Buccaneers At Vikings: Henderson Active, Likely To Start

It appears that reports of the demise of Vikings' linebacker E.J. Henderson for this week's game were greatly exaggerated. The Vikings have released their list of the players that they have deactivated for this week's contest, and Henderson's name is not on it, meaning that he will likely be the starter for the Vikings at middle linebacker this afternoon.

Henderson had experienced some swelling in his knee earlier this week, but had some fluid drained off of it and will be a go this afternoon.

The seven players that the Vikings have deactivated are as follows:

DE Adrian Awasom
DB Brandon Burton
WR Greg Camarillo
C Brandon Fusco
T DeMarcus Love
S Mistral Raymond
DE D’Aundre Reed

The Buccaneers have deactivated the following players:

SS Larry Asante
T Demar Dotson
DB Anthony Gaitor
T James Lee
DB Myron Lewis
WR Sammie Stroughter

Tampa's list is currently missing a name. When we find out who that is, we will add it to this update.
