Vikings at Falcons Inactives for Week 9 of 2023

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.
