The Vikings have several significant names on their injury report this week, but it appears most of them will be able to play on Thursday night. The exception is receiver Adam Thielen (hamstring), who left last week’s win in the 1st quarter and did not practice this week. He was ruled out on Wednesday afternoon and will set his sights on the game in Kansas City on November 3.
The Redskins are dealing with much more uncertainty with regard to injuries. Two members of their secondary are questionable to play after missing the week of practice – safety Montae Nicholson (ankle) and cornerback Josh Norman (thigh/hand). Three regular contributors on offense are also on the injury report – tight end Vernon Davis (concussion) and running backs Adrian Peterson (ankle) and Chris Thompson (toe). Davis and Thompson have been ruled out for the game while Peterson is listed as questionable.
Steve Jordan to be inducted into Vikings Ring of Honor at halftime
Tonight’s game is a big spot. It’s Thursday Night Football. It’s Primetime Purple night. And the Vikings will welcome the 25th member to their Ring of Honor.
The newest member is former tight end Steve Jordan and he will be inducted at halftime.
Jordan played 13 seasons for the Vikings from 1982-94, finishing his career with 498 catches for 6,307 yards and 28 touchdowns. He went to six Pro Bowls, won three NFC Central titles and made six playoff appearances during his final nine seasons with the club. He ranks third in team history in receptions, trailing only Cris Carter (1,004) and Randy Moss (587).
