Here is who won't suit up in the season opener against the Bengals:

QB Kellen Mond

CB Cameron Dantzler

TE Ben Ellefson

DT James Lynch

LB Anthony Barr

Rashod Hill will be Minnesota’s Week 1 starter at left tackle. Darrisaw practiced on a limited basis this week but was ruled out for the season opener.

In Barr's place, linebacker Nick Vigil will handle relaying the defensive calls.

Dantzler struggled during the preseason, and Lynch is viewed as a depth lineman. Mond and Jones are rookies, and Ellefson was claimed off waivers on Sept. 1.

The Bengals announced the following players will not suit up:

T Fred Johnson

CB Nick McCloud

NT Tyler Shelvin

G D'Ante Smith
