The Minnesota Vikings announced the following players will be inactive for their Week 9 road game at the Atlanta Falcons:
Safety Lewis Cine
Running back Kene Nwangwu
Linebacker Brian Asamoah II
Tight End Nick Muse
Tackle Christian Darrisaw
Receiver Jalen Nailor
Defensive lineman Dean Lowry
This means rookie quarterback Jaren Hall will make his first career start without Darrisaw protecting his blindside or receiver Justin Jefferson (on Injured Reserve) catching passes.
Darrisaw was added to the injury report late in the week.
When Darrisaw missed time earlier this season, veteran David Quessenberry replaced him.
The Vikings have tackle Hakeem Adeniji active for the first time.
Nwangwu is inactive for the second week in a row after making his 2023 debut against San Francisco.
Nailor was elevated to the 53-man roster Saturday, completing his return from Injured Reserve.
Receiver Drake London
Quarterback Logan Woodside (emergency third QB)
Fullback Keith Smith
Offensive lineman Jovaughn Gwyn
Defensive lineman Travis Bell
Defensive lineman Joe Gaziano
