EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Friday ruled out cornerback Akayleb Evans (calf) and quarterback Jaren Hall (concussion) for Sunday night's visit to Denver to face the Broncos in Week 11.
Evans did not participate this week due to a calf injury he sustained last week against New Orleans.
Hall left Minnesota's Week 9 game at Atlanta late in the first quarter and has been working through concussion protocol. He did not participate on Friday.
Minnesota (6-4) listed linebacker Brian Asamoah II (ankle), receiver Justin Jefferson (hamstring), running back Alexander Mattison (concussion), quarterback Nick Mullens (back) and guard Chris Reed (foot) as questionable.
Jefferson, Mullens and Reed are in their 21-day observation windows after returning to practice. Jefferson began his window Nov. 8, and Mullens opened his Wednesday.
Vikings Head Coach Kevin O'Connell said, "We'll get together and kind of evaluate what that looks like for each one of those three. I do see us as having a good chance of having Nick Mullens available. He had a really good week for us."
Quarterback Joshua Dobbs (ankle), tight end T.J. Hockenson (ribs), defensive lineman Dean Lowry (groin) and receiver K.J. Osborn did not receive status designations and are expected to be available for the game.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7:20 p.m. (CT) Sunday at Broncos Stadium at Mile High.
Saturday, Nov. 18 update: WR Justin Jefferson and G/C Chris Reed downgraded to out.

Denver (4-5) ruled out safety P.J. Locke (ankle).

Guard Ben Powers (foot) was listed as limited Friday after being listed as a non-participant on Wednesday and Thursday.
Receivers Jerry Jeudy (hip) and Marvin Mims, Jr. (ankle) and outside linebackers Baron Browning (wrist/knee) and Ronnie Perkins (quadriceps) fully participated Friday.
