Vikings at Bengals Final Week 15 Injury Report: Mattison, O'Neill & Nailor Out

EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings (7-6) on Thursday ruled out running back Alexander Mattison, right tackle Brian O'Neill and receiver Jalen Nailor for Saturday's Week 15 game against the Bengals (7-6) in Cincinnati.

Mattison and O'Neill suffered ankle injuries on Sunday at Las Vegas. Nailor entered concussion protocol after a helmet-to-helmet hit that was not flagged.

The Vikings listed receiver Justin Jefferson (chest) and guard Chris Reed (illness) as questionable.

Left guard Dalton Risner (ankle) and right guard Ed Ingram (hip) did not receive designations and are expected to be available.

Minnesota opted to practice indoors but open the doors to let in colder temperatures.

Kickoff is noon (CT) Saturday.
