The Vikings and Lions have issued their Friday injury reports. Let’s get right down to the details…
The good news is that LB Ben Leber (back) was a full participant and is listed as probable for Sunday’s game. He was limited on Wednesday and Thursday and progressed to a full participant in Friday’s practice; it appears he’s in line to play this weekend. WR Percy Harvin (hip) was limited again today but that’s good news considering he missed Wednesday’s practice with the hip ailment and an illness.
There’s been speculation that both Chris Cook and Cedric Griffin could suit up this weekend. Cook was a full participant on Friday and Griffin was limited; both are listed as questionable on the injury report and the jury is still out as to whether they’ll play on Sunday.
Here is where the other players on the Vikings injury report stand: DT Jimmy Kennedy (knee) is questionable and WR Bernard Berrian (knee), QB Brett Favre (ankle/elbow), T Bryant McKinnie (finger) and C John Sullivan (calf) are all probable.
For the Lions, QB Matthew Stafford (shoulder) has been ruled out, as expected. Also ruled out are WR Nate Burleson (ankle) and LB Zach Follett. Listed as questionable are: DE Cliff Avril (finger/knee), LB Landon Johnson (neck), LB DeAndre Levy (groin) and G Stephen Peterman (foot). Listed as probable are: S C.C. Brown (forearm), S Louis Delmas (biceps/calf/groin) and LB Ashlee Palmer (ankle).
