Vikings-Packers Injury Report: Daniels, Raji, Bakhtiari, and Shields all Questionable

New, comments

Several Green Bay starters will likely be game-time decisions for Sunday.

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Between the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings, there are 17 of 44 possible starters on both teams who showed up on the teams' injury reports on Friday. The Packers have 11 of those 17, but arguably the biggest name on either side is running back Adrian Peterson.

Here is a breakdown of both teams' reports.

Packers Injury Report

The Packers have five players listed as questionable this week, and all five are starters. Among them, only B.J. Raji and Sam Shields have practiced this week, with Shields being limited both on Wednesday and Thursday while Raji practiced on Thursday only. All five of them were estimated as limited on Friday, however, and we will find out more about their statuses on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the entire starting offensive line shows up on the report once again. Thankfully, Bryan Bulaga has been working in practice all week so far and appears on track to play on Sunday, which would mean no Josh Walker at right tackle.

Out

TE Justin Perillo (hamstring)

Vikings Injury Report

The Vikings, on the other hand, have only a single player listed lower than probable for Sunday. That player is tackle Linval Joseph, who has missed three games so far this season to injury in weeks 13 through 15. If he cannot play, Kenrick Ellis is his likely replacement.

Though Adrian Peterson did not practice on Wednesday and Thursday, that appears to be precautionary as he was working fully on Friday. The same goes for safety Harrison Smith, who was limited early in the week but was a full participant today as well.

Doubtful

DT Linval Joseph (foot)

Probable

DT Sharrif Floyd (knee)
DE Everson Griffen (shoulder)
S Anthony Harris (hip)
OT Matt Kalil (lower leg)
RB Adrian Peterson (ankle/shoulder)
