Minnesota Vikings Injury Report and Inactive List: Ponder Ready To Start Against Lions, Peterson Inactive

The Minnesota Vikings visit the Detroit Lions on Sunday afternoon but they won't have their full complement of offensive weapons to throw at the Lions.

As previously posted, Adrian Peterson is listed on the team's official inactive list for the game, missing his third straight game with a high ankle sprain. Bruising running back Toby Gerhart will continue starting in place of Peterson in the Vikings backfield. Peterson is with the team in Detroit and hoped to wake up Sunday morning feeling good enough to go, but that wasn't the case. 

Quarterback Christian Ponder will be active and ready to start after spending the week listed as questionable while tending to a hip injury.

Here is the full list of inactive players for the Vikings.

#Vikings Inactives vs. Lions - 28 RB Adrian Peterson, 31CB Chris Cook, 57 LB Xavier Adibi, 63 C Brandon Fusco, 75 OT DeMarcus Love, 89 TE Allen Reisner, 91 DE D'Aundre Reed.
