Most of the guys out on Sunday have been out for a couple of weeks (Franks, Blackmon, Harrell). The only starters who are missing are Coston, who's been slowly coming back from his ankle injury for a few weeks now, and Collins, who just got hurt in Kansas City and is being replaced by Rouse. The offensive line is better with Coston instead of RG Jason Spitz, but there isn't a major difference between the two players. Neither can outplay Minnesota's DTs Pat and Kevin Williams anyway. As I mentioned earlier in the week it doesn't help to lose Collins, but it's not a big drop off in playing Rouse. A number of players are playing through some minor injuries, but the team will be almost at 100% on Sunday.
