the injury report with a left hand injury.
