The Minnesota Vikings are gearing up for one of their biggest games of the season as they face the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football. The one thing they have going for them is an advantage on the injury report, though Friday's version wasn't quite as cheery as Thursday's looked.
Phil Loadholt was added, but only due to illness -- and apparently not a very serious one as he was a full participant -- while offensive guard Anthony Herrera was definitely ruled out for the Packers game. Head coach Leslie Frazier explained why during Friday's media availability.
"He's still making progress, but not to the point where we could say, 'OK, let's go out and try to do something,'" coach Leslie Frazier said. "They haven't cleared him to go out and try to participate even in practice, so we just have to wait."
Joe Berger will start in his place.
The Vikings entire injury report is included below.
