Vikings’ game vs. the Panthers: Week 6 inactives



The Vikings got some good news on the Friday injury report.

The team had just DT Michael Pierce and TE Ben Ellefson on the report, after a week practice where a plethora of important Vikings players sat out at times.

Pierce, Ellefson and others are inactive for the Week 6 game against the Panthers. Here are the Vikings and Panthers players who definitely won’t see action:

  • LB Chazz Surratt

  • DT Michael Pierce

  • TE Ben Ellefson

  • DE Patrick Jones II

Analysis: Pierce and Ellefson being out should be expected after the team’s Friday injury report. Smith-Marsette is a big loss for the kick return unit.

  • LB Shaq Thompson

  • LB Kamal Martin

  • CB CJ Henderson

  • DT Phil Hoskins

  • DE Darryl Johnson

  • RB Spencer Brown

Analysis: Vikings fans won’t get to see Minnesota native Kamal Martin play against the Panthers. Shaq Thompson is a bigger loss to the linebacker unit, though. Christian McCaffrey isn’t on this list because the running back is on IR.
